I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears, behold I will heal thee.

Hey Everyone~

I am reporting today from a room at a "transitional floor" so pretty much an old folks home wing...but so far I like it better than the other hospital room~ at least here I have a nice hot shower and a blow dryer (it's like a hotel) Bryan is able to stay here with me on his air mattress and that keeps me calm and happy~

I think the Doctor is planning on keeping me for another week (at least) My lungs are feeling great and I have felt overall pretty good the last few days~ I can't tell you how special all the generous gifts we have received are....once again it bring me to tears. I can promise everyone that the money donated is a huge help!! I'm sorry~ I feel like I am a never ending cause....and I never want anyone to burden themselves because of me. I pray that everyone that has done things or donated is aware how much It means to me and I wouldn't be alive without so much love and charity from others......This has been an interesting situation develop but I know I'm loved and we'll be taken care of!

So I guess I am just in a very thankful and humble mood today~ I love life and I hope to live up to everyone's expectations of me. Everyone who has helped or been involved in anyway should know that they are part of a wonderful MIRACLE and what you did never goes unnoticed......

Save a live..."Be Someone's Hero"....Be an Organ Donor

Jamie, You are totally in our prayers and thoughts. I know exactly how you feel, sometimes it gets overwhelming to be the recipient of so much love and support, especially financial support. Aren't people amazing?!?! Whenever I hear people complaining about how selfish people are and that humanity is so horrible, I just think about all the times our family has asked for help and been flooded with responses from people who want to help in any way they can!! Hang in there, so many people are sending positive thoughts and love. I'm so so glad you got a shower, hospital showers are the WORST! Blessings and healing, Sharlie

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
