Moved into a house!

This last week has been a lot of work which I am hoping pays off :) We moved out of our 3rd floor apartment into a nice house with a fenced yard for Bella. It will be nice to grill on the patio as well as having a garage to airbrush in . . . oh and occasionally park the car and motorcycle. haha. I climbed up and down 3 flights of stairs about 100 + times in the last week. My legs were so sore, but the exercise was good for them.  Our new place has a LARGE jetted jacuzzi tub in the master bath which I'm telling you is INCREDIBLE!

My next hurdle is getting to Pittsburgh, PA for a post transplant clinic. Everything is stable and I feel great, however, I haven't been to Pittsburgh since May 2010. . .that's almost 2 YEARS! They want me to come and visit them and I'm thinking they might do a bronch, but if there is no suspicion of rejection then they might not. I admit I miss seeing everyone there. I'm looking forward to seeing Paul, and Dr. Pilewski :) I'm also looking forward to eating at a the restaurants I LOVE there too. It's just so darn difficult to get there and for the money I could vacation somewhere a lot more fun. haha!

I still cannot believe how great I have done post transplant! 4+ years no rejection and my daily routine is so minimal. I would have never believed anyone if they had told me life would be this awesome post transplant. I didn't have "hurdles" in my recovery, I had "mountains" I had to climb. . . but I have been on  top ever since. Life is awesome, It's tough sometimes but that is what makes me grow and appreciate everything I have.

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
