So I thought this sounded like fun. I went through my photos and tried to find some things that I have done since I received my new lungs.
2 miles and 4 miles, more to come! This I was not able to do for years prior to transplant.
Hang out with cool people and eat also lots of food!
Love hiking! So does axel. This I was not able to do prior to transplant.
Be Santa's elf and chill with him and Mrs. Clause:
Yes. So awesome I know.
Ride my bike forever:
Whether its 10 miles of hills or 25 miles flat I CAN DO IT! This I was not able to do for a LONG TIME (if ever) prior to transplant.
Walk my dog:
Almost daily as he has the energy of the energizer bunny… This I would not have been able to do prior to transplant.
Go on adventures:
Have been on many adventures and have many, many more to come! I went on some VERY awesome adventures before my transplant but I always ended up sick or in the hospital shortly after, that does not happen now!
I WAS ABLE TO SNOWBOARD AGAIN!!! Without oxygen! Snowboarded with oxygen for a year (made it a few times) and completely skipped a year before my transplant due to health.
Graffiti Hay Bails:
aka make them look like adorable snowmen, photo taken before I finished. Best idea ever, thinking I probably wouldn't have made it with the oxygen.
Have an oxygen saturation of 100%:
This is just completely amazing. Never before seen in the life of Nina, I hadn't even seen 99 before…
Eat Ice cream!
This was actually my first post-transplant adventure, not even a day after I was released from the hospital, and I WALKED TO TCBY! Probably at least a half mile and it was uphill, just awesome, even though eating ice cream is pretty much all I could do before transplant, it was a huge accomplishment to walk there and eat on my own since I had been on the ventilator for so long.
Walk for 2 Causes!
I participated in the Jingle Bell Walk (2 miles) and a Walk for CF (5k) with over 30 super awesome friends and family members!
There you have it! My totally random things I have done since my transplant list. Hope you had fun reading!
Be an organ donor! Save someones life!
