"Iron Woman"

Well I have been pumped up with so many drugs and vitamins and stuff that I can't believe it! I have received my 2nd IV dose of Iron.....hence the new nickname "Iron Woman" ~ It has made me feel a little funny, but the Doc says that's common....

I went for a long walk with Bryan so I don't get into a habit of just laying around in bed getting waited on~ although it seems natural :) I think the infection is under control, I have no fever, no aches & pains and easy breathing! I am getting sick of being stinky~ The shower only has cold water(No Thanks) and so I have just been washing my hair in the sink....I could really use a blow dryer for my hair~ it's looking a little scary, major bed head! Overall I am happy with my progress and feel this is just a small speed bump and I will overcome it and be stronger than ever!!

I am really starting to miss my baby Bella.....I am going to have to post a picture of her just so I feel like she is with me~ Bryan's brothers family is taking good care of her and she is having fun playing with their kids! But still ~ She should be laying next to me...snoring and snuggling....

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
