Blogging from my favourite hospitalbed...

YES, I've been back in hosp for the first time after my TRANSPLANT, which will be excactly 2 years next Friday the 22nd. Don't worry IT'S NOT THE LUNGS!!!

I woke up on Monday morning feeling feverish. 38 degrees. Also felt very weak, so decided to come in to see my Doc. Vomiting etc also followed, and by the time I saw the Dr temp was over 39 degrees. Had x-rays done as well but they showed nothing (ie they were nice and pretty) So I was admitted and started on IVs :-( All my regular blood tests came back normal, so they continued testing for other things, everything negative. My fever broke yesterday, and by last night they took the drip out, yay! Did lung functions today, FEV1% 101%! YAY!!! Even though I knew there was nothing wrong with the lungs, being in hosp after lung transplant somehow makes you anxious, becuase your brain's playing tricks on you. But NUMBERS DON'T LIE!!!Hopefully going home later today...

So I'm in my same room I was in after tx 2 years ago, which is quite strange in a way. The best thing that's ever happened to my body took place here (me and these wonderful new breathers discovering one another), and most awesome things HAVE happened in the past 2 years since last laying here. I've been so blessed for this to be my first hospitalisation post tx, and not even lung-related. Hopefully another 2 years go by before the next hospitalision (and also not lung related!).

PS It was also very good having a fiance supporting me through this little ordeal, makes things much nicer :-)
