Dr. Appointment Today!

I had an appointment today- things are doing great! Dr. Pilewski is such a great doc! He is very personable, and enjoyable. He seems to think I am doing very good.....he was supprised that I have gained 11 lbs since my last visit 2 weeks ago. I am up to 85.5 lbs today!!!! Only have 15 more pounds to go! I am starting to look like my self again. I may be released to go home as soon as next Thursday! I have a bronchoscopy scheduled for next Wednesday. That is good news. They changed my meds a little today- took me off a few more, but added some vitamins. I have had some great opportunities to meet & talk to people pre-transplant and post-transplant....there's an amazing connection between us.

I am sorry I am missing the concerts Nikkii has organized- I hope some one is able to record them for me to watch. I hear my acting students are going to do a great job!! I have no doubt they'll steal the show! I will look forward to seeing everyone in about 2 weeks. Oh- and everyone needs to pray for spring to be there when I get home! :)

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
