I took it easy today since I had two hard days in a row. I woke up to take my meds, but I didn’t really get up and get active until lunch time. Cindy, Carol, Fidel and I met up with Cindy’s friends for lunch at Barney’s. It turns out that Cindy’s friend is a resident at UCSF, and he was one of the doctors who came to do an epidural after my transplant before they realized that I wasn’t supposed to have one. What a small world.
I’ve been slowly trying different kinds of foods to see which ones still taste good. I had success with the bun when I went for Vietnamese food last week, so I requested it for dinner tonight. When Jessica came over this evening to hang out she offered to ride her bike to pick it up for me. Thanks Jessica! (Btw, I loved the coconut drink!)
Tomorrow morning I need to be at the hospital by 7:30am so I’m going to try really hard to go to bed early. Last night I didn’t sleep very well; hopefully tonight will be better.
Knitting update: Carol is almost finished with the first skein of yarn! The scarf is looking great. Using the self-striping yarn was a great idea – it brings an element of surprise as she pulls the yarn from the center.
My good news for the day: I sneezed twice today! The sneezes came after much coughing, but progress! It’s satisfying to have physical evidence that my trach hole is closing up.
