"My flesh and my heart may fail, but GOD is the strength of my heart and my portion forever" -Psalm 73:26
Diagnosed with Late Stage Neurological Lyme Disease in 2008 after being sick for 2 years. It's now been 9 years since I was diagnosed and I am still fighting. I was diagnosed at age 15 and am now 24. In March of this year, I got sepsis from my port and almost lost my life from the infection and damage it caused. I was on dialysis for kidney failure, had liver failure, heart failure, a mass the size of a plum in my heart, a damaged heart valve, and so much more. I had open heart surgery on April 3rd, 2017 and have now had 4 more heart surgeries since then. Because of the extensive open heart surgery, my heart now relies on a pacemaker to beat at all. During the open heart surgery, they had to replace my tricuspid heart valve with a mechanical one. I've spent almost 3 months in the Heart Hospital since March/April. It's been very difficult, but God has a plan and He is always good! I will praise Him in this storm!
