|Justin and I when he came up to visit at UNC|
I am currently admitted to UNC for the first time here in Chapel Hill for a lung infection and excessive mucus buildup. I am now growing a new bacteria in my lungs called Staph or MRSA.
Today is day 13 of the admission and I AM GOING HOME TOMORROW! I had PFTs yesterday. My lung function is AMAZING! Better than I've seen in a few years! I am so blessed and so thankful that I have such an amazing family to motivate me to do my therapies and take my medication. Since I've been down in North Carolina, I have been doing so well taking care of myself! I've rarely missed treatments or medications and I have been much more active with taking the dogs for a walk several times a week.
Currently, I am looking into some sort of volunteer opportunities in my area. I have found one that I am EXTREMELY interested in. It would be helping out at the Aloha Safari Zoo near my house.
ASZ is for rescued animals. All, or nearly all, have been rescued and brought to live here as they would not be able to survive in their natural habitats. I am going to be contacting them as soon as I am discharged.
You can check out ASZ here----> Aloha Safari Zoo
Since my last update we have also added a new member to the family. Dixieland, Dixie for short, is our 10 week old Shepard, Pittbull, Mastiff mix. Justin made the mistake of leaving by myself at a flea market in Fayetteville and during the 5 minutes I was alone, I saw a man carrying a puppy and asked to pet her.
|Dixie, the day I got her.|
I guess that is all I have to say at the moment. Y'all have a super week! Much love to you!
