Stuff at the moment

I've been up since 4:30am this morning, thinking way too much about the whole getting-a-job thing. Up to now I've been totally unsuccessfull in getting a job. If I really want to I can get an accounting job, but I'm not sure if I want to do accounting every day... When you're given a new lease of life, you don't want to spend you precious days doing boring mundane stuff... I do believe that the right thing will come along at the right time, and I have experienced that when one door closes another opens. (see my blog posts on 22 January!!!!!!) The thing is, that there is a postition going open at the Organ Donor Foundation, which would pretty much be everything I'm looking for... It would mean spending my time doing the thing that I have a PASSION for. And I really believe that I would be GOOD at it. So right now I'm just trying to get an interview, which will be in 3 weeks' time. WISH ME LUCK.

Have been gymming as usual this week. Giving today a skip, as my legs are tired and tomorrow Louz and I are going to do some exercise together for the first time in 6 years or so. She's coming to gym with me, as I'm allowed to take 2 friends with during May. Can't wait to show off with my new lung-power... Louz is arriving late this afternoon. Also went for a quick visit at the hospital yesterday, as I needed to pick up some notes for blood work and x-rays for next week. (my Doc always forgets to give it to me when I'm there for an appointment, as my healthy lungs take HIS breath away!!!) Trevor is doing great, and is off the vent.
Looking forward A LOT to this weekend. Louz is staying 'till Tuesday morning, so it's going to be 3 days of FUN!!! Also having supper at Dr's house on Sat evening, with his family, Peter and Aviva. Looking forward to that a lot too! Then Louz can meet my life-savers! My dad is taking the camera with him for the weekend (has to take work-related pics), so I'll be upgrading my technology skills by taking pics on my phone and getting them on the blog. Hope it works!!
Oh, and the kitty pics are because I miss them so much and don't know when I'll be seeing them again, as I won't be going to PE anytime soon. Note to my medical people: the cats are not sleeping on MY bed. It's my sister's bed.

Hi Alice
I'm sure you'll land the job with ODF. You are perfect for it!
However, why not develop a plan B at the same time?
Medical Representation is a great career, trust me I know. Two of the Anti-Rejection drugs you take are made by Pfizer and Roche. If you by-passed the formal routine of conventional interviews (something I'm sure you could turn your hand to), you could get into companies like these quite easily. Imagine a career bringing Specialist Doctors up-to-speed with the latest in anti-rejection medicines? Being a BLSLT patient and anti-rejection drug user yourself, your credibility is at a whole new level. Either of these top companies would more than likely encourage you to take an active roll with the ODF at the same time, and you'd be required to arrange doctor meetings with presentations around the country/region, where doctors like PGW can enlighten the mob out there......

Well, I'm medical and I reckon that the topical application of cats (including on beds) is good for mental health :-) In fact I wish I had some...
