New Update

Today was my clinic day.... As most of you know, I have been working pretty hard at trying to get my lung function up. My biggest motivation for doing it is because one day, I want to have a child, and we have decided that we will only do that if I am healthy enough. I'm not even sure what "healthy enough" looks like, but I know that it is higher numbers than I have right now.

Anyways..... drum roll please....... My numbers are now:
FVC 82% and FEV1 54%

That is up from FVC 70% and FEV1 45%

I will take that improvement any day! My next clinic appointment is February 1st. My goal for that one is to have my FEV1 up to 60%. Is it possible? I really don't know, but we will sure find out! :) I've got a lot of hard work ahead of me, but I think I'm up for the challenge!


  1. You can do it! Gotta love clinic when your PFT's are up :)

  2. That's fantastic! I'm so proud of you for working so hard. Wanting to have a child is excellent motivation and that's definitely my motivation right now, too! Good job! :-)

  3. I'm so excited for you and I love you so much :)
