These past few days have been a whirlwind. Monday was testing in Charleston, and my oldest sons birthday, and then Tuesday we got the results and drove home. Being down there for 3 days, I was unable to take my water pills and I have swelled up to about a 30-40 pound fluid holding. Unfortunately I woke up to a swollen eye (which turned out to be shingles) so I couldn’t take the water pills, tomorrow I will and praying this fluid starts to leave and gives me some relief.

Tuesday morning, (my appointment was in the afternoon) I had several friends text me to let me know they were praying and we were loved. I took all them into the appointment with me, and I was ok with either result. We had prayed that God would swing the door open for the trial or close it. I had a meeting with them around 12, and my sister asked what way we were leaning and I had no clue, because God was going to decide.

I AM STABLE!!!! For the first time since being diagnosed with Amyloidosis I AM STABLE!!! I am still have the same restrictions I had, and the damage that is done is done. How he explained it to me is that every 2nd exam we should see small progression but if the medicine continues to work thats how it should be. It has slowed down the progression. I am not saying the medicine isn’t working, but I know I had a lot of people praying for this appointment, like I told him I know a God that is working, and clearly still wants me here for awhile.

I was quiet all the way home, because God and I were talking. Would I have really been ok if it went the other way, I wanted to make sure that Him and I were in a place where He is helping me surrender to His will and not my own.

I am forever thankful for my friends, who constantly lift me up. I don’t think they understand the impact they made on not only but my family. I am thankful for my family who sat in cars waiting, hung out at Walmart’s while waiting and took the trip with me.

STABLE, I AM STABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
