    got back from papworth yesterday evening and the news is i have to have a double lung transplant. i had to go back today for a bone scan to see if my bones are strong enough for the op, the results of which will be sent to addenbrooks for analysis. the results will be known in 2 weeks. also have to have a report from the dentist to make sure i have no teeth or gum infections because i will have my immune system killed off for the opso any infection there could be very serious. also have to have an angiogram next wednesday at the royal free in london. if all is well then i immediately go on the transplant list then its just a matter off time and wait for the apprpriate donor lungs to become available. was told at papworth the op is only offered if you have around 2 years to live, so i guess as i am now thats all ive got left so its a no brainer to have the op even though the odds of long term survival are not great. so im even more scared right now than i was before :(

    OK. Mick. At least we know. Now, lets plan the plan. Stay safe. Strengthen yourself as much as you can (without risking your health). Start eating stupidly healthy foods. I'm serious, all these things matter.

    Oh, and prepare to be bossed to death. I am SO bossy when I'm worried about someone I care about!

    Now. We are all here with you and will walk every single step with you. It's going to be a journey that we all take together.

    Get a good lappie, with an aircard. We'll need to keep in touch no matter where you are.

    (I warned you about the bossy bit).

    I echo everything that Think said. She is a wise, wise lady. Put your focus onto being as healthy as you possibly can for this. Give yourself the very best chance.

    A huge hug Mick Oh, and another one, just because
