Back to working out!!

This past week I have felt very "off". . . more tired than usual. I haven't even had to take an Ambien to fall asleep at night (really bizarre). I feel great though, no fever, no cough, nothing! So I am assuming that it may just be a slight side effect of the H1N1 vaccine that I got last week. I still went to the gym a couple times this week, but tomorrow I will be forcing myself to hit my workout routine hard again. . no more slackin'. I registered as a participating athlete on the Transplant Games 2010 website. They are working up putting together a profile and posting my transplant and life after story on their website. I am excited for that! I am getting really excited to have my goals ahead and that I can see me getting a little closer to each of them a little every day. I will post a link to the Transplant Games Website if you want to check it out. ..I am not on their yet, but hopefully I will be soon! I am looking to join a team, I am hoping I can join the Arizona team, if not I will try Idaho and Pittsburgh. I think I have to join the team closest to where I live?? If anyone will have me :)

I will make it to those games one of these days, they have the Donor Recognition Ceremony in DC on the odd years & I did get to go to that in 07, they chose my mother as the donor to recognize from our area, it was an emotional experience to say the least, but I loved it

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
