|My name is Jeremy and I live in a small town of 15,000 people. I was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis when I was a baby. Everything was going smoothly till January-Feburary of 2003 when I got really sick and Diabetes kicked in with out me knowing. I spent 4 months in Yale Hospital in Conneticuit. Where my doctor, Dr. Kim, took excelent care of me. While I was there I made the decesion to move back home to Illinois where I would have more help from friends and family. In July my dad and I made the 14 hour drive to move me into my sisters place. Now I have a new apt with my roomate, my mom, and its great. She helps me when I need it and I do what ever I can to help around the house. In January of 04 I was placed on the Lung Transplant List as Layola Hospital in Chicago, and I'm seen by Dr. Jain and Nurse Joanne at Northwestern Memorial Hospital also in Chicago. They have been taking excelent care of me also. And this is the best news of all on Feb. 15th at 1:30 pm i went in for surgery for my new lungs!! Wow I feel great now!|
|Hobbies and Interests|
|I LOVE BMWs! Before I had to stop working thats what I fixed. I was a BMW Technician, and loved every minute. Now I like spending time with my friends and family. I also like to learn about other countries and their customs. Tattoos, yeah I have 'em. Two actually and I'm not done either. I have a Cross over my heart in memory of my Grandpa Ralph and I have the chinese character for family on my forearm. I recently got into a new hobby, mini choppers. They're awesome its basicly a scaled down motorcycle all customized and chromed out! My neighbor bought one of the really cheap ones and I just have to out do him so I'm gonna have a custom builder make me one! hheehe So far the main parts that I want on it will be a 40" springer front end, 20" aluminum custom milled rim, aluminum drag bars and aluminum grips, and a foot brake. I'll post some pics when it comes in.|
