Cheryl was diagnosed with Pulminary Fibrosis September 2016. She was put on Espirit to slow down the progression  which it did for 5 1/2 years.
 In August of 2021 Cheryl's breathing was getting worst.

Her Doctor at the University of Michigan referred her to the Henry Ford hospital in Detroit.
After a series of tests to qualify to get on the Transplant List for a Lung Transplant,  Cheryl qualified December 7th,  2021.
Cheryl was admitted to the hospital due to shortness of breath and her need for an Oxygen level more than she could get at home on December 31st, 2021. After a 12 hour operation  Cheryl received a Double Lung Transplant on January 6th, 2022.

She has had a bumpy road with infections and Pneumonia three times as of April 19th, 2022. This date is Cheryl's 110 days since her admission and 103 days since her Transplant.

At this time we're asking fir your Prayers so Cheryl can get well and come home.
