I'm a full-time wife and mom of two adorable boys. When I'm not busy trying to keep up with them I enjoy photography, traveling, planning parties and a little bit of reading.

In February of 2008 I was diagnosed with an incurable terminal lung illness, though God promised me a full and complete healing. While we wait for His timing, we're taking it one day at a time, and standing in awe of how God's using all of this for His glory. The tough road we've traveled has given us a new perspective on the fragility of life. Memories are more important to us than ever before. The goal of this blog is to share some of our family life - the ups and downs, the joys and probably some of the pains as well. It's mostly meant as a personal journal of sorts, but you're welcome to share in it. We'd like to take this opportunity to say ...

Pulmonary Hypertension - 1

This is a four part episode of Mystery Diagnosis about Pulmonary Hypertension.


The process to diagnose me was different (not a 6 hour surgery). But I couldn't breathe anymore at that point, and was intubated for almost a week... while the docs started me on that same iv drug. But most of the rest of our lives are the same (oh - she was diagnosed at 13 after having symptoms for like 9 years, and I was diagnosed at 27 after having symptoms for 5 years)......

This clip is 5 minutes 19 seconds.
