I honestly forgot about this event until last night when I received a reminder email & updated agenda. My local hospital was having a one-day symposium at a nearby campus & a few months ago had asked me to be part of a roundtable about lung transplant. It finally hit me last night that we are at the end of the month.
Today marks the start of the first ever LAM Awareness Month. June first was always LAM Awareness Day for several years prior. This year, it became an official awareness month.
I completed my first week of post transplant rehab. I did a mile on the treadmill in about 25 minutes which I wasn’t sure I’d be moving at that great a clip so soon. So that was a pleasant surprise.
This is still a hot topic. I know I discussed this awhile ago in a past post. I discussed it then more in the context of how I also have some friends here in the PA area that worked diligently for a few years to get the PA Bill passed.
That said, I think Brittney’s post (Brittany is one of my fellow bloggers from the Chronic Illness Blogger Network) is great & brings up additional food for thought.
I think she makes some excellent points.
