FB status isn't enough. I should blog more. More pics of my yarn and crafting. Right?

I started off the new year with a new heart - actually, received my new heart on December 30, after only a month and a half on the waiting list. Still adjusting to life as an organ recipient. Still mostly at home except for visits back to the hospital for tests, and will be mostly at home for several more months. That's because transplantees take a whole bunch of immune-system suppressing drugs, which means I could catch a virus or other germ if someone so much as looks at me funny. The doses go down quite a bit after the first 6 months.

So far, changing my schedule around to take meds at strict times and eat meals at strict times has been the biggest adjustment. Well, and coping with the "sternum protection" rules while my breastbone heals - have you ever tried sitting up from lying flat in bed without putting any weight on your arms? Cant bend over and pull out the big bin in our bottom freezer, either.

But then, a regular schedule is probably healthier overall, right? Enough sleep, waking up at the same time every day, those are supposed to be healthy.

Still, it takes some getting used to.
