Journal Entry from exactly 2 years ago. . .


Okay I had an idea today for a post and I am not sure how it is going to turn out. I figured since I am only a little over a week from my 2 year transplant anniversary date, I would go back to 2 years ago and post entries from my handwritten journal. I have always kept a pretty good journal. Since the "BLOG" I however do most of my writing and thinking here. I had some pretty tough things happen 2 years ago. . . .so beware, it could be sad. (it is)

November 30, 2007
I wanted to write last night, but I fell asleep pretty good. Yesterday was a hard day for us. Bryan was in Blackfoot all day getting things ready for Pittsburgh, He left to come here to be with me (in the Pocatello hospital). After he got here, my mom called his phone. The call was pretty sad. . . .she called to tell him Geisha (my pug) had been killed; hit by a car. Mom turned her back for just a minute. She was killed instantly. I was stunned-Bryan was very sad, he sobbed for a long time. I can't believe she is gone, it doesn't seem real . . she was such a great pet! She brought me a lot of companionship and happiness. I won't replace her anytime soon. I REALLY loved her. when I think of the time and memories with her I cry. . . . .My parents buried her for us-it's like losing a family member- she was our "kid". I have a void now. She will always be in our hearts~
Now she isn't miserably licking her feet & scratching her allergy skin. She is running around like a pig entertaining heaven.

So this did totally make me choke up a little. I remember that so clearly. I remember coming to see that day and lying on the hospital bed with you. I remember that's when we all talked about the unknown and if it would all workout and you mentioned that it may not and that you has started to make a list of what you wanted people to have. I couldn't even fathom the what the next few weeks would entail. I love you girlie. You give me strength.

Where to start to learn about my transplant!

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
