My dad is only 52 years old. He was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis at the end of 2007. He has deteriorated a great deal since then and we relocated to San Antonio, Texas to wait for a lung transplant. He barely got on the list about a week ago. Although we've been dealing with this for a little over a year, our hearts are breaking as well as our spirits. I am a 20 year old girl who cannot handle the thought of having to possibly live life without her father. My mom is the most caring and optimistic woman and its heartbreaking to see the effects this horrible disease has taken on our lives. Our support system was our family but they live in El Paso so obviously they couldn't move over here with us. We only have each other but we do need some advice on how to handle this or at least to know there are others plagued by this disasterous condition.
