Tomorrow: Judgement Day!

Tomorrow it's the day I've been waiting for since 23 Aug... when I did my last lung function test... I've had 10 sessions of ECP (photopheresis) now and the Dr will decide if I should have another 10 (if it's working), or if we're gonna change treatment plan after the 12 approved sessions (which I doubt). So badly want lung function to be up... even if it's just a little bit. I've had a really tough few weeks and I want to know it was worth it. This week was the worst in terms of month-end at work clashing with Dr appointment and last week's ECP plus the blood clot. I had to see a vascular surgeon on Monday about the clot and now have to take warfarin tablets for a year as well. Luckily the Clexane injections finish tomorrow because they're really unpleasant! Cold is much better so hopefully that won't affect lung function.

On a more positive note, I joined a cell-group at church... some young working adults supporting each other and to share spiritual stuff and stories with.... I attended it for the first time last night and it was really great. So that's exciting.

Please pray tomorrow goes well!!!! I need some good news healthwise for a change!!!!
