I'm happy to say that I'm feeling much better where that cold I had previously is concerned. I was kind of nervous as my first thought was..."Watch...they're going to call me in, like, two days from now and tell me to come in ASAP as a spot opened up and they want to do the transplant ASAP...and I'll have a cold and will be unable to be transplanted". Now that I'm better, I'll have to do my best to avoid getting ill again (as I would do in any other situation anyways!) :) The neti pot really helped. It kept my nasal passages moisturized and it also washed away the extra stuff in my nose. I highly recommend it. It's just a matter of making sure it is kept clean and that you use distilled water and not tap water.
But that said, I'd say I'm abotu 90% better, and will be 100% in the next day or two.
Hurray for feeling better!
As for feeling smarter, I officially got the email; I have completed all of my requirements to qualify for graduation! Yippie! Oh Lordy has it been a long road! Going to school/college with lupus definitely has not been easy...but I was determined to finish...and HELLO! I did! :D I can't wait to go to convocation...hopefully I'll be able to go and get my shiny new diploma with a shiny new kidney!! :) Can I get an AMEN for that?? ;)
Hurray for feeling smarter!!
