I am a child of God, and someone who loves Jesus with her whole heart!
I am a wife to the love of my life, the one who saved me from myself, and is always there to catch me when I fall.
I am a mama to 2 of the sweetest boys who are 13 and 11.
I am a sister, an aunt, a sister in law, a daughter, a cousin, and a friend.

I am also diagnosed with a terminal disease called Amyloidosis, which I inherited from my dad who passed away in 2010. I say all those other things that define me first because that is how I want to be remembered.

Currently I have Amyloidosis in my heart, stomach, and nerves. As of right now there is no cure, (earthy cure that is) there is treatment that can slow down the progression. I am currently on medicine to try and do that, but the disease seems to have it’s own mind.

So what is Amyloidosis? My non medical way of explaining it is this: all of our livers produce a protein, my misfolds and turns into a glue like substance that then travels all throughout my body and settles, and when it settles it is like glue and then causes the nerves, organs and such to stop working, or working that much harder because of the glue.

God and I have many conversations on how I would like this disease to go, but we all know He has His own plans, and they are way better then mine in the long run.

Thanks for walking with me on this journey, thanks for walking me home……..
