My Double Lung Transplant

Wednesday, February 11, 2009


For those of you wondering what this big mysterious test that I had coming up that was weighing down on me was, it was my driving test, my G test, my full liscence test. And i can proudly proclaim from the top of a mountain (if i felt the need to climb a mountain and scream that is), that I GOT MY G! I AM FULLY LISCENCED!!!!!!!!! WOO HOO!

I am so excited! Words cannot describe the sense of elation that I feel. I was so nervous for this for some strange reason. It's not like a uni exam or a medical test, where you go, do it, get it over with, and it doens't really affect you afterwards in any way, shape or form; it's driving, and i'm pretty much fucked if i haven't got a liscence. I hate being dependent on people, so i'm uber stoked that I no longer need to take any more liscence tests until I am 80 or unless by some bizarre chance Ontario changes their driving liscencing laws.


I am feeling a little better. Like a diligent little child I held to my promise and rang up my co-ordinator today. I told her i was feeling slightly better but still really out of breath, and that i had felt really really sick and was unsure as to whether or not i was really sick with some other horrible affliction or if it was the effects of being on so many meds at once. She said that the codeine in the Tylenol 2 is the most common thing that makes people feel like they're going to puke their guts out all over the place ( i didn't mention that i made me feel like i had epilepsy though...), and that could potentially be the culprit that has made me feel like such shit. She then left it up to me as to whether or not i'd pop in for clinic on Mon and i said "if you think that I should..." and i said "ok i will", but then she remembered Monday is "Family Day" and everything is closed so....She said that if i still feel really short of breath and like Cipro isn't doing it's job, to ring up my respirologist and see her ASAP which I think i most likely will do.

IV meds next? Most likely.

Other than that i have been good. I am going to see the new Friday the 13th movie on Friday the 13th and will by all accounts scream my head off with Krystal and Jess and end up making a spectacle of myself.

I must say that i find it ironic that they place such a scary emphasis on Friday the 13th and yet the very next day it's Valentine's Day and that somehow makes it all better.....
