Been to Wythenshawe Hospital today for a routine check up and test. Had a heart scan, Lung and Heart x-ray, Lung function test and Blood test. Dr Leonard was very impressed with my progress and pleased with condition of my heart so reduced the medication and encouraged me to go swimming and exercise more. things are looking up.
This time last year I was desperate to go on the transplant list, I'd really had enough! Couldn't bear to think about the future, or how i would manage to take brandon to see the secondary schools next year! But yet here I am a year from them, 2 shinny new lungs and I took brandon to st michaels on my own and walked around! Again a big thank you to my donor who made this possible.

After Blood test and X-ray showing good signs of improvement, The Doctors were concerned about Natalie`s Blood sugar levels and general fitness so Natalie has been given instructions to be careful and keep away from people with infections and do more exercise to keep her lungs from going stiff which could cause her problems breathing but quite happy for Natalie to go Home and take things easy.
Natalie on F/B :-Thank you for all your lovely messages and comments! Sorry I've not been in touch much, I've been very poorly and feeling very low! Good news is I can go home tomorrow!!! Everything seems to be ok now, its set me back abit but aparantly this sort of thing isn't uncommon in the first year post transplant! Can't wait to get home and be with kids, guna take my time this time and do things at my own pace!
