I have Cystic Fibrosis and this is my experience of getting a lung transplant.
Tuesday, 3 November 2009
I lie here on my back - something I could never do before - and just breathe. Each breath fills my lungs completely. I've got the angle of the matress just right - there is no pain. I'm blissfully happy. I don't know if it is just the steroids that are leading to mood swings and that are being responsible for tears at every show of kindness, letter or nice comment but who cares. I'll just lie here and breathe, feel lucky and fill my head with possibilities. Night night all.
I am a 35 year old CFer married to Vicky and living in Cambridge, UK. I had a double lung transplant in October 2009. This blog follows our ups and downs through the pre- and post-transplant experience, as patient and partner.
