Susanne's Lungs!

I met (online) Susanne a while back. We have been keeping in contact via the internet. She is a young, beautiful Cyster who was in need of a double lung transplant. She had cultured Cepacia so she recently made the trip to Pittsburgh (UPMC, aka the greatest hospital in the world). I am a little bias :) They evaluated her and listed her for new lungs. Her and her mother moved from Georgia to Pittsburgh once she was ready to be listed active. I am not sure exactly how long she has been there, not very long. She is in surgery getting new lungs!!! I am so extremely happy for her and her family. Please keep her and her husband in your prayers. . .I know how hard it is on our spouses. Send many prayers for health and comfort because all of us post transplant remember that it can get worse before it gets better. . .but it does get better! I know God is watching over her and I am so happy for such a wonderful Christmas Gift.

Also don't forget to pray for the Donor family. They have given many the gift of life, but now have a heavy, mournful heart. Please pray for them to find comfort and feel all the love we have for them.

Susanne has a website for Donations and fund raising. You can check it out and donate if you can. http://newlungsforsusanne.org

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
