Check-up today and weekend

Had lungfunctions and check-up again today. Lungfunction up a little bit (to like 87%), bloods were fine except the levels for my new tablet Certican is too low so that has been increased. Hopefully then when Certican levels are where they should be lungfunction will go up more. Have to go back in 4 weeks time, so until then it's more Certican and carry on gymming I guess.

This weekend was really great, Friday night our friends who had the twins, Kelvin and Bianca, had a little dinner-party/braai/BBQ at their place. Sat we went to Potchefstroom, a small town about 90 mins out of Joburg, for a wedding. Very nice! We stayed with my good friend Louzanne's parents so it was such a treat. Sunday I had coffee with Aviva and a fellow lung recipient Janine, and of course GYM!

In exactly 1 month's time it's HOLIDAY time, and on 20 March we're driving down to PE! Sooooo much still has to happen before then, but at least it's something to work towards! The piccie of me and Chris below was taken at the wedding on Sat, and the sunset was tonight on the way back from the hosp.

Great weekend

Had a really great weekend, went for a run, gymmed, attended a picnic, went to a Gauteng Transplant Sports Assoc meeting, had parents over for a braai, went to a birthday breakfast, did some shopping and visited our friends and their twin babies! Love busy weekends!

So since Wednesday I've been taking the new anti-rejection med called Certican. On Sat next weekend I have to go for bloods to measure the new levels and next week Wednesday the 20th is lungfunction and check-up again. Eeeeekkkkk so nervous. Until then it's GYM GYM GYM...

copy cats... our babies being cute

The verdict

So check-up was OK yesterday I guess. Final biopsy result showed no rejection or infection. So the tests gave no answers and corresponds to the fact that I'm feeling fine. Lung function was just under 85% yesterday which means a 10% drop in total. The only explanation I could get was that "sometimes lung function fluctuates and we'll keep an eye on it". My meds are changing next week though as soon as I've sorted it with the pharmacy and then I have to go for another check-up in 2 weeks time (from date of changing the meds). Until then I'll just carry on as normal and GYM/run/walk A LOT. Not much else I can do ... And praying I get back in the 90%'s!!!
