Post-transfusion and feeling fine!

Good Morning!
Wow, feeling no shortness of breath in my house at all!  Haven't walked a marathon or tried to run laps, but walked from my bed to bathroom to downstairs to the kitchen to get cereal and milk and to the table with no troubles at all!!!   Miraculous!  Praising God for sure!!!!  It has been a long week and longer since I could do all that without collapsing into a chair or onto the couch!  Wow!  So awesmoe!!!  Thank you Lord!

I fell asleep on the couch at 7:00pm last night, at 8:00pm made it up to bed to watch Am Idol with Miranda (it's been our thing and I love having a weekly scheduled time with her!), and I fell asleep for the night... I loved knowing she was just there with me, she could have watched it downstairs on the better tv, but she chose me.  Isn't that what we all want?  To be chosen?  Yes!  God chose us all long, long ago.  Very awesome!  You, me, us, chosen.  I love that!  Ramble.  [smile]

Am still feeling weak, and that is to be expected as it takes up to three days for that new blood to carry oxygen to all my organs and get all my 2000 parts nourished.  Oh, and the heartburn.  Yesterday was a heartburn-y day and then I pushed it with dinner and paid for it all night.  I slept well, but each time I woke up the burn was so incredible I was wimpering.  Shawn kept me medicated but nothing really cut it to gone.  Ugh.  Took it easy for breakfast, back to R1ce Krsp!es for this Momma today.   Gonna let my gut rest, gonna try and drink lots because it's good for my hemoglobin to perk itself up by me keeping hydrated, and gonna rest cuz that's what everyone has ordered!  [smile]

I am just so ... tickled pink... to feel no shortness of breath!  What a huge blessing in this day!

May your day be great!
