Happy Mother’s Day
                Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers!!! Yesterday was a very productive day.  All my parents came down to help Dane clean up the yard, plant gardens, and they set up a rain barrel!  I wasn’t much help and quickly got tired just supervising, but I am hoping that is close to the last time that will happen.  My wonderful heart survivor friend Keilee told me to appreciate digging in the dirt because it might be the last time for a long time to touch dirt, which is weird to think.  I am starting to have a hard time falling asleep because of anxiety thinking the phone is going to ring in the middle of the night.  Thank God for my ipod and Enya.  I wish that this waiting game wasn’t such a obsticle in my families summer.  I know they don’t see it that way, but it is sad to know that my health is affecting other people so much.    I change my mind all the time about being excited or terrified for my call.  One minute I want to just do it and get it over with but the next I don’t want to have it yet because I am content just resting and being with Dane and Lizzy.  It is only until I stand up and walk to fast down the hall that I realize why I need the transplant.  I don’t want to be uncomfortable, in pain, or apart from Lizzy and my family, but I want my life back.
If you love your mother or are a mother, do something good for your heart today.  You won’t regret it!

I am a 33 year old girl (I say girl because I act and look young all the time) who has had heart disease her whole life. In the last few years I have had severe congestive heart failure and in August of this year recieved a heart transplant. This is my journey to be girl/woman who I could never have been before. I plan to set outstanding goals and achievements and hope people support me along the way good or bad.
