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

I Have some good news....my white blood cell count is back down to 7 which is good! And my Prograf levels are back down to 9 so they are starting the prograf again. All good signs! Bryan has been wonderful to be here with and has made my stress, worries, fears, and anxiety subside. Dr. Pilewski is happy with my quick turn around so far and is talking 2 weeks....I haven't had a fever in about a day and I have been up and walking several times with Bryan! I have even gained a pound...on hospital food if you can believe it!

Well I want to talk a little bit about my new nephews....

This is BODI RILEY ~
My sister Nikkii's new baby. He was born the night before Mother's Day~ What a gift? I was able to hold him when I went home for Memorial Day~ He weighed 5lbs 15oz But was healthy and went home with his family the next day~

This is Paxton Leavitt~
Bryan's youngest sister's first baby boy...He was born the day after mothers day! He spent a couple weeks in the hospital in the ICU~ but was able to go home last Thursday! He weighed 5lbs 14oz (I think ) and was about 4-5 weeks early..but he's home now and healthy!

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
