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 one and I hope we all learn something because I’ll be posting all of them today.
HEART WEEK IS FINALLY HERE!!
Day #1- Diagnosis; Hypoplastic Right Heart Syndrome with pulmonary artery atresia. When I was born the right side of my heart was pretty much non existent with this specific kind when I was born the pulmonary valve between the right ventricle and pulmonary artery is not formed. This was very scary back in 1993. It’s still sad when someone is diagnosed with CHD but back then there was no way to really detect it and doctors didn’t know to look for it so I was literally born and apparently wasn’t breathing like any normal baby should have been. It was a rough start from the beginning but I’ve clearly and thankfully made it through.
A new diagnosis that isn’t 100% heart related but can be and is still concerning recently came to me this summer. I had blood clots sitting in my left lung for years apparently and though my hospital stay helped to break them down because they had been sitting for so long I’m now missing the lower lobe of my left lung and unfortunately that’s permanent damage.
My body was already slowing down due to the natural effects of my CHD but losing half a lung definitely hasn’t helped. I still push through and make the most of this life I was blessed to live every single day.
When I saw that this was the first word of the day, I thought of my girlfriend.
Since most people betrayed me before we got together. So most likely I’d to learn how to trust again.
She even notices herself that my trust was mess up and I’m glad she wasn’t afraid to mention that to me because she could have left a while back and it also allow myself to work on myself.
Deep down inside I knew I trusted her because she basically tells me everything that involves in her life. Any small problem or big she calls. No matter the time she always calls and I’m right there to listen and help the best way I can.
I started to realize she is really honest. And she trusts me to allot too.
No matter the situation, don’t allow someone from your past who treated you bad put an awful taste in people because you met that one bad person. It’ll have you thinking nonstop and make everything weird when you trying to get to know that person.
Today is going okay, trying to get some gaming in and so far it’s going well. If you reading this I hope you’re having a good day.
I was messing around on Facebook until I saw some inspiration words that I’d to share. It didn’t say who made the quote but I can tell they have a smart understanding about life and probably went though somethings. But here is the quote and I hope you’re having a good Sunday.
You might be poor, your shoes might be broken, but your mind is a palace.
Some good words eh?
Never think you’ll not be surprised by something in life.
I remember when I finally introduce my girlfriend to my daughter I already knew she can say half of her name.
I was wrong lol. My girlfriend asks what your name and she actually said it correctly and I was surprised. All the times when random people ask for her name she always said the ending of it never the beginning.
She never said her name like that before or just not around me.
Like on Saturday when she came over, my grandmother asked her the same question just for the fun of it and again she said it correctly.
Even though she is growing so fast, I’ve to remember the older she gets the more things she can do in life. Now I’m going to teach her how to say her last name and that Pugh. Over the years I always had to correct someone and I know she’ll have to do the same. By the way, the U is silent.
Certain things are going to surprise you but all you can do is put a smile on your face… If its back good one though.
If you reading this, I hope you enjoy your day today.
There is a lot of possibilities in this world we live in
Like last night, for example, there was a possibility that my coworker was probably going to be late last night but he wasn’t it surprised me and my other coworkers because for the past month he has been coming in 5 to 10 minutes late. So we all just assumed he was not going to make it on time.
Another example like on Saturday. I was babysitting my daughter. For two whole hours, she was fighting her sleep, there was a good possibility that she was going to fight her sleep if I haven’t got her three slices of pizza and two bowls of ice cream. But guess what she slowly fell asleep. Which was funny to me because I asked her three times was you sleepy and she kept saying no… Kids lol.
Always remember there’s a lot of possibilities in this world. You never know what’s going to happen all you could do this live your life.
to whoever is reading this I hope you had a good day and I hope you have a wonderful night.
I said to myself I’ll try to post something every day at the beginning of the year, but as you can see that didn’t happen.
The year has been busy so far for me, well it’s kinda my job that keeps me busy. I’ve been working 6 days a week with a double on Sundays since the beginning of the year but at the same time, life is still going well. Plus that’s going to change soon.
I finally interduce my daughter to my girlfriend and I can tell they’re going to be good friends. I and my girlfriend is also doing well. Been together 8 months so far and it’s all love. Planning something nice for her on valentine’s day and I hope she loves it.
My family members are also doing well. Been taking my little nephew to his bus stop lately and I see it as a bonding moment. My great uncle is getting married and invited me and my girlfriend. I said yes but didn’t realize his wedding was gonna be in Baltimore. I and my girlfriend both agree to go and fly on the plane for the very first time but it should be a fun trip.
Co-parenting is going well too. I feel like me and the mother of my daughter been on good sides lately and that’s good in my books. Plus I told her about my girlfriend and she is happy for me.
So far life is keeping me busy but I still enjoy the small moments.
I hope everyone who reads this is having a good year so far and I wish you a good morning.
I always try my best to keep the promises I make to my girlfriend, my daughter, and friends.
I feel like it’s important for you to keep your promises no matter what and if you know for a fact that you can’t. Then you shouldn’t make one.
Some people are serious about taking the oath and keeping their promise and you should too. Even if it sounds a bit to the extreme.
I always try to make promises I know I’m going to keep. Simple that way.
Like my daughter for an example, I sometimes promise her that I’ll take her to the park that she loves or take her to the movies. When that day comes, she remembers that I told her that will take her( which I find cool).
Or my girlfriend, when we first got together, I promise her I’ll buy a Pandora set later on in the relationship and I did just that. And she still wears it till this day and still loves it.
Keeping your oath is also a good feeling. Just seeing their smile always reminds me of why I try my best to keep my promises.
I hope everyone is having a good day. I plan on watching soul eater on YouTube until I go home. Came in on my day off. Kinda just started it and it seems good so far but I hope you’re having a good day.
Nice word to use today.
Earlier today my girlfriend receive a message from her baby daddy mother. It was about the PlayStation 4 we got him for Christmas.
You probably think it was a positive message but it wasn’t. Just negative. She didn’t like that we got it from the pawn shop. We didn’t want him to break it so we thought that will be the best bet was to get a used one.
I told my girlfriend people with negative souls will always have a bad aura. No matter what words someone who is negative use, you just have to box them out.
I watch my girlfriend do everything she can for her son, I even help her when I’m able. But it seems like no matter what you do, their always that one person to speak badly about you then talk negatively like you not there for them when they ask for help.
I know we all have those types of people in our lives and it cannot be help. You’ll just have to box them out. Just ignore them. When they not making your life better or even putting money in your pockets just ignore them.
Negative people will always be around, just box them out and let’s hope they leave you alone.
I hope everyone had a great Christmas and I you a very good day.
I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and happy holidays to you and your family.
I really do hope everyone is having a good morning so far and I wish everyone a bless and safe day if you’ve to work.
I remember ever since I was a little kid, my grandparents always woke me and my siblings up at 0700 every Christmas to open gifts.
I remember it was always fun opening up games or getting new bikes and much other stuff I enjoy getting as a kid.
I also remember getting gifts and money from other family members but all that change when I got older.
I don’t really feel the Christmas spirit like I did when I was little but I also know I’m not the only one.
Even though I have a daughter, I should feel some type of spirit but nope! My daughter mother side of the family don’t celebrate and I also work tomorrow so that sucks.
If you feel like me, try your best to get in the spirit, buy gifts for people you actually wanna see happy. If you work? Spend some time with your loved ones before you go and if you’ve kids, be ready to smile and take a lot of pictures. Like tonight I’ve to set up my little nephew leapfrog when I get home from work and I can’t wait to see him smile.
I hope tomorrow be a good day for everyone, and if you can make someone smile, do it! Never know how their Christmas going.
