Tiffany celebrates the first anniversary of the double lung transplant, or her “Lungiversary” as she calls it! She takes us through the day she received “the call,” which was actually her first call for transplant after several years of waiting on the transplant list, from waking up around 2am to her hospital discharge – about a month. Tiffany recounts the emotions she felt, both a little fear and happiness, while waiting for the operating room to open up. In a touching moment she talks about the time she finally broke down in tears while being wheeled in. From there she elaborates about her extended recovery process, and the discomfort from needing to be intubated several times after transplant and prolonged time in the ICU. The podcast finishes with Tiffany relaying a message to her donor and how much happiness her second lease on life has brought to her!
