Great weekend

Had a great weekend... one of my best friends ever, who I've known since age 6 or so, came to visit!! On Friday eve we went to see a stand up comedy show, yesterday we went out for a late brunch and some great shopping and yesterday eve we had friends over supper. This morning we had another girls' brunch and in the afternoon tea with my parents. So really awesome 2 days.

This week is quite a medical one again. Lung function on Tuesday (post being sick) and photopheresis on Thursday. Hopefully all goes well.

So on Monday when I was bored... I played some piano again for the first time in years. It went fairly well and made me realise how pretty this heirloom actually is. It was my great-grandmother's instrument and have to find out exactly where she got it from! So far Google hasn't been of any help but will carry on searching!

Went back to work today too and it was fine. Maybe Thursday gym...

Short hospital stay - mystery virus

So I ended up being admitted on Wednesday eve. Luckily only spent 2 nights in hosp and Dr also used the opportunity to give me an iron drip as haemoglobin always a bit low anyways.... In the end the virus I had/am recovering from is still a mystery. Nasal swab and x-ray was clear, nothing alarming in the bloods... Have still been feeling pretty rotten until this morning, when I woke up without a low grade fever for the first time in a week, yay! So tomorrow back to work! And supposed to go see Dr next week, along with photo again.

Weekend, check-up and feeling meh

Had a great weekend... supper at my friend Andrew's place on Friday eve, and on Sat we swam at his place and had a braai (BBQ). Had supper with parents on Sunday and went to church. So all in all a great weekend.

Check up and lung functions went great on Monday. Lung function stable and bloods/x-rays were normal. Yesterday's photo was also fine. The plan seems to be that from April onwards I will be going once a month. However since Monday eve I have been feeling nauseous and slightly feverish. Bloods were all fine when they tested it yesterday but still not feeling great. Left work early today and trying to relax now. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be better! Or at least worse so that I can do something about it instead if being in sick-limbo like this!

The sunrise pic below I took on my way to work this morning!

Not much news...

Not much news since the 6 year lungaversary! This week I'm pretty much focussed on work... month-end and all... Bleh. Did manage to go to gym today though so that's great. Had to postpone the next photo treatment to next week to fit in with work, and then also having lung check-up on Monday. Hopefully no cancellations or changes in schedule!!

Had a quiet weekend, didn't do much but did a lot of gardening... muscles ALL OVER are SORE. So these plants getter grow!!! As you can see the kitty also found it tiring!
