You know what? We have been here in Chapel Hill / Durham too long!! We get recognized at the clinic, at restaurants, at grocery stores, at Walmart, etc….. almost everywhere!!! Guess that means we have been here too long. But that is okay, it is fun to be recognized! (They might all have a hard time recognizing me after I get my new lungs!!)
This past week has been a good one. I got out of the hospital on Monday afternoon, feeling pretty good about the progress made on my infection. Started back with the pulmonary rehab group on Tuesday. Did okay. Off Wednesday for the fourth so we tried to get rested up from the hospital stay (no sleep while there to speak of – constantly being waked up). Back with rehab on Thursday and Friday and I improved both days.
Still taking antibiotics and will be for almost 2 more weeks. I am also on increased steroids (prednisone) for a few more days. I hope that this will not impede my rehab progress but so far they do not seem to be having an affect.
I will be going back for a checkup and tests to make sure all is well on Friday, 7/13. My plan is to have a good report from rehab when I go. I seriously doubt that they will list me before I have finished all of these medications (the antibiotics should be finished around the 20th).
So this is where we are with my health situation. I do have to brag on Charley again though. He continues to take very good care of me and our two fur babies every day. I love him with all of my heart and soul. And it goes without saying that Cheyenne and Sadie love him dearly too!!
It would be nice if all you folks out there would add two of our new friends to your prayers. Both had their transplants recently and they are having some issues. Their names are Olin and Lonnie. Lonnie had a double lung transplant plus heart surgery. Olin had a double lung transplant. They both seem to be improving but all those prayers do help!!
Well, that gets us all caught up with the world of Sherry & Charley right now. Thank you for all the great comments you have been sending our way. Prayers, hope, and, encouragement always help keep spirits up and keep us fighting hard to accomplish what we are setting out to do.
