Needless to say, this visit was a milestone for me. Chris and I survived the last few difficult years, I survived another transplant, I can hike and do fun boat rides again, my lungs are amazing again. Our life is not spend WAITING anymore. We can just BE and enjoy life.
The one day we did the full Blue Duiker Trial and more... and I climbed the equivalent of 100 flight of stairs! I was sooooo proud of the lungs! My left knee and right calf muscle suffered for it, but that's their problem LOL!
We also did a trip on boat into the sea, as well as up the Storms River. It was SO MUCH FUN! Especially the sea part. You shoot up into the air with every wave, and really use your legs when crashing down again. It almost feels like flying, with the wind in your hair, the sea's spray in your face, and doing a lot of air-time with the rubber-duck. The most fun I've had with the latest lungs so far. I'm a super lucky and fortunate girl right now, and I really hope my donor is able to look down on me and see what he/she has given me. I have my life back (again). Overflowing with gratefulness.
