Catching Fire

Catching Fire. . . is the 2nd book of the 'Hunger Games' which I told you all about a while ago. I bought it tonight! I am going to try my hardest not to read it yet though. I am wanting to save it for my LONG trip to Pittsburgh, and all my waiting in waiting rooms at the hospital. Hopefully I can be good and not start it, not making any promises.

I HAVE to finish the current scrapbook I am working on. It needs to be finished and mailed by the end of next week at the latest! I am close, only about 4 more pages to complete, hopefully I can come up with 4 more great ideas and layouts.

We booked our hotel room in Pittsburgh $65.00 a night and our rental car is going to be about $35 dollars a day. . .it all adds up pretty quickly. Although I am really, really pumped that Bryan is going with me this time. I feel so safe when he is there with me. He knows his way around Pitt very well :) I know things will go well and all my tests should come back with good results~ I am feeling good about this trip. As much as I worry about things, I am excited to get away and see everyone at UPMC :)

Good luck with your appointments. I hope it all goes well! I'm so glad Bryan will be with you. Do you have to get a bronch? How awesome that there are programs to pay for medical travel. I've never heard of that. Blessings! My mom and I just returned from my appointment. You are right - it adds up quickly! Especially when you're going every three months as you well know! I hope everything goes smoothly. I'm sure everyone at UPMC will be happy to see you!

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
