This time of year is always difficult for me health wise. My asthma gets worse, I get a cold and it lingers for a while and it just drags me down. If we were going up to California for just another routine check up, I wouldn't be so worried. They know me. They trust me and my judgement. But Pittsburgh doesn't know me yet. Will they trust me? Or will they assume I'm just making excuses because I don't want to move? I hope that they are able to hear me and realize that I do not take this decision of transplant lightly. I know where this road is going. I know where this leads. I am just not sure if I am at the transplant part of my journey yet - and I hope they can respect that and wait this small health hiccup out, with me.
I am pleased to announce though that I am not taking naps every day. In fact, my early bedtime has helped me feel so much more full of energy that I have only had one nap since the new year started. (And that was because I was in the ER until three in the morning).
I want to thank you all for all your love and support, especially during this journey. Your prayers, messages, texts and e-mails all mean so much to me. Without you, I know that this would be even harder than it already is. Without you, I would not have made this far and would not be able to continue. So thank you, thank you, thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
Hope and Love,
