Time flys when you have new lungs

I can't believe how much time flys. Days are filled with appointments, working out, pokes and proding. However, all is good and results have been positive. I am in clinic every 2 weeks now but I still work out 3 times a week in Toronto.
I have my 6 week bronch on Tuesday which is always a tx persons dream. Not! but it must be done so fingers crossed.
So where am I now with my new lungs.....living every day to the fullest breathing better every day. I go to bed early but during the day i am busy puttering around the house, doing household chores etc and playing with my little one. Charley has been so amazing through this whole ordeal (however a bit spoiled) I am trying to deal with her not listening and wanting everything she wants because for the last few months that is what she is used to. But its manageable. She says the cutest things like Mommy you look different today, you look like you are all better and fine. Tears come to my eyes as I realize that I must of looked bad before and maybe it scared her a bit. Oh life is strange and glorious.
I am off to physio today and then off for the weekend to enjoy my family friends and this weather we are having.
Oh yeah and we sold our house in 2 days!! so here we come new house in June!
see ya later

  1. It's amazing how well you are doing! I'm so happy for you! I've had two other phriends who've gotten their transplant since you had yours. One was a couple weeks after yours, the other was on Tuesday. They are doing well so far, so I keep praying for all of you!
    Hugs,

  2. Hello Shannon! I'm so happy for you and your family! You are a beacon of hope for all of us. Your little one sounds so incredibly adorable. Take it from a former first grade teacher...a child that sweet has obviously been given lots of love from some pretty great parents.
    Continue taking good care of yourself.
