My friend James has received his gift of life; a third set of brand new chunkers.
(Yes, you read that correctly. He just had his second double lung transplant.)
But, unfortunately in transplantland, things are not smooth and it's chocked full of complications and risks. He's suffered and struggled so much and for so long. He's been in hospital since Christmas Day and in the ICU for months prior to receiving his new lungs.
Finally they came. A future was possible.
It IS possible.
However, he is having a hard time and recovery will be extremely tough. He needs us. He needs our prayers, positive vibes, etc - whatever you believe in.

Remember how lucky you are to breathe easy; to not have to struggle every day to simply exist.
