To A Friend.

I feel like writing and I choose you. I wanna say thank you for trusting me of what you told me today. You really didn’t have to but you did. My words to you. I feel like you’re a very strong person who can handle anything that is thrown at her, I can see it in your words, smile and your eyes. Over the years you have built up confidence, which most people can not even do. I understand everyday is a struggle for you but why give in? you doing so good for yourself and you’ve the right mindset to do anything you want. You can block the negative feeling you feel and everything else bad that comes your way. You’ve the smile to light up the room/sky, Your eyes.. you know I just love your eyes lol they’re so beautiful( OK I’ll stop) and your voice bring calmness to anyone mind . You also have a kind heart but you’re brave at the same time and I’m pretty sure you ain’t nothing to be mess with. These are just words to make you smile and I hope you have a bless day today, just remember you’re a strong young black queen and no one can break you no matter what they say. Live life with a smile on your face.

Lonely soul 4/30

Pretty nice word to use because we all can understand it.

Some days we do feel lonely. I can’t understand why but I just feel like we all get that feeling. I have a whole girlfriend, a daughter, a best friend, and a family that lives nearby but sometimes I get that lonely feeling (sometimes).

How do I get over it? I text or call them, go out for a bike ride, visit my mother who lives down the street, visit my grandparents who live next door, and many others. I also take time and play the game throughout the day and talk to my online buddy’s oh and my best-friend video call me almost every day and call me as well and you already know I talk to my girl every day.

I guess what I’m trying to say that you should never feel lonely. We may get to that point but just remember to not let it get to you.

Being a lone wolf can be good but always feeling that way can be bad.

My morning started off with rain but it’s now sunny with clouds and blue skies. I hope your day is going okay.

Been a while 4/29

Been a long time since I post a blog. Life has been busy since I post one. I did log in a few times to read a few posts or just to check my site. Some of y’all still going strong and some accounts I don’t seem to anymore but I hope they’re okay.

Allow me to tell you how my life been. I still have the same job doing security and still working at Westminster Suncoast. There were times I did wanted to leave but didn’t. I know I’ll end up leaving soon but with the new ideas we have coming soon I may end up staying but I guess we will see.

I and my girlfriend are still together. We have our ups and downs but we still going strong. I love her with her mean self 😂❤️

My daughter is doing good. Getting bigger and smarter by the day. Can hold a conversation if the topic interests her. Tons of energy lol. It seems like she never gets tired but when she out, she is out but that still my baby girl.

The family is doing well. Had a few deaths last year that hurt the family tree but I know we will make it through it in the long run. Just have to be there for one another and live what seems best through his eyes.

I haven’t really been around friends lately. I guess I’m getting to that point in my life that the company doesn’t really matter to me anymore. Few select friends still call and visit but I know the other ones just living life the best way they can.

For now, that’s all. I do have to allot plan this year and hopefully, I can keep up with my writing. I also hope everyone is being safe during this virus mess. Even though I’m still working, I still pray and hope everyone else is safe.

I hope we all had a good day and night and I’ll catch yall later.

Here are some photos of me, my girlfriend and daughter.

Heart from of friend day-7

One of my childhood friends Jasmine Gilgosch who has CHD is doing this heart week post on Facebook. I know allot of people not award of this and she gave me permission to post each one on my blog. I been following her story for a while and I believe you should too. Below is day seven and I hope we all learn something because I’ll be posting all of them.

Day #7- Hope; I have so much hope for my future. All my life I never thought I would make it as far as I have. Sometimes it was because of my heart and other times it was because of my mental health. Then there were times it was both. Either way I never, ever thought I’d get this far in life and now that I have I know no matter how scared I might get I have hope and plans for my future.

I hope to finish my degree so I can teach Kindergarten. I hope to love myself fully and completely for the rest of my life. I hope to find love and a lasting relationship/marriage. Most of all though? I hope to be a mom one day. I don’t pray much or often but when I do it’s for that. I pray and pray and pray one day I’ll be a mom. All I’ve ever wanted out of life is to be a mom and deep down in my heart I know one day that hope and dream will come true.

Day #6- Care Team; My main three doctors growing up were Dr. Quintessenza, Dr. Giroud, and Dr. Martinez. All three of these men helped save my life whether it was through performing surgery on me or having routine check ups. I’m forever thankful for everything they’ve done for me these last 25 years.

