I thought these holidays would take me out. I had 3 days in a row at the hospital this week & will next week. But I did ok. I can do a bit more each day.
I wrote this poem a few months ago. It just came to me in the night during a tough night during the wait. I even think it might have been a few days after my first dry run in July.
I completed my first week of post transplant rehab. I did a mile on the treadmill in about 25 minutes which I wasn’t sure I’d be moving at that great a clip so soon. So that was a pleasant surprise.
Just a short entry for those who have been following my blog but haven’t heard. I received my double lung transplant on December 2nd. I was released from the hospital on December 13th.
I am quiet because I’m adjusting to new meds & new routines & I tire easily. I had my first outpatient rehab session Thursday the 15th to get tested & baselines for starting next week.
One of my favorite vices is coffee.
We have a Keurig in our house but we use the single serve cups with grounds & made that switch recently for a number of reasons.
I’ve said before I’m an overstuffed kid. But I really have a soft spot for companies & nonprofits that raise transplant awareness through toys.
