No place like home

Hello MN.  I arrived home last night about 7 PM and was greeted by 2 hours of rush hour traffic.  Wait, I thought I left LA behind:-)  I had my final clinic appointment the day before and it went well.  I had a little rejection again, 1R, but the doctors said don't worry at all.  Totally normal.  The rest of my tests were totally normal and my cardiac function was spectacular again.  I have started running since I last posted.  My doctors told me the week before to go live my life.  Shower, swim, run, lift weights, whatever I want to do.  I started to run on the 21st and all I could muster was .5 mile.  I didn't have any expectations, or I tried not to, but I admit to feeling disappointed.  I walked a 0.25 mile and then ran a 0.25 mile.  The next day I did two 0.5 mile runs.  Two days ago I ran 1 mile without stopping twice.  I won't beat anyone any time soon, but it doesn't matter.  My legs have been very sore.  I guess I lost muscle not having run for 3.5 years, but it feels like it is coming back quickly.  I am getting stronger every day.

It feels weird being home, not having been here for the past 5 months.  At the same time it feels great.  One fun thing I did last night was throw away all my old VAD accessories.  Things like harnesses, holsters, etc. that I wont ever need again.  Didn't feel bad at all!   I can't wait to play my guitar later today, no hum or buzz from my pump ever again.
