Recovering Well

By Kirstietancock @kirstietancock
I have to say I never thought four days after transplant I would be so well, so happy, so mobile.
See my recovery before was after a long decline where all my muscle mass was stripped from me, ecmo ruined my muscles my mind everything. It was a means to an end but a horrible one that got me to the other side in the worst shape possible. I now know more then every that a normal transplant where your in a good muscular state as I was because I had declined quicker this time, don't get me wrong my lungs were really gone, i had only a week or more left, but the muscle was still there and that makes such a difference. I believe in ecmo and think it does it's job well, but I want one day where people don't get that ill they have to go on ecmo, ecmo isn't how transplant should be. People should have this as easy as it comes because it's still hard then. Although I feel rather high on life, love and all the energy people are sending me. Thank you for you messages. Also a continuous thanks to my donors and love to there familys. my thoughts are always with them. Ill leave with a few pics for now and just this short blog. I'm off 02, out of itu, 2 chest drains gone, cycling on the bike for 15 minutes and moving really well. Also planning for home mid next week.
All my love blog readers, remember dum spiro spero = while I breath I hope.
