Forever Healthy & Fit:
Well, Good morning! It has been since November that I have posted on this page, other than a couple of quick updates on my daughter.
For those of you who may not know, my daughter had a heart and liver transplant in November at Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. This was her 6th heart surgery. She was born with several heart defects. I relocated to MN with her over the last few months. She was in the hospital following transplant for 2 months and then we remained in MN until she was strong enough to go home.
We are back now and she is doing Awesome!!! She goes to cardiac rehab 3 days a week and then with me 2 days a week to the gym for light weights. We are so proud of her and all her hard work!
I am going to start posting daily again so if you need a little extra motivation or maybe a little more knowledge about health & fitness follow my page and share with someone you care about! ~ Annie

Stacey Burgess: Cystic Fibrosis Warriors:
Jen's Journey; Embracing the Detours in Life I read this and it hit so close to home. Not too long ago I was going through this exact same roller coaster. All I have to say is don't lose hope, be relentless, and never let anyone else define what your life is going to be. We are warriors and we will fight.
Those of you who do have your good health; take care of yourself and don't take your blessings for granted.
Lets send our love and prayers to this beautiful cyster.

Journey with Joshua: Sorry everyone for the shortage of post but it's really because we've been super busy since we got home! JOSHUA had his 6th heart biopsy today since his transplant and the pressures in the heart they said were great. All of his labs were great which means we've finally got his doses at a happy place. He's lost a lot of Meds because of how well he's doing. He's been really active and just looking for someone to play with!! We're in the process of having to move out of our house because the landlord hadn't fixed some necessities that needed done to be safe for Joshua. Joshua saw his dentist and we got good and bad news! Good news is even though he hasn't seen his dentist because of chemo and heart problems with the blood thinners he has no cavities!! The bad news is we've discovered another chemo side affect, we knew Joshua ended up with a vitamin D deficiency but what we didn't know was that it shortened the roots of his teeth. Though right now it's not a problem but eventually in a few years he'll need his teeth removed! And since we've had to leave our home I had to transfer Joshua's homebound to another school district and they've never had a kid in there school homebound so we're still waiting for them to work out the details. And getting Destiney ready for kindergarten this coming year. We've had to do a lot of repairs on my car and still have tons to do to it. All this driving back and forth in my poor car to hospitals hours away I'm surprised she's still running!! Yep we've been busy but we are blessed no matter how tough the situation!! God bless everyone who's prayed for my little hero, and continues to pray!!
