At least I am Here
                Hi all,

   Time for my update.  The apple orvhard was wonderful this weekend.  Sunday I spend most od the day reading on the couch while Dane watched football.  Mondsy I had labs and a biopsy.  Keilee went with me and we visited a few heart patients and she met a heart transplant survivor that works on the cath lab.  It was a grest day but I was tired.  Oh I also had an eye doc appointment.
  Ok Ok Ok here are the updates/results.  Zero on my biopsy/no rejection which is great news.  My hemoglobin levels are stable but not coming up so I am still anemic.  My doc has done special tests and found out that my body is has the iron and making what it needs to in order to produce hemoglobin but for some reason it isn’t quite happening.  Thry are playing with my meds to see if it is cause.  My labs also showed that my white blood cell counts are dangerously low.  Thy are thinking that is a medication effect too so we are switching more around.  Because of that I am quarrentined to the house with no visiters until my levels come up.  I re-test tomorrow and Monday.  My stomach has also been a real problem so I am trying to go with a more bland diet for a while, but it will be hard.  I love my fruits and veggies.  Oh can’t forget te chocolate.

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.
