Welcome friends and family!
It has been a bumpy ride, but God has given me strength, love, friendship, and, FINALLY, health. My prayers have been answered, my miracle was granted, and I want to share the joy of my new life with you.
My entries begin in April of 2008 and my double lung transplant was December 10. Scroll down to my blog archive and you can read from the beginning or jump around. If you are looking for a specific topic, you can use the search engine.
I hope I can help you to experience the love God has for each and every one of us!
May God Bless You with Miracles in Your Life! Nancy

Lots of unpacking to do. Thank God for moms! My parents will be leaving to go back to Wyoming on Friday, what will I do?
Thanks for your prayers for safe travel! Love, Nancy

My dear mother looks forward to the Oscars as others look forward to the Superbowl, so we have been planning our Oscar party all week. We have the newspaper clipping with all the nominees, the snacks and ice cream ready, and wardrobe choices made to fit right in on the red carpet.

I have a tentative date for my sinus surgery, February 17. That gives us a full week of no appointments, so we may choose to go home for another visit after my insulin pump appointment this coming Tuesday. We'll see if any other appointments crop up between now and then.
I'm still pretty tired, so it will be early to bed tonight. I start back on IV antibiotics tomorrow to treat the sinus infection. It was fun to be IV free for a few weeks anyway!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Love, Nancy

My appointment went well. Everything continues to look good and my pulmonary function tests are stable. I have been experiencing a lot of tiredness and anxiety. They assured me this was normal. My coordinator reminded us that even though I look great, it will be at least a year before I will be totally back on my feet. Everyone just needs to be patient and not push too hard (me included!).
I am going to need to have sinus surgery, so we are hopeful that can be done next week. That will put off our move home a little, but as I've said, I want to get everything done before we come home. I will let you know when the surgery gets scheduled. I'll have to stay in the hospital for a day or two after the surgery.
That is all I have to report. I am really tired and need to lay down for a while. We need to be at the hospital tomorrow morning at 7:00 a.m. for my bronchoscope, please pray that goes well.
My love to you all! Nancy

We snuggled a lot!
We played lots of games!
I directed the snowman making from the warmth of the kitchen.
I wasn't the only sleepy girl at the end of the weekend!
