My Double Lung Transplant

Ok, Ok

I know I've been absent. And I won't lie, I don't have a legit reason. I've had nothing interesting to post about and when I have thought of something worth posting about, I've just been too lazy to do so.

Currently I am stuffing my face with Smarties and looking at pics of a fellow tx'ers tx. He had it not even 2 weeks ago and is already out! Unfortunately for the morbily minded like myself, the pics aren't gorey, but you can't have it all eh?

Sometimes the best pics are the before and after lung shots. The old lungs vs the new. Sometimes it's nice to see really horribly diseased, bloody disfigured lungs, compared to healthy, pink, sturdy lungs. I used to actually think that being sick was all in my head, even near the end when I was coughing shit up that was the colour and consistency of flourescent green Gak. Then I breathed easily with new lungs and realized, "Ok. I wasn't crazy".

Megs had the best tx pics, b/c she had pics of herself cranked right open during surgery, and pics of her old lungs splattered in a dish. Her old lungs actually flaked apart b/c they had to be scraped from her chest cavity. Those kinda pics make you want to grab a snack so you can enjoy the show.


I had my final exam on Monday. So far, that's all I know.

And that's pretty much it. I've been pretty boring lately, and I apologize.
