This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

The title of today's entry is one of my favorite passages from the Bible.
I am so grateful to be alive!
My mom is feeling so much better.She is out of the hospital and recovering at home.She has decided to not move back to Connecticut.Her decision had us all a little concerned but the truth is my mom loves her independence.She is not ready to "have to live with someone". Not yet ,not today.It was an odd situation that brought her decision about and it's way to long to get into on here.I have faith .She is being taken looked after.
As for me,well it's my birthday today.I don't hide my age.I am 46 and I am proud to say so.I don't feel like I am getting older physically and that really is a blessing.The true miracle is that I have lived to see this age.Having PH has given me to opportunity to see miracles everyday . I am the miracle today,,woohoo !!!
I was diagnosed when I was 24 and was told I wouldn't live more than 2 years without a transplant.Well here I am 20 + years later and I am ALIVE & KICKING.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! It is a day to celebrate and to reflect on the miracle of your successful treatment. Praise the Lord and may He bless you with 46 more productive years. You are an inspiration and a blessing to everyone you meet.

Glad to hear that your mother's health is stable enough for her to be in her own home.

Enjoy the rest of your special day.
