My Double Lung Transplant

I feel like i'm dying.

No, not in the physical sense. The body is alive and well, but mentally, i feel like i'm dying.

This is normal, of course. I go for my monthly IV next Friday and i always begin feeling like this exactly a week before I need to get it. Having a blood disease sucks. When I need to get it, I just feel lethargic, mentally numb, blah...and yeah, I pretty much just want to lounge on the couch and not be bothered. I just feel unmotivated, low on gas, can`t be bothered.

Like i`m dying.


I made 4 loaves of bread the other day. Multigrain Mama bread to be exact, sent from the Wilderness, delivered to my door, directly into my tummy. It was fabulous, and my next recipe to tackle will be Newfie-land Partridge Berry Bread. Mmmmmmmmmm.

Today, I`m having a huge prednisone fail. I just can`t seem to stop eating. Cheerios, orange, watermelon, 5 oreos, Nature Valley bar, crackers, then spaghetti. All i want is an extra large tea which i shall promptly go get. And maybe a donut since i`m a humungus pig.

What else?

I think that's it, but i'm sure I'll think of something the minute i log out.

Gotta love the prednisone pig-out! Since I have all this nausea, I haven't been able to experience it yet post-tx but I've got the cheeks!

It's hard to imagine going from struggling to gain weight pre-transplant to struggling to control it at a decent weight post. I guess I have lots to look forward to :)
Thanks Bree, you never fail to make me laugh!
