Moving Forward

Well, we got the condo and Bryan graduates in seriously just over a week from now. We'll have a long weekend next week and my family will be in town to help us move our stuff out of our apartment and clean it. I am still in shock that all this is happening. We are very blessed to have a job lined up with a Harley Davidson Dealership and despite how far away it is, I am a little bit excited. I don't know where or why we are meant to go to Oklahoma but I have never been there so I guess I can't say I wont like it. . .yet :) I wasn't sure I would like Phoenix either. I ended up liking it a lot more than I thought. I will always think back on my last 2 years with many memories and with much fondness, so who's knows. . . .maybe I will say the same things about Oklahoma.

So here is something interesting. . .I celebrated my one year post transplant in Idaho(right before we moved to Phoenix), my 2nd year post transplant anniversary in Phoenix, Arizona and I WILL be celebrating my 3 year anniversary in Oklahoma!! So 3 States in 3 years. I just realized that and thought it was kinda cool :)

I live in Oklahoma. I just googled lung transplant blogs and ran across yours. I am a 33 year old wife and mother that has been referred for lung transplant evaluation. I am very scared at the thought my condition is to the point I am being evaluated for something like transplant. I decided to look for some blogs from those that are living life to tell the tale. Here is the blog I have just written. (www.whitneyfleming.wordpress.com)I have only been on oxygen since April. I am looking forward to seeing how well you are doing post-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
