I was going through some of my old pics on my laptop and came across this one... It was taken 4 months ago. CAN YOU BELEIVE THAT!!! Just 4 months... I look like crap! Was on IV's and obviously the O2. I build tons of puzzles to keep busy. In fact, now that I think of it, I had started blogging by then. If you go back to the December posts you'll see that I was talking about getting the picc line etc... It was such a horrible place to be, and I'm SO thankfull it's over!!!!

Guess what?!?! The Oprah Magazine in SA e-mailed me yesterday! (and I almost deleted it because I thought it was just advertisements or something!) They want to do an article on me and the blog etc! How exciting is that?! Will be doing the interview via e-mail and they're coming next week for the photoshoot... Should raise some good organ donation awareness!!!!
Lunch with Aviva yesterday was fab, had a lovely time (thanks Aviva!). I've also made 15 copies of my cv and going to drop some of them off this afternoon, and have to go food-shopping again as well. This morning I had tea with my Aunt Deanie, which was also very nice. She took me to a great wool-shop where I got the most beautiful green/black wool to knit another scarf. Now I just need to finish the one I'm busy with, lol!
Going to Pretoria to my grandfather for the weekend! And then church on Sunday evening. My friend who was suppose to come with me can't make it anymore, but I'm still going! Will look like some terrorist with my mask sitting away from everyone all on my own, but who cares, lol! Have a good weekend!!!

You are so blessed to be where you are right now. The greatest blessing is your lease on life. I love your spirit and how you are truly making each day count for something, rather than just counting your days.

I continue to pray for you and your health, that you would continue to do well.

Praying also for church, that you would be fed with the word. Have a blessed day.

You have come such a long way in such a short time, Alice! God is so absolutely amazing. I'm so glad that you are living your life to the fullest.

How cool is this whole magazine deal? Whoo hoo! That's super awesome, Alice. Wow! Congrats on continuing to help raise awareness on organ donation.

Hallo Alice,
ek kan nog nie glo dat jy so vinnig gesond geword het nie! Elke keer wat ek jou blog lees is ek van voor af geinspireer. Ek hoop die werksoek gaan goed. Geniet dit!
En Oprah!! Gaan groot met die photoshoot! Jy gaan lekker gepamper word - yummy!

Very happy for you being out of that "horrible place" of IV's and
How exciting, being covered in the Oprah Magazine. What a perfect way for you to get your story out and to let people know how important becoming a donor is.
Good luck job hunting!
Have a great weekend.
