Hiccups

There has been many hiccups along the way. In January we moved to an acreage. Well my stepdad, Mike moved us to the acreage as my mom and I were in Edmonton. Its a beautiful house, but when we came home there was still lots of unpacking and organizing to do. Thank god for my mom who did everything and was a huge help. I was want to give a huge shout out to my sister who came over before I got to come home and completely organized my room and had it right ready for me! THANKS SISTER!

 After I got home it took me a while to adjust to my new life. I was still a little bit weak. Oh I forgot to add that when I had a routine bronch on March 6 they found that I had influenza A, which was not good and my immune system is so compromised. I was immediately started on Tamiflu for 5 days. My lung function also plummeted during this time. I was up to 56% and I dropped into the 40's. I thought I was over the flu after a few weeks but apparently I was not. I ended back in hospital April 23-29 because I was feeling so awful and my lung function continued to drop into the 30's. I had had a nasal swab done a week before this and they again found that I still had the flu. I was also swollen up like a marshmallow. They figured I had about 5kg of extra fluid on me. I was once again put on Tamiflu for 2 weeks and Lasix to get rid of the fluid. When I got discharged I was feeling better and ready to go home and get in a new routine.

A routine that consists of pills, iv med, breakfast, rest, lunch, exercises, rest, supper, rest, pills, iv med, and then bed. It sounds worse than it is though. I still get out with my mom and go shopping and such.

Here are a few pictures of us getting out and having a good time!

Relaxing on my aunts couch, which is where we stayed when I was discharged

Mini golfing at West Edmonton Mall. Something I couldn't do before! And now I'm a champ!!
