September 29th

I finally have a date (Sept. 29th) for my 2-3 day hospital stay at Brigham & Woman's for the testing for my lung transplant evaluation. I am so excited.

I also want to say how grateful to all the people that are here for me during all of this. I am humble by all of you and couldn't do this with out you! I love you all!

Now the fundraising can officially begin!

Life is Good

I had a relaxing day yesterday. I went up to my camp this weekend and tried to chill. Saturday was a pretty stressful day so I need a day of rest. I have to keep reminding my husband that camp is a place for both of us to relax. I cannot wait to go back up to camp this weekend.

Going to camp seems to be good for my health. Even though I relax, I am always moving. I walk to the restaurant that is about 1/4 mile down the road, I go swimming, I ride my bike and am constantly throwing the ball for my dog. I cough a ton of junk up. Health wise, I feel the best I have felt in over a year and half. Like the title says "Life is good!"

CF Appointment

Yesterday was a really good day. My MRI showed no nerve damage in my back or neck. We are thinking that I either pulled a muscle in my chest or I have a plug in my lung. My FEV1 are stable and my weight is great. I actually feel really good. Now I just need to start exercising. I plan on going for a walk with my sister tonight. I also bought an inversion table to use while I am doing my vest. This way I can tip upside down to help the mucus move. I hope it helps. My Doctor gave me a great compliment. He said that I have worked hard in the last year to become healthy again and that all my hard work is paying off. In November I weighed 96 pounds and yesterday I was 112. What a difference 16 pounds make.

The weather here in Maine is finally feeling like summer. The sun is shining. Isn't that enough to make anyone happy? For those who don't know me I love the sun. I even have a sun tattoo on my back. Life is great right now. I am working from home in the sun!

Missing my friends

This past weekend was great! I got to see my girls: Diana, Andrea and Kim. It was so nice to be surround by close friends. I also got to spend some time with just my dad which doesn't happen very often. I miss them all already and can't wait to see everyone again!

Spending time with those close to my heart has made me miss a lot of my friends from the past. I am trying to reconnect with them but life is so hectic for everyone that its a challenge. I really miss Kellie, Aimee, Tracy(from class of 1994), Amy and Angela(from class of 1998). I hope I get to see them soon.

I love you all and miss you a bunch!

2 weeks

It has been 2 weeks since my first visit to B&W. I still haven't heard anything. I know that a lot of the Doctors were on vacation this past week. I would just like to know if they plan on taking me.

I have to keep reminding myself that good things happen to those who wait!
