Hello everybody.

I know,I have been away a long time.

But just about the time i was all inspired

and rested,I got really bad sick.

For those of you that know St.Louis turned

me down.The young lady that was in charge

of calling me didn't know much than I knew.

Am I too bad,are my spots in the wrong place?

All she knew was that they would do my lung

transplant but not the lung reduction.

So I called Houston the next morning.They

would take me or try to.We went and got another

ct scan and got it off to them.And my Dr.sent all

my records again.

So we're back to waiting again.But I don't think it's

going to be as long with them.

Meanwhile I now have a power chair like the one's

"the old people"ha,drive on t.v.!It has a horn and

everything..My son -in-law said he was going to put

pink pin stripes on it.Then I can put it on Pink Saturday.

My baby daughter got here last night to be here as long

as I need her.Now ladies,don't go getting all mushy on me.

I REALLY am not that bad yet.I don't intend to be.I just

can't do the super-woman stuff us woman usually do every

day and call it normal.

God is with me every step of this journey.He never leaves

me.But he's just not ready for me yet.

i am coming back now.I guess probably next Satuurday will

be my first day back.Or who knows I might just sneak in on you.

I love you all very much......

ann said...

My dear sweet ladies.Yall have been so very good to me.Thank you for all the prayers and the wonderful thoughts.You all keep my spirits high.You really do.
You know a very strange thing happened when St.Louis turned me down.It was like clarity.I wasn't sad for one minute.i just knew Houston is the way to go.
And when you have the friends and family behind you as I do,life is good. My family dr asked me about how I felt "knowing".i said fine,i know ev erybody will be fine.the only thing I was truly worried about was my birds.But since then I have found a WONDERFUL home for them.And they all get to stay together,even Roo.
I told my dr all my "paper work(wills,etc)and such are done."everybody,now will be ok.Now thats been a pretty good life.
She said, "you sound like you're just going on a trip." now or later,we all are.
