Alice here! I've asked Antoinette to copy and paste this to the blog for me... Still doing great. Had lung function tested today, and it's 81%! (fev1), last Thursday it was 64%! O2 sats were 98%! 3weeks and 2 days after surgery...The doctor was very happy. My sugar's been high lately, but I got insulin so hopefully that's sorted out now and I'll pick up some weight. I've also got a bit of trouble sleeping. I think it's because I have to sleep on my back and I've never in my life been able to do that because I couldn't breathe and/or coughed! But I'm not complaining, it feels so good to breathe! I should change the name of my blog, I'm not breathless anymore, lol! One of my guy friends joked that my standard in men is going to be considrably higher now, because it's going to be harder for someone to take my breath away! He was relieved when I told him he still made the cut ;-)I CAN'T WAIT for Andrew to come on Saturday! He always had to walk slowly for me because he's so tall and I couldn't keep up with his fast walking! Now I'll be able to keep up! I got more great news this morning... One of my Facebook friends, Samantha, who has been waiting for transplant for 2 years had her tx in December, just before xmas! I was so worried about her, because she wasn't replying to my messages and hadn't been active on Facebook since then. This morning one of her friends posted on her wall that she had her tx and was still in hospital. I think she had some complications but that she's ok now. I'm so happy for her!I have to go and exercise now... Bought myself a stationary bike yesterday! The 'problem' is that my legs get tired before my lungs feel like they've had any exercise, lol! Happy v-day to all... And thank you so much again for all the prayers, you people are amazing!
