Good Monday

So... my lungies are fine! My FVC (forced vital capacity/volume) is 108%, and the FEV1% which was 91% was 95% today. But as the volume increases the FEV1% goes down a bit, because the total volume affects the FEV1%... so it's all good. The FeNO (nitric oxide) value was 19 (20 on Friday), so it would be good if that can still come down a bit more...

Played squash again this afternoon, and was great, even though I lost!!! Didn't play last week, as Craig was sick. The sis and I are watching DVD again tonight, and I HAVE to write an instablog article, because I'm WAY behind with all the visitors I've had!!

The first part of my story has also been released today, so if you haven't registered yet, please do!!!! And may I just add: ALL names used are coincidential!!!!!!

So glad to hear that your lung function is back up! It's funny how even 91% isn't good enough now. I am so desperate to get over 80% just now, and then I know I will just set another goal!

Playing squash? I hope I am half as fit at your stage :-)
