California here we come!!!!

So one of my New Years resolutions is HAPPENING!!!!!!! Yesterday we booked our tickets and paid for Visa's to visit Anna and Casey!!!!! We will literally be arriving there today in 3 months' time!!!! I cannot actually put into words how excited I am. I've never been to the US, and exploring a small part of it with Chris, my transplant-twin Anna and her hubby would be a dream come true.


We first met them in person at the 2013 World Transplant Games in Durban where she won like a million medals for swimming. We then saw them in October when they were in Cape Town and spend 4 fabulous days with them. Recently Anna has also been diagnosed with Chronic Rejection too (apparently I "gave" it to her) and had her Nissen Funduplication surgery just over a week ago (I had mine in Nov 2012). So this is added motivation for both of us to stay fit and well. Also excited to see her parents again (we met them at the WTG in Durban as well), they are such lovely people.

Now we can start planning the details.... eeeekkkkkkk!!!!
