Cooking on hold

All of my cooking has been on hold for a few days and it is killing me! I didn't even realize how much I love to cook! I have been having SEVERE stomach pain after I eat the past couple days and I do not know why.  Tuesday I had a check up with my transplant doctor, and I had an ultrasound on my belly - turns out I have gallstones.  EEK.  But this may or may not be what is causing my pain.  I will go back for an endoscopy to check for ulcers and to see if my fundoplication (aka stomach wrap) is maybe too tight.  But I really miss cooking so much.  So today I am going to cook anyway even if I can only have a bite.  In other news my lung function has held pretty steady around 40% the last few months which is good news! So I am not back on the transplant list yet....even though a small part of me wants to be.  I can't explain it, but now that I know what it is like to breathe normally my tolerance is pretty low when I get short of breath or cough or struggle.  But at the end of the day the more time I get out of these lungs the better...
