I'm Doing Well for a Change!
I'm feeling quite normal these days. I don't know if my lung function is permanently stuck at 1.6L on my FEV1, (for me that's low) but even if it is I'm able to do plenty of stuff. I can climb the stairs without getting winded, I can carry the groceries in without becoming exhausted, and I can make it through the day without a nap. I do still try to nap though, I think it helps replenish my energy. I've been getting dinner on the table for a number of nights now which I know Brad loves. Every day I'm thankful that I'm not in the hospital.
My next doctor appointment is soon and we're praying that the doc will be happy with how things are going even if my PFTs aren't stellar. I don't want to have to go back to the hospital for a LONG time.
We spent Memorial Day weekend in Palm Springs. I was definitely able to tell that the air quality wasn't as good as in San Diego, but it didn't slow me down too much. We lounged around the pool, going in for a dip when it got too hot in the sun. We took a walk to a do-it-yourself frozen yogurt place (apparently they are the latest trend) and we saw the movie Night at the Museum. We ate at a kosher deli that had the biggest pastrami sandwiches we'd ever seen. They were awesome but boy oh boy did we pay for it later. We were all passing the Tums back and forth.
Today Brad and I plan to make our grand re-entry to the gym. It's been quite awhile since either of us has gone, so I'm looking forward to it.
So there you have it. All the great stuff that's been going on that's been keeping me from blogging. :)
It is good to hear that your lack of posting is for a good reason.
