Double-lung transplant patient dances her way out of hospital
Debra Morgan, 60, suffered from pulmonary fibrosis for nearly a decade
ORLANDO, Fla. – It was a wonderful day full of cheers and dancing for one central Florida woman, as she left the hospital.
Debra Morgan led a team of nurses, doctors and her care team down the halls of Florida Hospital by doing the Silento's "Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)."
It was a dream come true for the woman who enjoyed dancing.
Morgan, 60, was the recipient of a double lung transplant at Florida Hospital in Orlando on Jan. 30.
For almost a decade Morgan who had pulmonary fibrosis used an oxygen tank to help her breathe.
The popular dance song was a suggestion by one her granddaughters.
“I can breathe and dance. I could never do that,” Morgan told Florida Hospital.
After the surgery Morgan gave her new set of lungs a pep talk.
“For your family and mine, let’s do this. We have lives to live and we’re going to make a difference in this world,” Morgan told Florida Hospital.
Morgan made her dreams come true to be able to participate in her favorite activity before going home.
