Save The Arizona 98

I usually have avoided doing anything too political on my sometimes blog. I have tried to focus on general things and what is happening in my life. I feel that being too critical of any body for what they do politically is their business as I feel what I do politically, is my business. This […]

December Is Still Mad

I was going to do some work on decorating the house for Christmas, but decided to wait for tomoorrow. I needed the rest. I was sick this week with an upset stomach or stomach flu of some sort and only now am feeling more like I did before I got sock. Believe it or not, […]

A Great Story

You never know where you will find some reason to live and enjoy the lives we have. Here’s a little something that should give you a lift today. A Sign of the Heart Before my heart transplant, I was drawn to a special boy who appeared to me in a dream. Was he the donor […]

Some Things I’ve Noticed Lately

I was at a Wal-Mart in my hometown just recently (who hasn’t been in a Wal-Mart lately) and saw that they are revamping the store. In the process I’ve noticed that the prices are on the rise, especially in clothes. They might be in trouble here, since their base has been with people that shop […]

Be Careful With The Prescription Drug Plan

As many of you may know, I am a heart-lung transplant recipient and take a very expensive medication to help me keep my new organs. I was receiving that medication from one place for only a shipping fee until the Medicare prescription plan came into effect. I switched to the plan I now have in […]

Working Around An Illegal Duck

Well, today I was working around the yard: you know, putting weed and feed on the grass. Just like a real suburban homemaker. I can actually say it was enjoyable. I never thought I’d end up doing stuff like this. Before the transplant I couldn’t walk a hundred feet, much less push a lawn spreader […]

Transplant Warriors

This isn’t a phrase I coined to describe those who are waiting, or have received a transplant (In my case a heart-lung). But a moderator of an online support group that I recently joined called those who go through the process warriors. I agree. I think anyone who goes through any transplant: heart, lung, kidney, […]
