Hi everybody! sorry for the lack of blogging for the past couple of days...
Alice is doing really well, physically she's getting stronger every day, and she can now manage to climb 2 sets of stairs 7 times a day! She's just incredibly bored, and considering getting herself a exercise bike!
She's also had visitors for the 1st time this past week. Her uncle and aunt came to visit, as well as a old school friend, Suzanne, who now stays in Johannesburg.
Alice says it's quite weird to not have to nebulise, or to cough as much as she used to, but she's slowly getting use to her mre normal life! She's also so amazed at how quickly she can get ready to go somewhere, no more need to cough as much as possible. She says she lost about 1,5kg since the transplant, but she's not worried as she's got a healthy appetite, and I'm sure she'll gain the weight she lost in no time.
This week she's seeing the surgeon on Tuesday, and the remainder of the staples will come out. Her wound is progressing well - it's starting to get better as every day goes by. On Thursday she's also seeing the lung specialist, who'll be doing some bloods, and another lung function test.
She's also going to discuss the possibility of coming to Port Elizabeth over Easter with the doctors.
I will be updating the blog again on Tuesday, after she's seen the doctor.
