july clinic visit

I had a check up with my transplant team in Manhattan yesterday. I go about every three months now. Most people would find this exciting, but it’s also kind of nerve wracking. I like to be checked out a little more often. But it is nice too! Be careful what you wish for, I know!

What can I report to you? I’ve gained some weight. I know when they all say: YOU LOOK SO HEALTHY! That is code for: you gained a few pounds Natasha! It’s okay…everyone I crossed passed with also told me shoes were fantastic so it all evens out! ; )

My lungs are looking good. My sinuses have been giving me problems all year and I finally go in for sinus surgery next week, which is not something I am thrilled over. I know I’ll be in pain. I’ll be at MGH, a hospital where I am not followed at, and no one really “knows” me. But after the past month of unreal headaches I am looking forward to it a little bit! Hopefully it resolves the insane head pain and I won’t be counting a fifth sinus infection since they seem to be coming fast and furious now.

My lung function is stable. My kidneys are stable. All jump up and down good news! I don’t want any new organs anytime soon; I’m pretty content with the ones I have.  

I go in next Wednesday so I’ll be reporting back soon, hopefully nice and drugged up! I can't be held responsible for any communication later next week!
