I was given this piece of advice at my doctors appointment - I thought it was very wise! Those who know me, know that I have a tendency to let my mind wander into worst-case-scenario-ville when it comes to my health. I have been through a lot but have always been blessed with tremendous, more than perfect outcomes. At times, my faith falters and I find myself in this same cycle of worry when I have so much to be grateful for. With my pregnancy, things are going awesome. I haven't had any problems to speak of and that isn't the case with any woman, not just a post-transplant woman. So I have had many, many moments of amazing gratitude. But anytime I have a weird pain or a headache, my mind jumps again to the what if's of my situation. I was explaining so of my symptoms to my doctor and she responded, "Don't worry your joy away!" It was exactly what I needed to hear. After my dearest friend lost her little baby, she basically gave me the same advice - I was just too stubborn to listen. This life is our to live and live happily if we choose. And it's a choice we have to make daily!
