William C. White:(9-26-18 nf) We visited with W.C. today by phone and he reported that he had a double lung transplant on 12-23-17. After a hospital stay, he was released and then went back into the hospital in late January. After a brief stay, he was released and has had relatively few issues since that time as most transplant patients do. He did attend a HPROA meeting 2 months ago but doctors appointments generally interfere with those and other plans. He does take a lot of medications but he is doing well and expects to be at our next meeting and appreciates all our prayers.
