Had an eventful week so I thought I'd update! On Friday, February 19, my alma mater, held a Pancake Supper fundraiser before the home basketball games for my transplant fund. It was wonderful, the support was over-whelming! I am truly blessed to have so many people who want to help. On Sunday, my dad and I went to Omaha and Monday I had appointments with my doctors. Even though I felt I had a cold since Saturday, my lung function tests showed improvement - 50% capacity and 31% function... I was shocked! My oxygen saturation was a bit down at 85% so they had some tanks delivered to me so I could wear it in the car on the way home on Tuesday. Also, since Saturday I have been having severe headaches off and on. They are exacerbated by coughing, which is not good for me, because I am always coughing! The past 48 hours have been really rough, so I went to the doctor today, then to get an MRI (which is very unpleasant if you have a headache and have the urge to cough the whole time). Hopefully I will know more tomorrow. That's about all I've got. Still waiting for that call for lungs, but it will come eventually!
