    Kirstie has just posted the following on her facebook:
    “I have been given my last chance at tx, I have 2 go up 2 harefield in hope that some lungs become available, if im there it means lungs that they couldnt have used b4 because im so far away can be used & that lungs that may not be quite up to par might be used now. I will be staying there under there icu untill they decide im to ill for transplant, this is it my last hope, im really close to the edge & need all your prays. I am traveling by air ambulance in the next 30minutes.”
    Please please keep Kirstie in your thoughts.

    **Latest Update from LLTGL**
    11.07.11 – Kirstie has got her new lungs!!! Please keep the incredible family who said “yes” in your thoughts.
    12.07.11 – Kirstie remains sedated, and the team are re-fitting her tracheostomy as her oxygen levels are a little low. Neither of these things are unusual at this time; people can remain sedated for several days or they can be woken up quite quickly. News and updates are likely to be fairly limited as she now has the long road of recovery ahead of her.
