In 2019, Steve was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis. In 2020, he had a collapsed right lung. After many procedures, it was determined that he has a trapped lung that won't inflate 100%. He was referred to Ochsner New Orleans for a lung transplant evaluation. In April 2021 right before he was put on the transplant list, the program was suspended. He was referred to one of the following programs: Dallas, Houston, or UAB in Alabama. We chose Houston as it is closest to where we live. Steve was placed on the transplant list in January 2022.
