Last Day of School – May 31, 2019

Today was the last day of school, and it couldn’t have gone better. I officially survived my sophomore year (10th grade) of High School! I did fine academically this year, which is unexpected. Another thing surprising is how well I adjusted back into life. This school year was different from all the other school years … Continue reading Last Day of School – May 31, 2019 Read More

It’s approaching the last day of school with only two weeks left, and that means yearbooks will be distributed soon. Suprise, yearbooks will be distributed tomorrow! In case you don’t know, I’m going to be featured in the yearbook. Someone came to interview me on January 10, 2019 and take a picture of me on … Continue reading May 21, 2019 Read More

Today I had a full night of sleep, which is awesome. When I woke up, my undershirt was pulled above my chest, and my hand was on my chest. My scar is still sore, but not as sore as it used to be last year. Reflecting back, exactly one year ago from today, I experienced … Continue reading May 11, 2019 Read More

Every since the biopsy (April 24, 2019) my heart’s been acting a little weird. Sometimes I feel palpitations, like the ones that occurred right after transplant. While swimming today, my heart had full on palpitations, which is weird, since I didn’t even do any strenuous exercise. I decided to take today easy. Even with a … Continue reading May 4, 2019 Read More

April 30, 2019 – Cookbook Release

I released my cookbook today (and it was AMAZING). Yesterday I was so excited that I stayed up late jamming to Hannah Montana. Today at 2 PM I  left school and met Sammie, Kina, and Ray at the quad. Sammie drove us to my house, and at 2:30 there was a limo in front of … Continue reading April 30, 2019 – Cookbook Release Read More

The Promise Land -April 27, 2019

Hello, world! Today is exactly one year since my heart transplant. I cannot emphasize how important today is. The one year mark is my promise land: filled with happiness, liberty, and freedom. I want to recap with what I was doing on April 27, 2018. During Spring Break I was at Stanford for another procedure. … Continue reading The Promise Land -April 27, 2019 Read More

Today I took my meds at 9:50 AM. I swear my alarm didn’t go off. I also checked the app and it said “every day”. Maybe I’m being hypocritical right now but I swear it wasn’t my fault! Read More

April 5, 2019

Today sucks. I had another orthodontist appointment today, and they put a rubber band in my mouth. What? This is what it looks like: This is absolutely social suicide. I have to go to school and what will people think? “Why does he always cover his mouth when he speaks?” I have to talk all … Continue reading April 5, 2019 Read More

Today my mom got her car windows tinted. I know that she already got her windows tinted March 16, 2019, but this time she got her windows tinted to the max. It’s illegal to fully tint the front windows, but the back windows are completely dark. It’s totally gonna protect me from the sun. My … Continue reading April 1, 2019 Read More

Today I had another doctor’s appointment with my oncologist. My last appointment with him was October 16, 2018. Although I don’t have cancer, I meet with an oncologist. One of my medications, Gleevec, is typically used to treat leukemia, but for me it treats my hypereosinophilic syndrome. I introduced my blog to Kelly, and she … Continue reading April 1, 2019 Read More
