Jordan Ulrich's Lung Transplant Fund
Today, Jordan went to the lung transplant clinic to see her doctor, Dr C. Her PFT's had dropped significantly, she blew:
47% on FVC or 1.99
31% on her FEV or 1.11
13% on her FEF25/75 or 0.56
The 31% is concerning. It's a big drop. The part I'm worried about is the 13% number. That sometimes is a good indicator of BO, or deadly chronic rejection. So...tomorrow Jordan is having a bronc. If her stent on the left side is plugged up we will rejoice because that will mean that's the problem. If it is NOT plugged up then Dr C will take biopsies to see if she has BO. Tonight I guess we will have to pray it IS clogged up, strange since usually we are praying for the stent to not be blocked up. I asked Dr C how worried he is. He says if the stent is blocked then he's not worried, if it is not blocked then he will be worried. Dr C is NEVER worried! He said we may have a problem. :(
If it is the stent we can probably leave to go home on Tuesday! If not....who knows!
