Going to Pittsburgh 1yr & 1month post transplant!

Hello to All!!

I will be on a plane to Pittsburgh, PA in about 10 hours!! Yes once again I will be making the long flight to my favorite place on earth......well a good place anyway. Bryan's mom is going with me because Bryan is unable to go due to his heavy schedule. He gets up at 7am-4pm he goes to work...then drives 30-40 minutes home, changes and is at school by 6:30pm till 11:30pm. He is unable to miss work or school - so it's me and mom! I am excited and I am surprised she is excited also! I have my Dr. Appt and my Lung Function Test on Thursday the 8th....our 10th Anniversary! I am bumbed I am not home, but Bryan would just be at work and school all day anyway. I am planning on returning home Saturday as long as I am rejection free- SO START PRAYING!!

I want to also mention that Bryan was offered a promotion along with a raise just after only 3 weeks at work. He is out of training and is a real bill collector now.....watch your caller ID-it could be him!! :) He does great at everything he puts his mind to. He also had his first test at school and he scored a 100%. He said he thinks that is the first time ever doing that! Congrats to him. He is doing awesome even though it is very hard work! I have pictures of him in his school 'uniform' I will try to post them when I get home this weekend!

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