Heart week from a friend day-5

One of my childhood friend Jasmine Gilgosch who has CHD is doing this heart week post on Facebook. I know allot of people not award of this and she gave me permission to post each one on my blog. I been following her story for a while and I believe you should too. Below is day four and I hope we all learn something because I’ll be posting all of them.

Day #5- Heart Parent; My amazing, wonderful, fantastic, beautiful mother. She took me in when I was six months old and stood by my side through every doctor appointment, EKG, stress test, surgery, and everything else in between. She’s managed my medications, made my doctor appointments, made sure I had a healthy and controlled but normal life. She made sure even though I had CHD I lived like a normal kid. She gave me birthday parties at the bowling alley, movie theater, a hotel for my sweet sixteen! She let me have sleepovers and pool parties. She cooked for me and my friends, let me date, and just live life while maintaining my CHD.

I’m so thankful for this woman. She’s saved my life countless times in more ways than one and in some ways she has no idea about. I’m lucky to call her my mother. I love and miss her so much and can’t wait to see her again in July.

I been following her story for a while and I believe you should too. Below is day four and I hope we all learn something because I’ll be posting all of them.

Day #4- Heart Warrior; I am the Heart Warrior in this post. I’ve fought through so much to get here today. I’ve fought through heart related traumas as well as other traumas life has thrown my way. This last summer I had a huge wake up call and I am so, so happy to be here. I wasn’t supposed to make it to five and yet here I am. I’m finally pursuing my dreams and making a life for myself. I never thought I’d make it this far in life due to heart related and non-heart related issues. I know it’s a little late in life to get started and I still have some worries about my future but I’m determined to fight for as long as I can and make an amazing life for myself.

Heart week from a friend day-3

One of my childhood friend Jasmine Gilgosch who has CHD is doing this heart week post on Facebook. I know allot of people not award of this and she gave me permission to post each one on my blog. I been following her story for a while and I believe you should too. Below is day three and I hope we all learn something because I’ll be posting all of them.

Day #3- Surgery; I’ve had 3 open heart surgeries and they are as follows:

BT Shunt- I was a day old when they performed this surgery. This was the one where they called up to Boston. Essentially during this surgery the surgeon inserts an artificial tube to provide blood flow to the lungs.

Hemi-Fontan I was a year old when this was performed. This surgery is a preparatory surgery for the final Fontan procedure. During this surgery they focus on the superior vena cava (SVC) with the branch pulmonary arteries, augmentation of the central pulmonary arteries, occlusion of the inflow of the SVC into the right atrium, and elimination of other sources of pulmonary blood flow.

Fontan- I was two years old for this procedure. This surgery connects the pulmonary artery and the inferior vena cava. Once this producer is done oxygen-rich and oxygen-poor blood no longer mix. Unfortunately, there is a down side to the Fontan. Though it’s life saving it causes issues later in life. All Fontan patients will suffer some sort of liver issues in life. It can be minor or major. The price we have to pay to live.

I’ve also had 11 heart caths over the years. The most recent being June of 2018.

Keep in mind surgeries and heart caths are NOT A CURE. They are a temporary fix.

Heart week from a friend day-2

One of my childhood friend Jasmine Gilgosch who has CHD is doing this heart week post on Facebook. I know allot of people not award of this and she gave me permission to post each one on my blog. I been following her story for a while and I believe you should too. Below is day two and I hope we all learn something because I’ll be posting all of them today .

Day #2- Hospital(s); I was born in Bradenton but once they discovered I was a severe case I was rushed over to All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg. I’m so thankful for everyone at ACH. Granted, my first surgery was performed while a phone call up to Boston was being held since no one knew enough to do the surgery all on their own. They learned over time and I’m so blessed to have been put into the hands of the doctors I was and the hospital it once was.

This past summer I had my most recent heart cath at St. Joseph’s in Tampa. My nurses were amazing and the doctor who spoke to me was firm but kind. The only complaint I have about that hospital is the bitch, yes, bitch who performed my heart cath. I’m thankful she did a good job but her bedside manner was HORRIBLE. I guess that’s adult doctors for ya.
