Today, my mom being my mom couldn't wait for my doctors appointment that I have tomorrow (I'm going back tomorrow because I didn't do PFTs yesterday) to find out what the glucose test revealed. And it turns out that I do have diabetes.. Which isn't something I'm surprised about, I've had the feeling I've had diabetes for awhile now. But it was just confirmed today. So tomorrow, we're taking about what I have to do and everything that diabetes entails. Diabetes is very common among CF patients. Almost all of us have it or will develop it in our lifetime. It just sucks that I have it now. Just yet another thing I have to now worry about. GRRR!!!!

On a good note, I finally got to meet my cyster Addie today! She's incredible. My mom and I went to lunch with her today. We got the chance to ask her a bunch of questions we have about transplant, seeing as how she's been through it. It was an amazing lunch. She's such an inspiration to me! Before I met her, I wasn't sure if I wanted to get a transplant but seeing how successful she has been with her transplant, has really changed my mind about it. I could've sat and talked to her all day long. She is definitely someone I know I will be close with for the rest of my life! I love her <3 Next wednesday, my mom and I are going to a donor breakfast with her and her mom. It's a breakfast and most everyone who attends has had an organ transplant of some kind. And people who are thinking about getting a transplant. I'm pretty excited!!
After my appointment tomorrow I will post an update! Prayers and good thoughts are always welcome and right now are very appreciated!!
