My Double Lung Transplant

Tuesday, September 1, 2009

And the winner is...

Versed, for making me vomit up my peanut butter and jam crackers. And my intuition, for reacting to the bronch exactly how i thought i would!

My issue is that i keep thinking about how that stupid mouth swish tastes, and my pee smelled like versed, and 5 and a half hours later, up came everything, but i feel a lot better! I just hate how i mentally psyche myself out by reminding myself of how awful these drugs are. Once they are completely out of my system do i feel better. I came home and napped for 45 minutes, and may nap again. No galavanting about the city today for mum and me I don't think...I want to, but with the lungs healing, i don't want to risk anything floating inside the fresh wounds and god forbid, festering.

Oh well.

Bronch went well. Doc said everything looks great! Coughed up some blood right afterwards which i know is normal and the nurse encouraged me not to cough, to let it settle, and that when i cough later on I may bring up some dried blood and maybe clots but clots are better than fresh as it means the lung biopsy spots are healing. So over all, things are good! Not too much pain, but i took 2 T2's to keep my comfortable so i'm not a miserable bitch.

Some steristrips are starting to come off. I really want my staples out, as they are starting to bother me. There is one spot on the side of my right boob that has 2 staples and it's where the steristrip fell off -willingly!- and it looks great! Healing nicely! The feeling in my armpit is coming back as well.

I think that's it. Today is gonna be a pretty chill day. All I have tomorrow is physio at 9am and then I don't know what mum and I will do. I'd like to go exploring...hopefully outside of Queen's street!!!
