Okay, my final post for today and I think I am all caught up. We drove to Pittsburgh last Sunday and had appointments on Monday and a Bronch on Tuesday. My appointments went GREAT! I got a new record on my Pulmonary Function Tests, my FEV1 was 109%, I was SUPER excited! I got to see Dr. Pilewski which is always a treat, what a sweet man he is!
I also had an opportunity to meet a friend that I met on this blog, Crystal, who is preparing for transplant. We caught her before her transplant orientation. It was great to give her a hug and reassure her that things will get better.
While I was there I popped into the orientation class and briefly shared my story. It was really neat to tell the people in that room about what they had to look forward to. All of them are in a really scary place right now and I hope I gave them a glimpse of hope.
We also stopped by my pre-transplant coordinator Paul's office. He gives the best hugs! It was awesome to see him, he promised he's send me a picture of the two of us from our visit to share.
My bronch showed NO REJECTION! So it was a successful visit to Pittsburgh for me.
Phew, I am tired. Looking forward to a quiet weekend to relax. My love to you all! Nancy
