HUGE Congratulations to our beloved @Caspiana and ticking the box for her 1st year's anniversary since transplant.



Lots of respect & love from Hazel and 🐿🌈xx

Many thanks SquirrelsHolt . Sending love and hugs. xx 💕😘💓

Dear Cas thank you for your reply and would you mind me asking you if you felt the last 12months have passed by quite quickly or maybe the last year seems to have dragged it's feet and seem to have taken ages? 🐿🌈x

Hello SquirrelsHolt 😁 by and large it went fast but this rainy season is dragging ever so slowly and I don't do well with too much rain 🌧️ and humidity. xx 👋😊

Oh my Caspiana I can only imagine how the humidity must effect you because for me , it's really horrendous. Solid rain is a pain but my breathing can just about cope. Throw into the mix some ridiculously high humidity and I'm usually sitting right in front of my bedroom fan which pushes out cool air. I'm thinking of purchasing another one just in case of the first fan breaking down!😂😂😂!!!!!

We are all different with our range of lung damage etc but the vast majority of women(i say "women", as they've put it in their posts/replies) all suffer from being made uncomfortable with humid weather. All ranges, from only barely noticeable to now and again , to extremely worrying episodes.

Sorry dear Caz I've not asked how you are doing apart from the humidity, but more to do with your 1st anniversary since transplant the other day? Love to you and handsome 🐕Chom.........🐿🌈x

What an achievement! Congratulations on your one year milestone. 💕

Wishing you many anniversaries where we can all celebrate your courage, determination, bravery and new lung. 🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳

You are a truly inspirational person who has made a difference to this world. Never forget that xx

Caspiana in reply to crashdoll

Thank you very much crashdoll , I hope you are feeling better these days. Much love to you. xx 😊👋💓

Wow a whole year! Congratulations Caspiana and thank you for the reminder BSA-3.

Hope you're feeling good today Cas. Charlotte's reply says it all for us . Love and hugs to you 🤗 ❤ xxxx Penelope

Caspiana in reply to peege

Thank you so very much Penelope. Love and hugs back. xx 💕💓😘

Can’t believe a year has passed already! You have done so well overcoming the difficulties, sharing the highs and lows and educating us about what a transplant entails and all the while keeping us amused too with your posts showing your wonderful model villages, stories of Chom and your visits to see the consultants. I won’t forget your visit to Mr Slob. You still find time to give your honest, compassionate advice to other lung buddies and are greatly appreciated by all of us.

Wishing you all the best for this year and the years to come. Hope you succeed in achieving your hopes and dreams

Love X💐🌈🎶🌸🌼🌻🌺🌷

OMG I am so sorry I missed your post somehow BSA but thank you for reminding us of our amazing Cas.

Congratulations amazing lady Cas. You have shown great courage and fortitude and strength and have done this in such a positive way. You really are inspirational (overused but in your case true).

So glad you are part of our BLF family - your experience of transplant is invaluable to those who are yet to face this surgery and after.

Lots of love
