On Thursday she wasn't immediately responding to our daily chats, and I asked if she was OK. For the first time EVER she said "no". She was SUCH an optimist and and never said that she wasn't fine. I started worrying about her and my last message to her was when I went to bed on Thurs asking if she is breathing any better yet. On Friday morning when I put phone back on I saw she replied "Nope" at 22h30, and upon logging onto Facebook saw that her husband had posted that she had passed away a few hours after replying to me.
Melissa and Gail were my best pre-transplant CF friends, and I chatted to them a LOT. I can't believe both of them are gone in the same month. If only they had also gotten lungs in time. Wish more people were organ donors and wish they were as luckily as I have been. Hate this disgusting disease.
RIP Gail and hope that you and Melissa are together now running freely. My thoughts go out to her loving hubby and the rest of her family :-(
