Too many set backs I know its been a long time since I updated here. I am sorry for that. Things have been rough. I went back in the hospital in June because of horrible sternal pain, which is finally going away. I then went back in the hospital a couple of weeks ago because of bad stomach pains which turned out to be C-Diff. I am on the last days of the antibiotic for that and hoping it wouldn't come back. I am still dealing with dialysis 3 days a week. And am trying desperately to build up my stamina and muscle because of how weak I have been. I am just in the last few days feeling more like myself. Which has been nice. I am venturing out doing more and more. Overall, I think things are again moving in the right direction.

Doctors are Thrilled! I had my first doctors appointment Monday after coming out of the hospital. They are absolutely thrilled with my progress! Yay! I had an echo - I can't have a biopsy until after I get off the blood thinners for my blood clot - and that look great! This heart is strong and looks wonderful. I was able to get my mom and dad in to see it. They were amazed. I am working on my stamina and building my muscle strength after being in the hospital for so long. I am getting stronger and doing more each and every day. A couple on the nurses have told me it takes a week to come back for everyday you are in the hospital! Isn't that unbelievable? So, I have a ways to go! LOL Hope everyone is well. God Bless you all! http://http://
