  • Qualifying for transplant is like going through the longest job interview, for a job you don't want, and wish you didn't need. The last six months, however is a reminder that my heart came to be in me only half, and due to that half heart it caused my lungs to fail too. So I sit in the hospital and take test after test, and continually interviewed by constant stream of doctors, nurses, social workers, psychologists who ask questions some of which I still have no answers to no matter how many times they ask them. I know soon I will have to answer the most important questions however. Do you want to be listed? Then do you want a heart/lung transplant?

    If only this were a job interview, however it is life.
