So for anyone who knows me, knows that I am pretty private when it comes to my health and anything to do with my CF. I didn't want people to know I was different unless I told them and even then I tried to not make it that big a deal. So why do you ask am I starting this blog?
Back in February of this year I was in the hospital again (its become more frequent over the last year or so) and I was told by my doctor that it was probably time to move forward with getting a double lung transplant. I knew this day would come eventually but when its right around the corner its a little overwhelming and I am an emotional person on a normal day (ex: General Hospital can make me cry if its the right story line...I blame my mother she is emotional too) :)
So since I was in the hospital and had time on my hands I decided to google anything I could find on transplants so that I could be as informed as possible knowing exactly what I was facing. Thats when I stumbled upon my all time favorite blog Confessions of a CF Husband.
From this blog and reading the story of Nathan and his wife Tricia it gave me a little view (and believe me I know its only a glimpse) of what lies ahead for me and my husband and our families. It helped me tremendously in becoming more relaxed and positive about the road that is ahead of us. From his blog I have also found several other blogs with great success stories and I can't wait to be apart of them!
So to answer the above question, I am starting this blog mainly to keep all friends and family up to date with what is going on with me (im horrible at calling people back~~just ask my mother) health wise and to journal my journey to my new beginning with my new lungs and who knows maybe someone will stumble upon my blog one day and I can help someone out the same way Nathan, Tricia and the other bloggers helped me when they didn't even know it.
Thanks Again Everyone!!
Lungaversary Day and sick :-(
