Trying to post this from my phone... Lung func test didnt go as planned yesterday and I was admitted for treatment (steroids for 3 days). My Dr is assuming it's rejection but will have biopsy in the week.
Really frustrating as I feel so well at the moment. Oh well not much I can do apart from wait it out :-( Will update if anything changes. What crappy timing just after I celebrated 5 yrs.

Unfortunately this week (apart from last night) hasn't been too great :-( On Monday my check-up was rather disappointing. We were late (Chris came with me) and I literally ran to the Drs-rooms and into the lung function machine. I only blew 85% FEV1% :-( That's like 10% less than the last time in Oct... I really feel great though (and all bloods and x-rays were fine) so Dr said I should come back on Friday to try again. It may be a technical issue or something to do with my Nissen operation or a bad day or whatever. Killed myself at gym today and can't feel any difference to previously so hoping for a good result on Friday.... not a geat week for my blood pressure! Work has been crazy too and I didn't rest much last weekend as I was in Durban for a WTG 2013 meeting. Last night was great at least... we went out with my mom and dad to Wombles, which has the BEST STEAK in Joburg. Really fantastic place with super service. Definitely only for special occasions though!
At least my leave for the end of March has been approved to that's a nice break to look forward to, we're going down to PE for a wedding and also to "our" honeymoon place, Storms River Mouth. Going to be a much needed break!
Wish me luck for Friday....
