Bumps in the road...

      Well, I just got out of the hospital a couple of days ago and I must say..I don't miss that one bit! lol I can't believe I spent most of my time there pre-transplant. I was pretty miserable. I had to go in because I was having some major flu-like symptoms that just seemed to be getting worse and I was pretty short of breath. That scared me to have to be put on oxygen again..it brought back so many memories that I didn't want to drudge up again! It's very scary how fast I got sick. I was up in the morning and about an hour or two later I was throwing up and I couldn't breathe. My O2 sats had dropped to 85 on room air, and I couldn't even walk very far without losing my breathe completely. It was like I hadn't even had a transplant at all! I know that I had (or have) some sort of virus but they have no idea what it is. They were testing me for CMV, which is a blood virus, but it came back negative. So I'm hoping that they can find out some sort of answers for me. My breathing is much better but I am just so tired for some reason and I haven't been able to do much around the house that I need to get done.
        In the hospital my O2 sats kept dropping in the middle of the night into the 80's but as far as I know that has stopped. I just need to start getting some energy back. They also said that I have some A2 rejection which is still pretty mild, and they pumped me full of steroids for that. I guess I could be tired because of the rejection..but it doesn't seem likely to me. I think I've got something. I've got clinic tomorrow to see how my PFT's are doing..hopefully they are gonna go up so that I know the steroids worked. Here's to NO MORE REJECTION! Wish me luck <3


  1. Good luck tomorrow! Here's to no rejection :)
