Getting Fitter!

Hello everyone! 

It's been nearly a week since my first post and I'm amazed at how many people have read my blog already - over 3,000 views! Thank you for all your kind messages of support.

Last week turned out to be a really good one in many ways. My physio went really well, and I could feel myself getting fitter each day. This also showed in a number of measurable ways; my oxygen requirement has gone down from 1.5 litres to 1 litre, and my heart rate has come down significantly. My chest has been feeling clearer too. I have been walking more and riding the exercise cycle in the gym at a higher resistance and speed each day. I have also started playing Wii Sports during my physio sessions.

I have also been on the oral suspension version of my main anti-fungal medication (Itraconazole), and my blood levels of this are now in a good range. This is really important, because I take it to treat the bug (Exophiala dermititidis) which has caused me problems for about 5 years, and which is the main reason behind me becoming so ill and ending up in intensive care.

On Thursday, we had the multi-disciplinary team (MDT) meeting, as planned in order to discuss my discharge. There is a lot to figure out and arrange, because there are lots of major life changes that have already taken place and will have to take place in the near future.
