Had my lung function redone today, I was a little aprehensive as it was the lowest ever when I came in at a tiny rodent amount of 16% (0.5 litres, small bottle of coke or similar) but it has bounced nicely back up to my usual 0.7 litres, which is 22%. For some reason being above that 20% threashold makes me feel so much safer, so am a happy bunny!

I had a rather puffy day today, and consequently spent all afternoon lying very still indeed, feeling as though I was running a marathon. Breathless periods like that come and go in patches, and it is horribly frustrating as literally just breathing is tiring, and you cant not breathe for a period to rest! I have pulled my muscles due to the strain of the afternoon, but it's nothing a bit of paracetamol and some good rest on high flow O2 mask (hurrah darth vader is back) wont fix.

Off for an early night, hopefully lungs will play along a bit more tomorrow so I can get up and do some excerise, I didnt even leave the room today, not even to visit the hot chocolate machine! (this hospital has the best hot choc in the world).
