Only 5 more days!

I am busting out of the hospital probably Friday!! I would have been out last Thurs. but Dr. Paluski wanted me to have one more week of IV antibiotics. They were going to send me to the Family House on Home IV, but my insurance won't cover it so I guess I will stay here and do it. No biggie- What is one more week at this point anyway. I am feeling great- It's funny that when I walk my body/legs get tired, but my lungs want to go running! I keep reminding myself...........babysteps.....just babysteps. I have been doing quite a bit of scrapbooking. I have 6 pages of my surgery experience done now and there is plenty more to do. Nikkii & my Mom bought me supplies & paper so I have enjoyed being able to do that. They each helped by doing a page or 2 also.......it will be very special to look back at.

I have noticed many changes just in the last few weeks. I swear my clubbing on my fingers look better and my nails are very pink (instead of blue) and my cuticles look so healthy! My hair has more shine and I feel good. I think some of the roundness in my back has gone down and of course some of the inflamation is gone which has helped. I am getting so excited for 3 months from now- I will look (and feel) like a whole new ME!

Bryan turns 31 tomorrow- I was hoping to be out of the hospital by his b-day, but I guess not. Please wish Bryan a happy birthday tomorrow 1-21-08.....He is an amazing person. He has stayed by my bedside the entire time, sleeping on a camping cot that is to small because he loves me so much. He is my better half!

Love ya'll
Jamie

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
