But before I get to that... I found out about 2 hours ago that they may have found lungs for Tricia again!!!! PLEASE pray that this is not another dry-run!!! That would just be cruel and horrible and emotionally DRAINING on them! And since it's Nate's birthday today, new lungs for her would just be the PERFECT gift!!!!!! I'll be sleeping when they hear what's going on, but hopefully when I wake up tomorrow morning I'll get amazing news!!!!
Monday evening's pizza evening was great! The first pic is me and the girls that were there... Tuesday was BUSY!!!! Went for a walk on the beach with Daniel at 6am, then I went to say bye to my 2 physio's (pic on the right is me with Karen, on my right, and Liesl on my left), then I had coffee with Karien, then I had lunch with Daniel, then I went to say bye to Anto, then a friend's dad came to say hi and bye, then I had coffee with my CF doc, Dr Gebers. (bottom pic). And later in the evening Daniel came to say bye. But at least I saw everyone that I had to and had a BALL of a time!
MANY times when I was so sick I often lay awake in my bed thinking too much scary stuff. Then I forced myself to imagine what it will be like the first time my friends see me after the transplant, assuming I made it till then. I imagined their reactions, How I would look (pink and fatter!), how it would feel not being the 'mentally strong but physically weak one' and not holding them back anymore. Because we couldn't do much when we socialised. It basically came down to watching a dvd or playing a boardgame. But they supported me all the way. And my first visit home was EVERYTHING I imagined and more... How amazing. All those nights I had faith that it would happen in my heart, but my head wasn't so sure. I'm really going to miss everyone! I'm a bit sad on the one hand, but I've got a great weekend to look forward to. But more about that later... Have to start unpacking and stuff!!! Just HAD to blog first!
