I second what Judy and Ginny said, you are the strongest and most positive woman I know! We all want this transplant for you so badly, because you deserve it, and so you get back to chasing good looking men. I don't suppose there are too many of them floating around that hospital, huh?
Seriously though, I too am praying for you to get strong and get in there to have this lung transplant that you so deserve! And when you do we all need to meet up and have a big celebration in your honor! Hang in there lady, you're the best!
Hugs from Texas,
It's good to hear from you! As always, Carol, your spirit, strength, humor and compassion for others comes through - even under these most difficult and despicable circumstances. I would probably be flinging bedpans. You are an inspiring example of GRACE UNDER FIRE. I really mean that. Prayers and ((((hugs))) and all manner of good positive energy to you. Hold on.
Hi Carol, we don't know each other but you are in my thoughts and prayers. I've been in and out of the hospital since last Sept. with lupus pneumonitis and I now have my first nephrology appt tomorrow as my urine is showing 2+protein. I have interstitial cystitis, so I'm used to having things in my urine, but never protein. I get so tired of being sick- I just got a new rheumy who had me get all the lupus labs known to man but now she is out til April due to surgery so I sit here waiting. Wondering what's up next.
I'm so sorry to hear about your father's passing. I've lost both of my parents and miss them still, especially my mom. I think it's good that your mom wants to wait for a memorial service until you and your brother can make it there. Hang in there. God gives us what we can handle and you need to put yourself into His arms. I try to remember this when I have so much pain that I can't even get up to see my 10 year old son off to school in the morning (like this morning).
Know that there are a lot of people out there praying for you and I especially pray for you to be free of pain and find comfort. ((((Hugs)))) Sandy
