Hospital Tests

Hello!

Since my last update I've been very busy!

Last week I stayed in my local hospital for 2 nights to have some tests done, as I am going up to Great Ormand Street Hospital for a lung transplant assessment. This doesn't mean that I'm having a lung transplant for sure, but it's good to get GOSH's opinion. We're hoping that I won't need a transplant though. The tests I had done were; a CT scan (I didn't like this as they had to put a contrast dye in through my cannula and it really stung, and gave me a burning feeling all over my body!), chest x-ray, overnight capnography (to test for carbon dioxide, relating to oxygen levels), lung function (my lung function is up to 28 percent, which is 4 percent more than last time) and blood tests. We also had a meeting which a lot of different people attended, to put together my care package and set up things that I need at home to make me more comfortable. I think overall it was very positive! I did a walk test with my physio too, where I had to walk as far as I could in 6 minutes. I walked 155 metres in 5 minutes, with a 1 minute break in the middle. I was quite pleased with myself and the physio was surprised at how well I did! When I was on the ward, my friend Molly was also staying on the ward, so it was nice to see her and catch up with her!


A couple of weeks ago we also went to Exeter for clinic, and to meet with the diabetic consultant. I have started a new type of long-acting insulin called Insulatard, which I have in the morning, ,and if my blood sugar goes above 10, I have to take an injection of Novorapid insulin, too. 

As it was Mother's Day yesterday, my Mum, Dad, sister and I went for a walk on Marine Drive. It was really sunny! I took lots of photos with the camara that I got for Christmas, and had a really nice time! Afterwards we went for an ice cream in the village. When we got back home I had a sleep and then we watched a bit of the Woman in Black =O! Happy Mother's Day to my lovely Mummy for yesterday, I love her so much and she is always there for me! She is the best Mum in the world.
