Doing Time!

Here I sit in a 12x20 room with a lot of time to sit and think. It is hard to be here when I know there is so much I can be doing to prepare for the speghetti dinner. I decided to be admitted due to the fact my oxygen sats were dropping pretty low and I didn't want to be sick before flying to Pitsburgh; Although if I am trapped up here at Portnuef Medical Center, then I can't push myself and overdue it this week. I am really excited for the fundraiser on Saturday night!! Oh- and don't forget the Outback Lunch on Dec. 18t

I am full of excitement when I think of all of this....I used to be scared & anxious, but I really am happy and looking forward to this opportunity. I am sooo tired of being...tired. A transplant is chance for me to be "me" again. Everyday I have headaches that don't go away, I think about every breath I take....as I struggle to do simple tasks. I am ready to change that. For me a double lung transplant is my only hope...I am thanful for that. A cure for CF is not close enough to benefit me, but it can save younger patients, so I still plan on participating in Great Strides, it makes me feel like I am making a difference.

I will be released from the hospital on Fri. or Sat. So I will see you all Saturday Night!

My Testimony

It's hard to put into words how I feel toward my Heavenly Father and the Savior. I have so many reasons to be thankful for what I have gone through & endured. Because of my trials in life I have gained a strong testimony of Faith. I have always had Faith in the Lord and in Prayer. As I faced the decision to get a double lung transplant I had to rely on faith to make the choice.....By listening to the spirit, I was guided to Pittsburgh where my life was saved. I believe prayers are answered. I have always tried to follow the philosophy of this: If I do what the Lord expects of me, he will give me what I want & need. That has always worked for me. I Believe in MIRACLES..........My life on this earth is a miracle- I prayed on my knees for years to be healed from my lung disease. I knew that through a priesthood blessing (if it was God's will) I could be healed. So many times I thought he would heal me instantly...my faith was tested as I continued to get sick and no cure was in my future. I turned to prayer....I talked to my Heavenly Father, I cried to him and he heard me and he healed me by guiding me to Pittsburgh and guiding the surgeons hands. I learned humility, and thankfulness. I realized that we need others to lean on and we are supposed to strengthen each others testimonies. I learned that the hardest things we'll do are usually the greatest blessings in our life. I was able to experience a lot of things during surgery and I know I had comforting angels in my ICU room. THe Lord knows each of us by name and he will never leave our side. We need to remember to stay close to him and have Faith that he is watching over us. I know this for a fact! I know that following the gospel will bring us true happiness- the world will tell us otherwise, but I know I am truely happy & living the gospel has brought me that. Amen
