Eleven Years!!!

I am so sorry, im a little ashamed when I saw my last post was almost over a year ago. Well take a deep breathe...I’m still healthy and happy and going strong. I recovered after 2 treatment of soul solumedral (IV STERIOD). The treatments sucked and I was grateful for them. I ended up losing about 15% FEV1 which just took some getting used to. I’m still at 74-77% but I haven’t hit the 90% since the rejection. I was so scared I was not going to around for my 10 yr transplant anniversary, my heart was broken as much or more than my lungs were. I recovered and celebrated my 10yr healthy and rejection free. Last month on Dec.10th I celebrated with a small party with family....11 years now...I hope to keep on hitting my goal to live and retire with my true love bryan.

2018 was a good year though. I stayed healthy.discovered new talents. And....oh wait....we came back From UPMC in July 2017 (after I was rejection free) Bryan and I BOUGHT A HOUSE (another one -we sold our first house right before the transplant. We technically sold everything we had that was worth anything & spent years to get back to where we were before I got sick. We purchased our 2nd home at the same time of year we sold our first home It was honestly 10 years when we gave up everything  with FAITH there wa a miracle waiting for me across the country.

Transplant life is amazing...and challenging.some days are easy and the hard days are hard.
I’m so thankful that God hears my prayers and will In fact answer  them...then let’s us choose whether to follow him With  faith or not.

So since aug we have been a host family for a 16year
It’s a neat opportunity to learn about Germany.

Quick usage. Love y’all,, happy new year 2019!!!!!!

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
