Lung transplant committee votes yes!

Now I can exhaaaaaaaaaale! :)

I'll be on the list as soon as the insurance companies give the okay. It's already been pre-approved, so there shouldn't be any issues, it's just a matter of waiting I don't know how long.

I'm so happy and relieved for you!

I've been reading your blog for quite a while now and was so saddened to read about your recent health issues. I've been thinking of you all day and am so happy to hear all is a go (or almost a go). Insurance should be a piece of cake after all you have been through recently.

What a wonderful Christmas gift.

Wonderful, just wonderful.

:D awesome. On a note similar to bobbie's, I found your blog courtesy of a friend who is also fighting cancer tooth-and-nail. Originally became interested in your politics but when you posted about your health, it just made me want to check in here more often -- hits close to home in many ways.

Congrats and keep up the fight.

Blogfather Jim,

Thank God! If anyone deserves to be on the list, it's you.

We're all pulling for you!

I'm glad for you, congrats!

Somehow "I told you so" just doesnt quite cut it.
