New lungs would give you a new lease on life.   Whether human or piggy, it matters not.

Re: Re: Re: actually as your cyber pal, I really disagree with your worthiness to

Thank you for sharing your wisdom, Dear Kabu..There are two precious little girls living across the street from me, sisters both with cf. The youngest is only 18 months old and already needs supplemental oxygen because of lung damage. So tragic but transplant is the great hope for saving their lives of course. I agree about parents who continue to have more children after the first diagnosis.

Re: Re: actually as your cyber pal, I really disagree with your worthiness to

It is of course really complicated and they try very very hard to place the donor with the best possible chance for the recipient...match wise so It really isn't a choice of who is the most worthy, but who is the beset match. I've nursed kids with cystic F. and it is just tragic. One was a family of 6 kids...well two had already died. It was not easy, not being judgemental of a couple who kept on producing when they knew how the children were to suffer......

I'd say that was very good news! Some of the breakthroughs of modern medicine never cease to amaze me! And I'm not going to make any cracks about pork, or bacon, or sausage links, or Spam, or . . . well, you get the idea.  I understand your reservations about accepting human lungs, but, as long as there's hope . . .

Re: actually as your cyber pal, I really disagree with your worthiness to

Oh thank you so much, Dear Kabu - truly warms my heart, friend.. I don't feel this way out of nobility; I have seen children with cystic f. with the barrel chest, struggling to breathe and know I would want them to get lungs before me because I have had years of healthy, happy living and to know one of them died while I survived just seems unbalanced or something in the bigger scheme of things. Of course I know it is more complicated and not simply a case of "skip me" and let her or him go instead; donor compatibility issues, etc.
Again, Thank you..

Re:

Yes, it is and will be, FSI. I don't think I would have any conflict with accepting pig lungs...:) Thank you for reading.

Re:

Lol, CCT, I am no saint, believe me but I do appreciate your thought. Yes, they do heart valves made from pig hearts, if I'm not mistaken. I am doing my best to stay as healthy as possible and for the moment I am doing pretty good, even in this horrid heat. Thank you..

Reply yes I've changed my mind take the best you can get Ray, as my old mate Kabu says you deserve it and we respect your idealism and love you for that.

actually as your cyber pal, I really disagree with your worthiness to

receive the lungs. You give so much, have such drive against injustice, are imprtant to your friends who love you.

It's amazing all that modern medicine can do and in this case what it might be able to do...It'll be interesting to see how animal rights organizations feel about this.

Oink oink, well apart from being rather Saintly Ray . I cannot see it is any different than having piggy valves. After all it is only tissue, it would be nice to know how many have taken this option. In any case it is nice to know that work is being done on this project. My advice would be to keep as fit as you can and don't lose that sense of humour.

That is quite the breakthrough! I think that anyone who is on the list should get a transplant personally! I do think it is commendable the stance you have taken though! sam
