CysticGal Called Last Night

Last night CysticGal called me for a few moments at 10:31.  She sounded super.  She says it hurts when she coughs, and CysticDad is running around trying to find her a super great hard pillow like I had.  You hug it to you when you cough, and well, it makes you feel a bit better.  Lots of coughing happens after transplant because lungs get irritated after you say, take them out of a human and put them in another human.  They make a lot of mucus as a defense mechanism, but it is not CF mucus, rather, normal people mucus, it is just that there is a lot of it. 

And now for a surprise!  CysticGal text me this self-portrait, and told me to post it on the blog!  CysticGal, July 29, 11:16 PM.  That's about 42 hours after she got out of surgery!
