Results and weekend

The weekend in Dullstroom was nice, good distraction. Weather and comany was great. We were 11 adults and 2 kids in a big farmhouse. Saturday was also 5 years 5 months with the new lungs. All in all a good weekend.

Biopsy didn't show much, slight inflamation, nothing else obviously wrong. Not changing meds, will go for lungfunctions again in the next 2/3 weeks or so. Hopefully it goes well, went back to gym yesterday and didn't go too badly. Need to focus on the Games, getting SO close :-/

Biopsy done

Biopsy went well, am home at least. Now to wait and see if it deliveres any results/usefull info. Will hopefully know by Monday, but until then Chris and I will be off to Dullstroom with friends for a much-needed weekend of relaxing. And hopefully Monday brings some answers (although I doubt it :-(

Biopsy again :-(

Lungfunction down ... again. Only blew FEV1% of 75% yesterday. Didn't even go for proper check-up, just wanted to chat to Dr about changing some meds, and got this nasty suprise. Two weeks ago it was 82%. A year ago it was 100% :-( No answers as to why it dropped apart from possible some reflux damage but that was fixed months ago. Having biopsy tomorrow, HOPING this time it will have some answers. And that this won't affect my participation in the Games. Not happy :-(

survived the week

I survived a pretty crap week... work was pretty insane, didn't gym/play squash enough, didn't sleep enough, probably didn't eat enough, stressed too much, BLEH. Thanks goodness month-end is pretty much over. Hopefully normality will return this week.

So far the weekend has been the best medicine to cure the bad week. Chris bought me my favourite snacks, we played squash, did a little bit of shopping, read, watched TV... It's my mom's birthday on Monday so they are having lunch with us tomorrow. AND NEXT WEEKEND MY SISTER AND PIERRE ARE HERE, YAY!!!!

It's officially winter... glad it's not a year ago... 1 Jun 2012 was the first time ever I was admitted for rejection. Won't forget that date anytime soon. Check-up on Thursday went well. X-ray and all bloods were normal and lung function same as last time. Went out for lunch today and a nice walk at Emmarentia Dam. This week going to be crazy busy at work with month-end... but will hopefully get to the gym more than I did last week.
