Update!

We met with the BC transplant team yesterday and it went very well. Renee and Gary hooked up with us over in Vancouver and came to the meetings too. From what the BC team can see, Joey looks like a good candidate for lung transplantation. Right on!

The doctor from the BC transplant team (who we met yesterday) is now going to write a summary letter about Joey and will send that, along with his test results, to the Toronto transplant team. They will then schedule a teleconference with us. Provided it goes well, the next time we hear from them will be to pack up and ship out. This should all happen in about a month or two.

Once we get to Toronto, Joey will have a few more tests to undergo before he is accepted onto their waiting list. We’re told it usually takes about a month for this to happen.

So there you have it. That’s the scoop for now. We’ll post again when we hear any news. In the mean time, we’re gonna keep on trucking: work, sleep, and watch “24” every other waking hour. That Jack Bauer is one crazy card!

Signing off until further notice,

Special agents Joey and Kirstin

We’re Online… Yay!

CF sucks is now online! (But if you’re reading this you’ve probably already figured that out). This will be our fully functional website for all of your updating needs. Thank you so much Travis, for the awesome design and the use of your server, not to mention posting our updates through out the process. You Rock!

The way it will work is that as we get any news, we will update it on this site. I don’t expect there to be too many updates until we get on the road to Toronto, because it seems that all we do is a whole lot of waiting. Having said that, we have an appointment with the BC transplant team on Wednesday June 28th, only three more days. I know what you’re thinking, “Already!” Yes, believe it or not. We will have an update about the particulars of the appointment posted on the site on Thursday or Friday.

Thank you everyone for all of the support you have offered us throughout this process. I hope we will be in touch and updating you all about how good I am feeling with my new lungs very soon.

Ta ta for now,

J & K
