Post Transplant Accomplishments?

I have done a few things I wanted since my lung transplant. . .I got back on stage, been in a commercial & was in a Movie (sorta). I have also started other goals, talked about some more and never really accomplished them. So what goals am I talking about? Mostly exercise related. I have wanted to run a 5K, compete in a sprint triathlon and compete in the transplant games (which unfortunately have been canceled). I have not actually done any of those goals :) I however DO know someone who has set some pretty cool goals and is on her way to completing them.

Most of my readers have read my posts about Supernina. . . she has already completed at least one 5K (I think more than one), and just finished a 50 mile Road Bike race. She is working towards competing in another Bike race for the American Lung Association. She will need to raise a $750 entry fee. I am really proud of her, she's freaking amazing! This race is also going to mark and celebrate her 1 year post transplant anniversary. I will post her progress and information if anyone wants to donate & help her raise her entry fee money. GO SUPERNINA!!

The American Society for transplantation has recently recommended that the term PTLD should be used for post-transplant infectious mononucleosis and plasma cell hyperplasia (reactive hyperplasia). When the term PTLD is not qualified, it must refer to the neoplastic disease.

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
