A double lung transplant.
I remember when those words first entered my world.
Who knew that it would be such an incredible experience. Aside from saving my life, it's given me an amazing bond with a lot of fabulous people and allowed me to connect with so many through here. From family to friends to strangers...unbelievable. I have no idea how to express my gratitude and love for all of you.
I wouldn't have had half the strength these last 9 months if it weren't for all of you.
My new chunkers and I are eternally thankful.
(It's true, they told me.)
The last few weeks have been busier than normal and I haven't had time to update as much as I'd have liked. I have lots to share and will get to it all at some point.
Today marks 3 months with my new chunkers!!!
I've hit a few bumps on the recovery highway, but it's nothing a little pavement (or hardcore meds) won't fix. I'm feeling unstoppable. I have crazy cool lung function and can take a deep breath.
I can laugh and dance and have all kinds of Squeegee fun without coughing and with ease.
Well except I seem to have a weird laugh since transplant, as in barely a sound comes out (except a squeak here and there), perhaps my donor was the silent type?
I can't wait to go home to Brad and the boys. I can't wait to see my friends and family. I can't wait to see as much of you as possible (if you don't live in NS just hop on a plane...go ahead just get a ticket).
|The G-man's tired from all that packing|
Thankfully, Bonnie helped me clean and pack up before she left. We got most of it done, but let me explain. I came here with 4 suitcases. I'm leaving with 4 suitcases and a boatload of other junk. Also very thankful I opted to drive home. The boatload would never have fit.
Bonnie flew home today and dad has almost landed here. Road trip with the papa! I freaked out the other day about the drive home - for only one reason. I realized I didn't have a car charger for my phone. That's just not cool.
I ran out and got one so I can keep in touch with everyone and blog from the road.
I've been so excited. Running on adrenaline. Not sleeping. I could likely be a cast member on The Walking Dead as I feel like a zombie.
I'm actually procrastinating right now, so I should get back at it. Unless someone wants to come over and help me?
