I am dedicating today’s post to my Daddy. Most of you know that the whole reason I started this blog was to help myself process and deal with the pain of my Dad’s rare lung disease. In just over 2 years I have watched my Dad go from a vibrant man on his Harley to a frail man in his wheelchair completely on oxygen. I just don’t even know where to begin because there’s so much I HAVENT blogged about. Truth is by typing this it makes it more real and its so painful to admit how much it hurts to see Daddy suffer. I have left out a year of tests and processes but to make a VERY long story short- last Friday the best Father’s Day gift imaginable happened. Daddy was approved and is now officially on the donor list. He is only a candidate for a one lung transplant now because of his age. When we started this process he was supposed to be candidate for double lung AND heart transplant. We have to trust the Dr’s and just be so happy that they feel that one lung will be enough. Daddy is 3rd on the list. His nurse said she felt it could happen within a few months because the one lung transplant is more common. My dream of Daddy walking me down the aisle and dancing with me is within my grasp.
This song is the song that Daddy and I danced to when I was in junior high and Dad to me to a country bar and restaurant. It’s a very special song and its funny the things you remember.
