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

We rode on several rides and Lydia and Simon even braved the Haunted House. Lydia rode with Hannah and was in tears when they emerged. Simon rode with me and spent much of the time almost in my lap. I don't think they will choose to go on that ride again soon.
Hannah and the Olean Area Irish Dancers performed and did a great job. Here are some videos for you to enjoy. Pause the music player before watching the videos.
Hannah is on the far right in this video.
Hannah went to Darien Lake (an amusement park just out of Buffalo) with a friend today, so I get to recover from yesterday. I am having the best summer and I keep thanking God for all that He has blessed me with!!!!!
All my love! Nancy

We had the BEST time in Ocean City! I haven't done so much in several years. We went non-stop. We swam and boogie boarded in the Ocean, we walked and biked on the Boardwalk, we shopped, went to an awesome water park, rode amusement park rides, miniature golfed twice, visited Assateague Island where we saw several wild ponies, saw dolphins, watched a surfing competition, and ate a lot of great food. The best part was that I was able to do all of it! I didn't slow my family down once, it was amazing! I am SO BLESSED!!!!
I slept most of the way home in the car and much of the day yesterday, but it is a good exhaustion that I am feeling, a very fulfilled exhaustion!
I hope you enjoy the slide show and short videos of our trip! All my love! Nancy

Friday we went to a 4th of July party at a Country Club in Bradford, PA. Our friends, the Marshalls, invited us and though it rained a lot of the time, we had a great time. There was a lovely buffet, great music by Mick's band, Hannah enjoyed swimming in the heated pool, and there was an amazing fireworks display.
On Saturday we packed up the camper and headed to Allegany, NY to camp with our friends the Ruffners and their family. It was cool, but dry, and we had a fun and relaxing evening. We got home mid afternoon yesterday and I crashed, taking a 4 hour nap!
Today Hannah has started an acting class at our local community college. That will end Thursday, then Saturday we head to Ocean City. I can't believe it is almost here, I am so excited!
I hope you all have a wonderful week! Love you! Nancy
