Policeman's Ball

Last week we were unvited to attend the Policeman's Ball. I figured I was invited to to thank them for the $1,000.00 they donated to me about 2 months ago......boy was I in for a surprise! They auctioned off a pig and donated the proceeds to me again!!! Bowers Collision bought it for $650.00 then he redonated it for re-auction, then it went again 3 more times.... they raised another $2,528.00 for us! I was in tears....it was so generous of everyone there. Mike and Rocky were so generous, and I even got to dance with both of them! The money they raise goes to help people and programs in Blackfoot/Bingham County-it is a great opportunity for the community.

I am feeling very good-I turn 29 in 2 days........and I don't think I am going to reach my goal of weighing 100lbs :( but I am close maybe around 95-96lbs. I need to eat more brownies & rasberry cheesecake icecream! Garcia's has this deep fried chicken jalapeno cream cheese dish that is to DIE for! I need to eat more of that stuff.

We will be in Pittsburgh on May 1st for a check up and a bronchoscopy....check for rejection & cepacia. If they find rejection we will have to stay there and be treated for it. I don't have signs of rejection noe though- the bronch can find it before there are any symptoms.

keep ya posted- promise!

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
