Lots have or will happen this month:
What has happened:
I made it through Thanksgiving and Christmas festivities without being hospitalized or needing IV antibiotics.
I attended 5 Christmas gatherings in 5 consecutive days without becoming extremely sick or exhausted.
I went to stores to do my shopping instead of doing it 100% online like past years.
I had my nine month anniversary of my new lungs.
Went to transplant clinic and don't need to go back for 3 months.
I ran/jogged my first mile post transplant. Then did it 2 other times.
Made Christmas dinner for my husband.
Put up my Christmas tree all by myself.
First time shoveling the deck and stairs with new lungs. No cough or shortness of breath.
First time snow shoeing.
Took the step to never have my own children. Yes, my surgery I had was a tubal ligation.
