Good morning friends, family, fellow WARRIORS! I apologize for the lack of update yesterday, I was getting all caught up on some much needed rest and slowly making my bedroom a place of calm solitude, a peaceful place for healing my body and spirit.
A few tiny updates - I will be seeing someone from Olympic Medical Home Health today or tomorrow. I've already met a few of their nurses and feel confident I will be in good hands for home health care.
I have an appointment with my PCP on Tuesday and I can't wait for him to see how much I have improved. He played a huge part in getting me to UW and getting things figured out.
I go back to UW next Friday to see Dr. Raghu. I haven't seen him since my first night at UW last week, before being transferred to ICU. Again, so happy to have so many brilliant providers in my corner and working so hard to get me strong enough to receive my beautiful gift of lungs and liver with as little complications as possible. It feels so great to be getting back on track with the transplants! We still have some hurdles to overcome but with all of you standing with me and by the Grace of God, I know it will work out.
It is so wonderful to be home. As much as I loved the care I got and the people I met at UW, there is nothing more healing than sleeping in my own bed, in the same house as my family, waking up to the funny little birds outside my window putting on a show for me and watching the sun begin to bathe the lawn and trees outside my bedroom.
Take a moment right now to appreciate something little that never really even occurred to you was so special. This is a beautiful place, this place called earth. Enjoy it, cherish it, be thankful. Much love to you all!
