My pft's are really stable and I am so very grateful. It's interesting though when I got looking at the print out of my PFT it says 89% FEV1 but at I KNOW that up at clinic they were 90%. Maybe the computer printed this one cuz my FVC was slightly higher or something. haha I won't complain about these numbers. When I was in Phoenix they were a little higher but elevation, climate and allergies I think play a part in all of it.
This one is from 2003 which is almost EXACTLY 4 years before my transplant. I noticed my FEV1 was only 30%. . .that's low enough to have been evaluated and listed for a transplant, however in 2003 I was working FULL TIME at Wall2Wall Flooring and working out 5 days a week. I wasn't on oxygen (although I might have needed it) and I was still performing with the Blackfoot Community Theater. I look at all the things I was doing at that point in my life and I see my lung function and I honestly wonder how the heck I did it!! I was at able to keep up with every "healthy" person in my life with only 30% lung capacity compared to their 100%. SO in perspective I was capable of working over 300% more than them. Most people can say they give 110%. . .well I gave 300%. Hahaha! Just interesting to reflect on what life WAS then compared to how life is today.
