Happy to be back in Canada and back to the rink. Last night I went to play summer hockey and in Halifax, it was the first time it felt like summer. I was breaking in a new trapper and liked it. It felt good right out of the box and felt like half the weight of my old one. I played well for the first half of the game but got tired let in a couple of shaky goals and misplayed the puck a few times in the second half, but happy with my game.
I also had bloodwork and pulmonary function tests yesterday. My PFTs were “best ever” and my bloodwork came back with my kidney numbers up a bit but they have been higher. Ironically, some of the anti-rejection medications are hard on the kidneys and many longer-surviving lung transplant recipients will eventually require a kidney transplant. I have to be vigilant to drink lots of water to keep the kidneys functioning and I got away from that a bit during vacation. I’m not sure if beer intake counts.
Not surprisingly, I managed to add a couple of pounds over my vacation. I don’t think I will have too much difficulty taking that off.
