I'M IN THE OPRAH MAGAZINE!!!!!!!!

So I FINALLY managed to get hold of the July issue of the O Mag!!! For the past 10 days or so, every time I enter a shop, I would first check to see if it's out yet. I think it's a very good article, and I'm very pleased with it. Even the picture is quite nice! Although I'm wearing a lot more make-up than I normally would, lol! And even Aviva can say she's been in the O Mag now!!

Last night Aviva came over for supper, and we went to see a movie first.... Forgetting Sarah Marshall... it's pretty crude (which we didn't expect), but it did have it's funny moments. So all in all it was a great evening.

I was paging through my diary the other night, and came across something that I had written on the 25th of June 2007. It was obviously written in Afrikaans, but will translate as best I can:
"It will be so great if my dad gets the job in Joburg, and I can stay with him after transplant. Can't stop day-dreaming about the first time I come back to PE for a visit after transplant. How awesome will it be if everyone sees me with pink lips and nails, for the first time in years. And I'll be fatter, and strong, and not all weak and coughing my lungs out all the time. And I'll be able to keep up with everyone, and be able to help around the house and not look like the lazy one."

So now it's SOOOO COOL to realise that everything I had written had in fact come true. My first visit home was everything I had hoped it would be, and more. I really am SO blessed.


Went for bloods this morning, and will get the results tomorrow. Hopefully my Prograf levels are up!!! And my parents are leaving for Italy tomorrow as well!!! So it's going to be just me and Chris for 2 weeks...yay!!!!! (although please don't get the idea I don't love them!!! just nice to be alone sometimes!!)

Alice...is the article in the US version of the magazine, or just the ZA version?

Alice said...

Nate... as far as I know it's only the ZA edition, unfortunately! You should get Trich in the US edition!! Or... even better... get Oprah to invite all of us lung tx'ers on her show...
