My Double Lung Transplant

What's the best way to celebrate an awesome clinic appointment?


Yup. Cheese. You can't go wrong with cheese. It's fun, colourful, goes with most things, tastes great, and most importantly, it's awesome.

My PFTs yesterday came out at a whopping 62%! That's 41% higher than when I got my tx! HOLY FRIG PEOPLE! Start your cheese eating now! My x-ray today looked fab: lungs still getting clearer, mysterious 'airpocket' is thankfully resolving itself (eat second peice of cheese slice, here), blood work is perfect (consume 3rd slice of cheese if you please), and probably most exciting of all: SOME OF MY MEDS HAVE GONE DOWN! I went down on Imuran and most happily, down on again on prednisone (consume entire block of cheese starting now). I started off after tx at 25mgs of pred in the morning. This past Tues it got knocked down to 20mgs a day, and today at clinic (since my bronch showed NO rejection! Praise God!) it has gone down further still, to 17.5 mgs! WEEEEEEE!!! What i have done to deserve being treated so well post-tx, I do not know, but I am thankful and make note of every wonderful thing that comes my way!!!

So i am home now, out of TO until Monday evening. Doing laundry, reading, chatting on MSN. It's pissing rain outside but I wouldn't have it any other way. Well, if it wasn't raining i'd prob be out powerwalking and knocking small children over but that will have to wait another day. The sunshine brings out the best in me.

I will eat cheese for you.

Cheese is fantastic! I actually started a posh cheese collection in my fridge at St. Mikes a few months ago... you gotta do what you gotta do.
