So Nelson Mandela is 90 today!!!! Everywhere you look/go/listen you just hear people wishing him happy birthday and talking about it. Even at the hosp there were black and white balloons (mmm... interesting choice of colour...) everywhere! Took a pic from my phone!! There was even a huge poster on the wall in the main passage where you could write him a message... I didn't bother, because it's not like he's going to read all of it!!!
So here are my pretty new CT scan pics... and
then the old one just for comparison... (I'm sure I don't need to tell you which is which...) The fine white lines are blood vessels, and the 1/2 biggish 'holes' are my trachea and stuff. Apparently they look fine and there's nothing to worry about and I can relax. No rejection or anything. FEV1% was 92% today. So I'm officially not worrying anymore, and can breathe again. Pun intended. FeNO ( I THINK it stands for Forced expiratory Nitric Oxide) was 18 again. Still want that a bit lower.
A guy I know and have been chatting with over the web now and again, Matt Todd, got lungs during the night!!! SOOO excited for him!! Visit his Caringbridge site at http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/matthewtodd. Seems like he's doing great!! Gina is still struggling with pneumonia, and isn't doing too well... I REALLY hope she pulls through, no-one deserves it more than her.
Did some hard gymming late this afternoon, and watching a dvd with my dad tonight. The only plans I've got for the weekend so far is going to the Children's Teatre to see Cinderella with Aerin and Jenny. Looking forward to it a lot, as it was my favourite fairytale as a child. Even my imaginery friend's (yes I had one...) name was Aspoestertjie, which is the Afrikaans version of the name Cinderella!!! And going to church on Sunday and having coffee with a guy from church afterwards. So should be fun. Enjoy yours!!
