Lauren's in again: a post from Brad

Hi all,

I just wanted to let you know that Lauren ended up in the hospital again. We were actually in the process of transplant evaluation (for double-lung), and during our meeting with one of the nurse coordinators of the transplant program Lauren de-saturated pretty badly; we stopped the meeting and rushed her downstairs to the ER.

That was a really scary day. She's doing a lot better now, but she's still in the Critical Care Unit. Also, we're in a different hospital than usual since our meeting with the transplant team was in a different place than the CF clinic.

Her oxygen saturation is doing well (with 7 LPM through an oxymizer), though it was also discovered that she has pneumonia in her right lung. They've also suspended the transplant evaluation until she's feeling better.

Brad, thank you for this update. I noticed that I was missing her from FaceBook and wondered if she was o.k.

Praying for you all.
Thank you for updating her blog w/ how she is doing. Please let her know that we are praying for her and you as well!
Thanks for the update. I noticed she hadn't posted in a while and was hoping she was okay. I'll keep you guys in my prayers.
Prayers for both of you
