Debbie came out of surgery last night at 7:30 and is resting comfortably in ICU.

Glad to hear she made it through the surgery well! I'm not too familiar with lung transplants... does making it through the surgery mean it was a success? Or will they have to wait to find out if her body accepts the new lung?

Hey, good question! I looked up the info. She's in ICU now, and then will stay in hospital 3-4 weeks. After that she will live in Jacksonville for 3 months and do transplant rehab therapy. She'll be on antibiotics for a few months because the immunosuppressive (anti-rejection) drugs really knock your immune system back. Then she'll be weaned off those and stay on the anti-rejection drugs, which cost a small fortune every month.

And yeah, it was a success. :)
