Hello World!

So it will soon be 2011! Yes, hopefully a good year because the last 2... not wonderful overall. Of course Every year has its ups and downs I just think I've had a few more downs than ups.

Jan: Rang in the New Year with Thibaut. A guy I had been dating that could of really gone somewhere... (Positive, believe it or not).
Feb: My 23rd Birthday and Tucker was my Birthday gift! (Definetly a Positive)
March: Hospitalized and placed on 24 hour oxygen, indefinetly (Negative)
April: The Guy from New Years, Thibaut, Moved back to Australia. Where he is from. Broken heart. (Negative)
May: Finally Graduated college!! (BIG Positive)
June: My Dad is diagnosed with Stage 4 terminal cancer. (GIGANTIC Negative)
July: Hospitalized again because of Cystic Fibrosis (Negative)
August: Uneventful. (Neutral)
September: Losing too much weight and sick again, Hospital for a Medi-port placement and Feeding tube placement. (Sucky, Negative)
October: Developed Pneumonia, actually at the end of Sept. Sent to the ICU and put on a ventilator. My family was told the prognosis didn't look good and to expect the worst. I have no memory of this month at all. (NEGATIVE!)
November: Thanks to my Family and Doctors for not giving up and doing everything possible, I come back to life! Have to relearn how to eat and walk. Regain bladder control and build some muscle. Get to go home mid-month (Positive!)
December: Started Pulmonary Rehab/Physical Therapy. Began my Transplant work up. Also Tucker's 1st Birthday! (Positive)

Feb: My 24th Birthday! Almost didn't get to see this. (Huge Postive!)
March: Uneventful (More Neutral)
April: Finish the Transplant work-up and begin the wait to hear if I qualify to be on the Transplant list. Stressful! (Positive for the work-up being done and Negative for the waiting)
May: Vacation! Much needed. Also heard on May 20th I was officially on the Transplant List (Positive!)
June: Hspitalized for a CF excerbation. (Negative)
July: 7/4 is the anniversary date of when the whole family was told of my Dads cancer. Kind of a bummer day. (Semi-negative)
