Best walk so far!

I have had a wonderful day and am feeling incredibly positive, not only have I managed to escape home several times in the last couple of days but today I had my most successful training session so far. I walked all the way down the entire length of the ward without stopping (first time since this huge episode) and I really began to think I might actually be able to walk this last bit across the finish line.

I know with the excitement of the day and the difference of being outdoors not in a controlled environment it will be harder, but I think that I can walk a distance that I will be proud of, and even if I dont do as well on the day as I wanted to I can be proud in the knowledge that I have trained and worked to the best of my ability.

6 weeks ago exactly my lung collapsed, 2 days later I was intensive care. When I left intensive care I was unable to get out of bed without becoming frantically out of breath, and today I was striding along a corridor practically dragging the physio along (well slight exaduration but it felt like it!)

Bring on Sunday, I am determined to enjoy every minute of it, because I am very lucky to be here with the possibility of participating and because many many wonderful people are coming together to help me raise as much as I can for the CF Trust.
