2 sleeps...

Then my sis and her hubby get here! Then another sleep before be leave for Mapungubwe and Botswana !!!!!!!!!!! Last time I was in that area was 10 years ago and it was fantastic. Very excited. Not sure what the weather is going to be doing, but think hot days and cold nights are a safe bet. Will start Malaria pills tomorrow night. Already started packing as well. Now just to survive 2 days at work....

Rib paid seems to be basically gone no thank goodness. Let's hope it stays that way... Untill after the trip then :-)

P.S. Have another very very very exciting trip coming up later this year... watch this space!

I've managed to obscurely randomly injure an old scar. No idea how or what I did, but on Monday I started feeling pain where one of my old drainage pipes were when I got my transplant. On Tuesday the pain was worse and by Wednesday quite swollen and a bit red. Thought I'd maybe broken a rib or something so went to the Dr. Of course my Dr would be overseas at the moment (Murphy!) so had to see his partner. Had x-rays done, nothing broken. So don't really know what it is, but gotTrans Act patches for the pain and they seem to be helping. Apparently it might be scar tissue that got hurt or a cracked rib. Who knows, feeling pretty blond.

Only 5 sleeps before it's holiday time :-) Can't wait.

Bad things always happen in 3's...

So this week the CF community lost 3 of it's angels... Judette (28), Dominique (22) and Schamone (19). Dominique and Schamone were both waiting for lungs. It's really terribly sad and could have possibly been prevented if more people were donors. I cannot imagine what their families must be going through :-( Thoughts are with them... really SUCKS

Easter weekend has been quiet. Went to church, did a bit of gardening for the last time before winter. Sorted out some stuff in the house, went to gym, caught up on admin etc. My parents are back from their trip down to my grandparents today so we'll be havng lunch at their place. Also playing squash this afternoon. So all in all a productive weekend I guess.

In 2 weeks and a bit we're setting off on a family holiday to Mapungubwe and Botswana for 6 days! Really starting to get excited for it. Will also be the first time my sis and her husband come along as a "married couple" - going to be great spending some time with them too. Will have to take malaria tablets for our trip just to be on the safe side... luckily it's not a high risk area and won't be summer either.
