Week One

And so it begins...

Things are going so well that I only have great news. I can not believe it has already been three weeks. 

I had my first clinic appointment this past Wednesday. I had a bronc last week with great results. I found out I am rejection free! Everything came back negative (good thing!) and I had my first PFT (Pulmonary Function Test). My lung function is now three times what it was before the transplant. (0.3 L --> 1.3 L) The team said it will continue to grow as I recover and do my physiotherapy. So exciting!  

I started my rehabilitation this week and I feel so well. The first day back, I walked on the treadmill for 30 minutes without stopping and I was able to talk while walking. That was a big deal for me. I woke up with insane knee pain in the middle of the night given the fact that I hadn't walked like that in a few months. My routine was modified and I was pain free within a day.

I am feeling much better now and as always am so grateful to my donor family.

Love you ALL lung time,
