John - Really happy to hear how well you are doing. I'm so glad that you were able to get a new set of lungs, and that you're doing so well. IPF is a horrible, horrible disease. I've been signed on as an organ donor for as long as I can remember. Giving continued life to others is about the most selfless (and easy) thing one can do. Stay strong! And TolerancEJ, I'm truly sorry to hear about your mom. My mom had it as well. If you ever want to talk, just ping me. I've been through it and learned way more about pulmonology than I ever wanted to know.
