Bryan starts school!!

I thought I would post before I fell asleep. First of all... My friend Nancy who just got a double lung transplant is doing good. It's only been 4 days since her surgery & she is off the ventilator and smiling. I am happy she is doing so well. It was her Christmas wish just as mine was last year!

Tomorrow is Bryan's first day of school!! He will be very busy. Bryan's mom was here this weekend...it was so nice to see her and spend time together. She brought gifts for Christmas - our tree looks better with a few presents under it! I think my parents are going to try to come right after Christmas!! Bryan has made a few friends at work & I'm sure he'll make more at school. I think I may be a little lonely though! I will just have to find things to do to occupy my time!! If anyone wants vinyl lettering or scrapbooking done...I have plenty of time to do it!

I can't believe Christmas is just 10 days away!! I am excited...I don't even remember Christmas last year. :)

Hi Jamie,

I am Nancy's longtime, childhood friend and I found your blog through her blog. It is a Christmas miracle what has just happened to Nancy and we are all so grateful that in His time, He provided new lungs to her. What a blessing.

I just want to thank you for being an inspiration to Nancy. You gave her hope and encouragement that she could climb this hill of getting new lungs.

I wish you the best always and I look forward to Nancy's new lease on life and what it means for her.

May God Bless you and watch over you.

Blessings in Christ,

Debbie Blomquist

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
