On My Way Outta Here!!!!!

I was frustrated this morning when once again they wanted to skip my prograf until tomorrow.....so I asked why and I was told
"Your prograf levels were high so they are skipping them..."
I then replied. " How high were they?"
"They were 12.7..."
I said "My target is 10-12...so how is that high enough to skip an entire day?" I was concerned that by doing that my levels would become too low and once again the roller coaster prograf levels would begin again.

So I did what I know~ and that's take control...in a nice way.....I insisted they drew blood to check my levels. Then I emailed my doctor and asked him to clear some things up and shared my concerns with not seeing a doctor during the last week. He assured me that he was tracking me from Presby hospital but that there must have been some confusion with communication with the pulmonary specialist who should have been seeing me here at Magee.

He talked over my concerns and agreed with my conclusion. I am feeling better and am ready to be released to get back to life. I am going to have a chest xray today then I guess I am going to be set up for release tomorrow morning/afternoon. This is good news....because I am really missing my Bella!! Oh and really sick of laying around on my butt!!

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

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
