This was our first Christmas spending it at home since my transplant and both Bryan and I were excited, however I knew there was some risk involved due to exposure to so many people during winter in Idaho. Unfortunately I was right & I ended up catching the bug that is goin around. I feel terrible and my head along with my upper chest hurts. My cough is not productive and sudafed & Tylenol seem to make me feel okay and keeps my fever down. It's crazy how there is always a trade off...time with family is awesome but it does come with risk of infection. This is the exact reason we sorta become "reclusive" in the winter when it's cold &flu season. I got right on top of this though and started taking inhaled ceftaz which should keep my lungs protected (I hope).
For the good news now!!! My husband got me an iPad which I love!! My sister gave me a super cute pink case for it. I got Bryan a darth vader light saber lamp to match his collection of Star Wars stuff. I also got a hot chocolate maker....awesome....and I got gift cards to the movie theatre, so once I'm feeling better I'm going to watch les mis :)
I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!
I have a cf/transplant friend who just celebrated her 2year transplantiversary....but is also fighting with chronic rejection. She was able to be home with her family for Christmas but is now returning to Pittsburgh to get treatment. Her fev1 is down to 19%. PLEASE keep her in your prayers....I can only imagine how hard it is for her physically and emotionally. Thank you.
