My Double Lung Transplant

Back to school, back to school.....

Fucking fuck fuck FUCK FUCK FUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok so it's not too bad just yet. I have had 3 of my 4 classes today and so far so good. This entry cannot be long as I am writing from the libs on campus and have to meet Katey at 2:30. I am sorry but i cannot allot my time properly between the both of you.

First things first: I GOT MY NEW BUS PASS. Yippee.

Secondly; the doctors appt yesterday: Grand, wonderful, specacular, marvelous, amazing. My doc said my bone scan showed me to be NORMAL, the results from my last sputum samples were NORMAL, and the results from the sleep lab were NORMAL. As well, she told me she went to a transplant convention type thingy in TO and mentioned me (moi? wow i'm honoured!) and the docs there said considering my case (what with no immunity and all) I should have a very successful transplant and post transplant life! Generally, my doctor seems really excited so that makes me happy! Who knew new organs made people happy but they do i tell you!

BUT - she said when i go for my consult in 15 days, despite being an 'excellent candidate' they MAY tell me i am TOO HEALTHY, which i honestly hope isn't the case. I have heard of people with higher PFTs and FEV1s than me(the amount of air you can forcefully breathe out in 1 second) and they got listed! I feel passionately that i DO get listed b/c all this walking around campus shit today has me winded.

AND YES I WORE MY O2 TO SCHOOL AND ON THE BUS!!!!!!! Can i get some applause please and thank you? THANK YOU!!!! I know, i am happy but it is definately different. People don't really look at you - but at the same time who knows if they have noticed at all anyway?

Oh school....i hate to say it but i am glad to be back.
