The first bad day...

Okay so I've titled this "The first bad day" but I mean it's not been bad as in really bad it's just been bad because I have my first bug since I had my transplant. I've been throwing up and just generally feeling quite awful all day which has been "really" fun I can assure you. It's been very strange because I've been SO well since I had my transplant to suddenly not be able to really get out of bed has been weird to say the least.  

Now normally this wouldn't really be an issue but with throwing up that then means I've probably thrown up pills which being post transplant is not a good thing. Luckily I only managed to throw up one called Itraconazole which basically helps me absorb one of my immuno-suppressants we think I managed to absorb some of it so it's not a massive issue it's just going to make me worry till Wednesday now. The rest of today was basically spent on me focusing on not throwing up after taking any pills because I did not want to add that to my worry list.   

I haven't been too worried about it though because everything else is fine like lung function, temp, weight etc. I think this experience has just been a learning curve for my family because now we know how easily I can pick up bugs from little people so whenever anyone is ill I will be staying far, far away. It's a weird thing to get used to I think because even though I was ill before I still managed to fight off bugs pretty well and never really caught them too often so to suddenly have my pretty great immune system stripped from me is definitely something I'm going to have to get used to I kind of thought I was going to get away with not getting ill because I've been around quite a lot of people recently and who knows what kind of bugs they all had so now I'm kind of worried that it's going to catch up with me. Well whatever the case it either will or it won't happen and I seem to be dealing with this one okay so hopefully anymore I'll be just as resilient. 

I also forget that I'm only 8 weeks post transplant so I'm still pretty "new" but I feel like I should be able to do all the things I want to be doing like being around people and my body is still getting used to this whole immunosuppressed thing so I obviously can't be doing that. The weather has been awesome though I don't know why but just seeing and listening to the rain makes me happy and it has just been non stop raining today so the world obviously knew I was ill so wanted to cheer me up :). 

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