My Double Lung Transplant

The Descent

As I descend down from my cloud of wellness, I realize that I should be utterly thankful to have had 2 full days of feeling somewhat normal. My lungs didn’t really bother me at all, and in some bizarre way, it was somewhat frightening because I am not used to feeling this way for extended periods of time. And I’m proud of the fact that I got myself out of the house and made use of this feeling of goodness.

As you know on Friday I went to a drag show, yesterday night I went over to Jess’s house and today we did some real damage at the mall. As luck would have it, I found a $30 gift card yesterday that still had its full amount on it and I went with Jess today and dutifully spent it all and I feel wonderful. I got a spring jacket and a cute tank top and as it stands, all is well! I cannot wait until feeling like this is an all-the-time kinda thing!!!!!!

Jess was ordered prior to to keep me out of Chapters. I was forbidden by myself and by her from entering the store, but good ole me manipulated her into allowing me temporary access into the haven so in we went…

And then I found it. I just had to sneak over the computer and search for the new book I want, Galway Bay. I found it, and went over to its location, and there it was, on the unreachable top shelf shining in all its lovely book glory. I stepped on the bottom shelf and flicked the cover and waited for the precious gem to fall into my greedy hands.

That’s when I saw the price, $30. More than I can afford at the moment. Logic took over and I put it down after much debate, and decided to wait for Easter (coz I always get chapters cards, weeeeeeeeeee!)

So yes, this has been my weekend. Eventful, but not overly exciting. I haven’t had a good weekend in a looooooooooooong time so I’m really happy that I got out and did stuff. I am starting to feel like my usual crap-lung self so I am coming down from my cloud of wellness and sinking back into usual life. It’s ok though, this is just want I needed! YAY!

Tomorrow I am off to TO for clinic and will let you all know how it goes.

Before i go, here's a special (recent) picture of the child, Zoey.
