One more week

Well I went to the doctors on Friday and while I am definitely feeling better and I am moving air better I still have some crackles in my lower lobes so I am doing one final week of the Merrem and Ceftazidime.

I did my PFT's which were not at all to my liking, but my doctor told me to not dwell on that (I tend to overreact sometimes) because I had only been on the good antibiotics for a week. I go back next Friday so hopefully I improve by then.

I have been seriously debating the idea of joining the gym that's right around the corner from my house. Its open 24/7 and offer some really cool classes that I am interested in trying. One is a "integrative yoga" its a beginners yoga for older people and the "less active" that keep medical conditions under consideration. Which obviously I need since I would have my O2 with me!

I did buy some workout videos which Sara had suggested awhile ago that I like but my motivation for actually doing the videos at home is very low and I know its something that I need to do. Whenever I get the energy to want to workout I do the DVDs for a couple of weeks religiously and then eventually I get lazy again. Its horrible I know and something has to change.

On a high best friend is moving back to Florida this weekend and I couldn't be more excited!! She moved to Georgia over 3 years ago and I haven't seen her since so I am really happy that her and her family will be at my house for dinner on Sunday night. I have known her since kindergarten and besides Danny and my family she probably knows me better than anyone. Even if I don't talk to her for a few months when I do its like no time has passed and we pick up right where we left off. I will be glad to have her home again.

Have a great Wednesday and Happy Hump Day!! :-)

Jen... Do it!! JOIN! YAY!!! That yoga class sounds awesome and yoga teachers are almost ALWAYS happy to adjust as needed.. they are just glad you're there!!!

I understand the lack of motivation. Mine would go up and down pre-tx too, cuz you just don't feel good sometimes and well, it's not easy to breathe! BUT don't concentrate on that.. just focus on getting back on the workout wheel and you'll be glad you did.

Plus, the added bonus of going to a gym... just think, one day you will be there RUNNING or whatever and everyone there will think, wow, if this chica can get out there and do it.. so can I! .. and you'll be continuing to inspire people...

So proud of you, Jen.. I know the 'wait' is long... but it's SO worth it.

AND I wish my BFF lived closer! SO happy for you! That will be a boost for you!
