Today marks 3 months since my Transplant……
I have been focusing on my health and trying to protect myself during this flu season as best as I can.
I have been to see my neurologist who was so happy to see me and I could also feel her frustration that HSCT is not available in Australia. She too, agrees that this will be main stream treatment in 10 years time.
I thank my lucky stars every day for the opportunity that I was given by the wonderful Kristy Cruise, who made me aware of my options.
A ‘NEW LIFE” with this disease stopped ♥
Whilst this diseased has been halted, I still have some days where I feel tiered, fatigued and have had some mild anxiety. I haven’t been dizzy, haven’t had blurry vision, and haven’t had severe burning on my body, which I used to have!! BONUS!
I have learnt to listen to my body and not push myself too much.
Above all, I feel good!!! I feel positive about my future and what lies ahead for me.
My next appointment with my Haematologist is at the end of this month and this will give me a better indication as to what my cells are doing……So far so good.
I have been slowly starting to get out and about a bit more now and am so excited that spring is upon us. I will get to enjoy more fresh air and start walking daily, as it has been hard during the winter months.
My hair has grown about 1.5cm and have enjoyed not having to blow wave my hair every day (like I used to) Wigs are so in right now!!
I have enjoyed being back home and spending time at home with my girls, doing the simple things like homework, washing dishes together, playing games and just hanging out. This journey has given me perspective on life and what is important.
To be happy and not stress about little insignificant things…..Enjoy life with your loved ones and do what makes YOU happy!
Thank you to everyone who has followed my journey and supported me during this time.
