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

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.

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-1

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.

Trust

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.

Quote #1

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?

Revelation

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.

First post of the year

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.

Shambles

Wow, I finally have time to write a blog today and it’s the perfect word shambles.

first off I hope everyone who reads my blog is doing good it’s been a month since I post one and I totally feel bad about that.

My job been keeping me really busy lately. I didn’t mind it at first but it has gotten really bad that even I don’t wanna be here anymore.

People are quiting from left to right and it’s sad. One guy I enjoy working with is leaving this Friday and one I dislike is leaving at the end of the month.

That will cause us to be three men short. Even my schedule is getting a chance to overnight shift and I now will be working from Monday to Friday with the weekends off which I don’t mind. But even with that schedule, I’ll still have to do 16 or 12-hour shift because we will still be short.

Even with all this going on, I see it as a good opportunity to make some extra money. I can now spend some time with my daughter on the weekends because she has no school. I can spend more time with my girlfriend throughout the day and I can get some errands done if needed to.

Even with all this going on, there was still something good that came out of it.

Just remember no matter what you go through, there is always something good around the corner.

Lurking in the shadows part 1

On a cold chilly night, a young man is walking the streets wishing he wasn’t broke. He was so tired of being broke, he lost track of his mind.

He often thinks of ideas but never follows through with them because he is lazy and doesn’t wanna earn it. Instead, he looks for areas that not busy so he can steal

One day, a friend call him for some help. Some old lady that lives in a nursing home was moving. She asks her, grandson, to find some young body’s so they can help move the stuff. Surprisingly the young man agrees and tags alone.

They greet the security at the gate. The security check everyone I.d, he kinda didn’t want him to check his but he ends up showing it.

When he entered the place, he notices how junky it was. He also notices money laying around the apartment but he knew he couldn’t touch it.

One hour in, he scans the whole house like he was finna come back and sadly, deep in his mind, that exactly what he was going to do but how? The place is locked down with security. But he notices the security look lazy during the day so he wonders what they look like at night.

He knew he had to come back that night or his mission to steal from the lady house would be a disaster. All he needed was a plan.

Stay tuned and find out what happens next and I hope you enjoy the read. Trying something new and I hope ill be consistent with it.
