Another Lung Transplant Update (Great News!!!!!!)
For those who have been trekking with me theses past few years (5 to be exact) and hearing me speak about my health issues. I have an update. But before I do, I want to thank each every one of you for your prayers, kind words of encouragement and love that you have shown me and my family.
As I let you know a few weeks ago that on May 9th I would find out if i’m on the Lung Transplant/heart valve replacement list. And by God’s grace and mercy…….I got the news this morning that…..drum roll…..I’M APPROVED!!!!!!!.My wife and I were so messed up last night and nervous. I tossed and turned all night long. Plus, I was so out of it today. Until I got the news that they approved me. Now I’m in shock. LOL!
My wife got the call this morning that I was approved for a Lung Trasnplant/Heart Valve repair and next year a kidney transplant. 7 months of testing and 5 years of going through the unthinkable at times. Many prayers and tears have been shed to this point from me. Many times I asked the Lord to either let me go or heal me. That’s how much I was in pain many times. One thing I had to learn was that 1. GOD is in control 2. It’s on his time. 3. His will is perfect no matter what happens. 4. I was so selfish in my desires I could only look at what I wanted. Rather look at what it good great for GOD’s kingdom, my well being and humanity for that fact.
I thank you all for the prayers once again. It’s by your faith from all you that I recieved this praise report. GOD does heal. GOD does perform miracles.
So thankful to my wife Teresa Chu for sticking by my side all these years and being a warrior. Without her I know for a fact I wouldn’t be here. I love her and always will.
