July 1, 2020 – Annual Study

Today I had my annual study. My annual study is my biopsy, but more comprehensive because it’s done to evaluate my heart’s function at the end of the year. It was initially scheduled for April, but because of the coronavirus, it’s been rescheduled to today. Miranda, my friend from transplant camp, told me about her … Continue reading July 1, 2020 – Annual Study Read More

April 27, 2020 – 2 years!!

I cannot believe this. It’s been 2 years!! Happy transplanniversary (or second birthday)! I won’t lie, it’s been hard. But the road was worth it. I’m going to reflect back on my life, and say it’s been surreal. Every transplant recipient is a fighter. I can’t imagine how everyone else’s journey. Together, we make a … Continue reading April 27, 2020 – 2 years!! Read More

March 6, 2020 – I’m going to online school

Hi guys, so sorry for the inactivity on my blog. I’ve decided to transfer to James Madison High School. Due to the coronavirus, I don’t feel safe at school anymore.

Since I’m immunosuppressed, I really … Continue reading March 6, 2020 – I’m going to online school Read More

October 30, 2019 – Biopsy Day (Stopped Anesthesia)

(hi I read this journal entry and it’s kind of sassy for some reason so please be warned) It’s great how I push snooze on the alarm but it’s actually blood draw day so I’m technically being late to the blood draw and oops can’t do that. We love it when my mom rushes through … Continue reading October 30, 2019 – Biopsy Day (Stopped Anesthesia) Read More

October 29, 2019 – Maybe I’ll Start Running

Hi, so this isn’t really a heart transplant thing, but I thought I might share this because it’s fun. Today I met my mom’s running group. My mom told me that it was important to come because I might join the group. I’m not jumping up and down to start running. I know I was … Continue reading October 29, 2019 – Maybe I’ll Start Running Read More

Today I met Kelly from the American Heart Association. Ever since the AHA’s walk at Children’s Fairyland in Oakland (October 10, 2019), I’ve been communicating with her over email.

October 10, 2019 – AHA Walk

Today I went to the American Heart Association’s (AHA) walk at Children’s Fairyland in Oakland.

I sent an email to the American Heart Association Bay Area a long time … Continue reading October 10, 2019 – AHA Walk Read More
