I'm at my dad's work again. Don't know WHEN we'll have internet access at the flat because Telkom's service is just pathetic! Feels so good to be blogging on my own! This week has been rather quiet so far. Did exercise on my bike, 3km on Monday and 5km yesterday. Will try and do at least another 5km today... My parents are going to a work function of my dad's so it's going to be me and the bike tonight.. I should rewrite Lance Armstrong's bestseller and call it 'It's all about the bike' !!!!
I've also started knitting a scarf for the winter, and built a 750 piece puzzle, just to realise that one piece is missing! And it's a new puzzle :-( I'm also reading a really good book, Innes of my soul, by Issabel Allende. Very interesting!
Seeing my lung specialist on Friday as well as going for bloods, x-rays and lung function. Rather looking forward to it! I enjoy going to the hospital because it's the most public place I can go to at the moment! Miss being around people!!! Antoinette would've come to visit me this weekend, but she couldn't get a flight :-( It's really a bummer, would've been great to see her. It's exactly a month ago that I saw all my friends (except Andrew that is!!!)! Today a month ago I was attending a farewell party of one of my friends, Simone, who's in London now. I actually blogged about it! Had to go with my portable O2...
I dream about my lungs all the time! Last night I dreamt that my sats had dropped to 80% and I freaked out. I also dreamt about some of the doctors and meeting other lung recipients. I'm still finding it strange not to cough at all and waking up in the morning without tons of mucus and not having to do nebs or physio. I've got so much extra time!!! And energy, because coughing for hours can take it's toll, lol.
Tomorrow evening we've got old family friends who stay in Joburg coming over for pizza (another battle with the mask awaits!) and my aunt and uncle from Bloemfontein are also coming to visit somewhere over the weekend. So I'm looking forward to that. The photo I posted is me and Andrew drinking coffee with his sister outside this weekend. She took the photo! As you can see Andrew held his breath and didn't come to close to me for fear of germs! Luckily I also know he's a healthy guy ;-) At the moment it's really hot here, so I prefer being outside without a mask to inside, as the mask makes you even hotter!
I see in one of the older posts my sister said that the transplant took 4hours 30 mins... she made a mistake, it was actually roundabout 7 hours. I corrected it. That's about all for now. Please pray that the Drs appointment goes well, although I'm sure it will. Will update on Friday via Anto.
