Enjoying the Good Days...

Hello my lovelies! 

At the moment I'm really just happy and relaxed about life and I'm loving it. I went to my INR Appointment today (Blood test to find out how fast your blood clots) and it was 2.2 which is great for me, we like it to be between 2.0 and 2.5 and for the past 3 months it has been really stable and has stayed in-between that range so I don't have to go back till mid September which is amazing. I think the last time I had a gap that long was last year sometime? Yeah it must have been just before I got my septicaemia, so god that's over a year ago woah! The only other appointment I have this month is my monthly bloods which isn't until later on in the month which means August is just turning out to be a quite hospital free month. Things start to pick up again in September and October but I'm just enjoying the freedom a bit. 

I seem to be feeling really well within myself which I know I don't often say and it's really great that I actually can say that. I think it's a combination of things I'm not working so I'm not having to recover from that and I'm just not overdoing it. I'm enjoying the good days. 

Because I'm feeling so well and just quite happy at the moment I'm trying to kind of avoid any news on others who may be getting their transplants and that type of thing because I know as soon as I see something like that I will feel really down again and I just don't want that because with that comes guilt and jealousy, you know just a mixture of emotions because I'll be feeling one thing and then feel bad for feeling that particular emotion because I should be feeling a different emotion. So when I go on Facebook I'll have a quick skim of the timeline check in on particular people and then try and not delve to deep into it if you know what I mean. I think that's the only way I'll stay in my happy little bubble for the time being. I know transplants are happening and that's wonderful but for me and right now I just do not need to see or know about them. 

In other news or magazines should I say the youngest Miss Pridden and I will be featuring in this weeks "Reveal" magazine which is quite cool. So if you want to go and get that and read it you can do. Once I get a hold of it I'm sure I will be adding it to my "Features Page"  

As always, thank-you for reading guys and chat soon
