So this week has been stupid, just really, really stupid and as childish as I know that sounds it is the only way I can describe this week. As you all know I was in A&E on Sunday and then Wednesday I decided to go out with my work chummies as I had been planning to for the past few weeks which in hindsight wasn't the best idea due to the fact I actually wasn't feeling that well and haven't been able to get off my oxygen since my little visit to the hospital on Sunday. Anyway long story short we were put in what can only be described as a sauna, the air was horrible and thick and barely breathable and we were down some stairs with the smallest windows on the planet that probably opened about an inch. So I started feeling funny and dizzy and just plain old horrid there was no way I was going to be able to get up the stairs so I had to pull out the "I'm waiting for a Heart and lung transplant" card before they would open the fire exit for me. I got my sister and dad to come and get me, oxygen in tow and I went home. I didn't even get a chance to eat my dinner :'(.
Later on in the evening about 11pm I started to feel even more horrible, my heart rate was like 130/140 my muscles were really horrible and shaky and stiff and I honestly have no idea what was wrong with me. Once again I ended up in A&E I felt awful and I'm pretty sure a nurse tried to kill me whilst I was in there. He gave me a drug which I told him I don't react well to which was soon to be followed by me going in and out of it, BP dropping to the floor, heart rate reaching new heights of 169 and following by continuous bursts of heart rate going sky high and BP going through the floor every now and then. For every good experience I have in A&E I have at least 2 bad ones and it was scary because the doctors didn't even seem to care that it was happening. Hey ho at least I got to go home after it seemed to settle which was about 4/5am.
I have been put on house arrest until my antibiotics have finished and hopefully I'm going to start to feel better. I feel bad because I seem to be constantly writing about bad things and I don't mean to, it just seems to be my life at the moment. I'm sure I'll feel better soon though :D I'm watching an excessive amount of Gilmore Girls and lots and lots of Disney movies, Frozen in particular because if any of you are anything like me you have to overdose on a disney movie when it comes out :) . I have discovered though that I don't actually own Sleeping Beauty and now I have this massive craving to watch it, damn Megan for moving out and taking her copy with her LOL.
I'm in my 20's and after waiting 3 years,
I underwent a heart and double lung transplant because I suffered from a illness called Pulmonary Hypertension.
This blog is where I documented that journey and will continue to document all the amazing highs and the lows post-transplant. I hope to continue to raise awareness for both PH and organ donation and I would love for you to continue to share this journey with me.
