Feeling So Much Better!

I am feeling so much better, back to being a human again! I am finally getting my medications "drawin in" to the right dosage and I am feeling better than I have in years. Helping my grandparenmother out (since she can only use one arm for 2 more months) has really tired me out, so I decided I did not need to use the sleep medication anymore. It has cut my migraines in half! Which just generally helps everything else.
I finally convinced the gastro to move my appointment to today, so I have been holding the food waiting to get the upper endoscopy and biopsy. I am hoping they don't find anything, but I am hoping they find the cause of the nausea and give me a magical pill to cure it that makes everyting better.
I have been doing so much, and I am so excited that I am able to do so much more! I am 99% sure I am getting a road bike for my re-birth day in Nov so I am so excited to get to use that and just generally get to get out and do stuff!
This week I have the TRIO meeting tomorrow, and Tuesday I get to see the Tx group at Kaiser, which I havent see all summer.


  1. Very pleased to learn you are feeling better. Onward and Upward!


  2. Thanks for visiting donorcycle! Good luck with your transplant. There's another blog you might like-revive hope.

    My friends Steve and Melissa write for it. Steve is a double lung recipient and Melissa received a heart transplant in her late teens/early 20's(I can't remember, but I know she got sick with cardiomyopathy as a teenager). I love them both and they have a great blog, as do you. Good luck, I hope they find out why you're nauseous-I hate feeling like that, I can't imagine feeling like it on a regular basis.

  3. Allie, keep up your positive attitude and keep living! Your blog is inspiring and a source of strength for people like me. It brings it all back. I didn't have a complete transplant, but I did have open heart surgery last November a few weeks earlier than you. Stay strong and keep up the great blog!
