I bundled up and braved the cold so that I could get at least ONE horse ride in while I was home :) It was absolutely worth it! Pixydust is such a dream to ride. So today I was brushing her mane and she decided that the top of my head was a good 'resting place' for her head. She always brings a smile to my soul and I know that days like today are worth everything I went through in my lifetime that made Pixydust possible.
My Grandfather Christensen had his 80th birthday party today so I got to see a lot of my family that I have not seen since before my transplant. I was happy to have been home to celebrate with my grandparents.
THEN tonight my sister and our friends were able to finally fit it our "girls night". We spent hours playing, dancing and munching. Nikkii's Pole offers us hours of fun and an awesome workout!! Tomorrow I may not be able to move due to all the physical activity I got to do today. It is now 3:10am and I am still sketched out on Diet Dew. . . .Ambien here I come.
Bryan will be leaving the Island tomorrow and we'll be together again on Monday. . .I miss having my best friend and I am glad he has had a great time exploring the Dominica. I have enjoyed all the time I have been spending with my family and friends as well :)
Thanksgiving has come and gone. . but everyday in the life of a transplant recipient is a day of 'thanksgiving'. I am thankful I have my life back and thankful for my Donor and her family, my supportive family, a sexy loving husband and of course amazing hospitals and doctors like Pittsburgh.
