9 MONTHS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

9 Months ago at exactly this time I was under the knife.... The most important moment of my life thusfar, obviously. I've also realised that 9 months is a pretty long time.... can't believe people are pregnant for that long!!!!!! It feels like a mini-lifetime... Making a list of everything I've done in the past 9 months would be pointless... but needless to say (and you just have to read this blog for confirmation), it's been EVERYTHING... the most important being BREATHING.


My week's been busy as usual thusfar... went for lungfunctions on Monday, and saw Paul (Dr) yesterday. FEV1 was 97%, FeNO 15, bloods all good... blood pressure just a bit high (OK very high), but seriously... who's wouldn't be after working for 9.5 hours, being stuck in traffic for 30mins before the actual appointment, almost being late... having someone (read Chris) go with me to the Dr... so yes... I'm supposed to 'watch' my BP... at least we went out for burgers afterwards, so I'm sure that lowered my BP!


Going to church cell tonight, gym after work tomorrow, and on Friday we're having supper at Paul and Jenny's place... after which another glorious weekend will follow... including the WORLD'S BIGGEST WALK!!!!!!!!


So that's it for now... I'm extremely thankfull for my lungs, and thank God for this second life every day.... and pray for my donor's family...




P.S. I've included some more Jacaranda pics.... just because I'm obsessed with taking pis of them from my car when stuck in traffic!!!
