I will give you a new heart, and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone, and give you a heart of flesh.

May 9, 2011

I know that it has been a while since I posted anything.. So let me first say that I am sorry once again for the long pause.
I have been doing well!!!! I have had more energy since I got out of the hospital. You would think that, that would result in more frequent posts, however I have stayed busy and really as far as my health has been concerned there have been no changes. We continue to wait for the call that tells us that they have a new heart f0r me, and in the meantime try and keep me feeling as well as I can and hopefully out of the hospital. Right now that is all that they can do.
I was given a pass for the weekend to go (home) to East Texas from my doctor. As long as I kept my pager and phone with me at all times. Well the call did not come, so we were able to spend the weekend with friends and family. It has been 6 months since we have been able to go home, and if you know Travis and I at all you know that that is a LONG TIME!!!!!
We had a great time!!!! During the weekend I KNEW that I needed to stop going and chill for a bit, but I kept on pushing. So today when I had my checkup I got in trouble....I had extra fluid retention, and they could tell that I was run down. I was told to stop, and rest....they were not happy with me today.. they also asked me what I was going to do with the kids during the summer. She said that I needed to make a plan, because they only have 3 full weeks left of school. She said that I could not have the kids here everyday by myself. So even though I am feeling OK at the moment I am having to make arrangements for my kids during the summer.. Most families look forward to having summer vacations, and here I am being told that I can't keep my kids. How sad...right.
On the other hand maybe with the kids taken care of GOD will give us a heart!!!! Even though I have felt a little better, I can feel myself continue to get a little worse. It is hard to explain. I can just tell.
Anyway that is really all that is going on in our household right now.. I love you all and thank you for all of the continued prayers. I go back to the doctor on the 20Th of this month. They have me alternating with the Nurse Practitioner, and my Cardiologist every other week, so I am seen by someone every two weeks... what fun!!! I know that the Lord has a plan in all of this, and I am continuing to trust in HIM!!!!!
