Rode my horse- 1st time since transplant!


Last week I rode my horse!!! It felt soooo good not packing oxygen, getting short of breath, plus I had so much energy!!! My horse was glad to finally get rode! We went to an arena and sorted cattle- it's a game- your on a team of 3 and you have to sort the cattle by numbers in order! Which ever team gets the most cows in 1.5 minutes wins.Our team almost won...maybe next time! Here are some pictures of me and Pixie & Princess- I was brushing off the winter hair and they were just being beautiful! This was worth going through the transplant!!!
Tuesday we leave to go back to PITTSBURGH!! My first check up!!! I feel really great- I now weigh 97lbs!!! I think they will be happy with my progress. They will be doing a bronchoscopy, chest x-ray and probably a CT Scan....to check for rejection and Cepacia. If I have rejection then we will have to stay there untill they get it cleared up. I'm praying for no rejection. I have a classroom of kids waiting here for me to learn the play we will be performing in June!

Bryan and I are going to "Second Chance Prom" Tomorow night!!! I bought a dress & Bry rented a tuxedo!! We are even being escorted in a limo courtesy of SALT LAKE EXPRESS! I will post pictures!!

*By the way Bryan has started a vinyl business- we can do any saying-lots of fonts and the price will be very affordable!! you can check out some of our stuff for sale at vinylbugdesigns.com if you want to order something email him us at vinylbug@live.com




Well gotta jet to bed! Love all of you! I will update from Pittsburgh!

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
