Finally I’m starting to feel like I’ve got an appetite. These steroids are likely to be contributing to the hunger. Nevertheless, it’s definitely positive as I’ve struggled to stomach much since the operation.
My mum and I have been out shopping, been treated to a hair cut and eyebrow threading. I can shower standing up by myself and help with a few little jobs around the house.
I trialed an overnight stay at home with Nate and Logan on Sunday. Logan was so happy to see me. I’d never seen him so excited!!! Nate and I had to take him for a walk to calm him down. He was calm and chilled after that. The trial went really well so I’m heading back this Friday. 😊.
I missed them both so much but had to head off for an ultrasound scan, clinic and dietician appointment on Monday morning. My liver functions were good and my scan looked promising which is all that matters.
I’ve been so lucky to have my transplant at this time of the year. I’ve got summer to look forward to, cousins who have babies on the way and another cousins summer wedding, which I’ll be able to attend.
What I’m most excited about is having a new lease of life. I still keep having to remind myself that the wait is over. 27 long years knowing I’d need a transplant, and 4 years of being on and off the list – over! It’s a huge relief!
