Here I go again!


First off let me say sorry for not being on Facebook or any social media much in months. I just really needed some me time off line, and off the computer. I will be working on that tho.

Guess what? 🛩I am off on another adventure! I didn’t think I’d be traveling again. Especially so soon… 🚗 Wow! 🙉

I was asked to join my sister this time on her work trips. I will be away for about a month. I feel really blessed to be able to travel so much. I get to visit some of you and some new places as a bonus.🤝 Exciting right.! 🥳 I am overwhelmed and looking forward to it immensely. I left home yesterday and will be back sometimes mid November. I already miss my dog.

I also plan to take this opportunity to get some writing done. 🗒 I’ll have an abundance of inspiration 🤩 and some quality quiet time. I already spent six hours doing so today. It took a while but I finally got the equipment, I needed for my Mac. After losing my work due to update malfunctions, human error, and again for some unknown reasons… I’ve had a hard time getting into writting again. This time around I’m gonna be extremely overprotective of my work. 🔐 I am very determined to finish theses books! I think they will be better then before, because of the passion I have. I am putting all my heart into theses books. When they are done I hope you will enjoy.

Life is to short to let opportunities slip by. I wish I had done a lot of things differently. I did some really great things in my past so it’s not all discouraging… But I shouldn’t dwell on the past.🤭 I am who I am because of that past. I am pretty awesome too!😋 Thus, I am gonna be brave and not let fear hold me back from making the most of life. I will have courage and not hold back. I will trust God and make the most of what I have while working towards my dreams and goals. Remember- people are precious to me, especially those who I am close to. Just because I’m working on me doesn’t mean I’ll stop caring about you! 💕

👱‍♀️I feel I leaned a lot and grew in may ways on my last trip. I look forward to seeing the results and enjoying this one as well. I better get to sleep now.

Take care and be safe! God bless you today and always!

A Quick Hello


Hello there friends,

How are you doing? I was invited to travel so of course, I said yes! I got the clear from my doctors, to go. I am off on an adventure to go see my Nanna in Utah and spend time with my aunts and mom. We are driving there and back. I really like road trips. I like seeing the scenery and all the small towns. I really needed a vacation with the crazy past few years and the scare I had in July. Here is a selfie I took. Don’t worry, I am not driving, so I can post this.

We made a lot of Starbucks and other coffee stops. We visited two in every state we went through. Who doesn’t like coffee? Hmm? Hehe. I know not everyone does. I am an avid coffee drinker tho. Truthfully, I haven’t been to a Starbucks in little over a year until now. I tend to make my own coffee drinks fancy or not, at home. My go to drink is an iced Peppermint White Mocha. My mom decided to get the Pumpkin Spice Nitro. She dosen’t care for Starbucks usually. However, she found a drink she really liked. To bad it is only seasonal. Mmmm~

I saw the snake river and this real-life stagecoach. I read a lot of historical fiction and fact books. I have always wondered what one looked like in person. Now I know! It was huge! If you get a chance to see one in real life you should!

I’m home now for a bit. I didn’t get to post this till now. My phone is being bad. I went to the doctor yesterday, everything looks good. Blood levels are where they should be. I am relieved! Honestly, I was a bit nervous. I’ve had more than enough doctor visits in my opinion. The next follow up is in a month for the usual Inr check. Till then, I will work on my books, continue to clean out my house and prepare for my next trip… I don’t know when that will be but its good to be ready right? Hugs!

The Smart Watch For Me!


My cardiologist told me they highly suggested that I get a smartwatch that monitors my heart rate. I have Samsung health on my Samsung galaxy 7 active phones. That monitors my heart rate, but not constantly. That was one of the main reasons I got the Galaxy S Active phone years ago.  I tried the fit bit but it kept crashing and yet they said nothing was wrong with it…  So I figured my heart made it malfunction somehow? Thus I started looking into more expansive, and more recommended watches… Such as: Garmin, Apple, Samsung. I have a small wrist, and because of my heart past I was being picky… And I found this!  72789113_2448710285397729_5705546856516288512_nScreenshot at Oct 22 13-42-28.png

It even does an ekg so it says. I talked to my doctor and we both decided it would be a good one. It is due to come out at the end of September! Yay!

I want to get the clouded gray one above. Apparently, you can download your own face covers too like the apple and Garmin ones. Sweet! Now I just need to save up and get it. Hopefully they will have more of the one I want in stock. Everytime I look it is sold out. I must have good taste. *Giggles*  Ps. It is andriod or IOS compatible.

My blood test is in


Hello All,  Me again!

Well, who else would it be? *giggles* I have good news. You can watch the video or scroll past and read below. The video is only about two minutes long.

 

My blood levels are almost exactly where they need to be… The Spinage did the trick and you could say my PT/INR was re-set and now it should all be fine. I go back in two weeks to make sure. Woot!

Other than that I have been still cleaning… Sadly – my place was a mess, but not worthy enough one on one of those shows. You know what I am talking about right? It wouldn’t take me so long expert I am going through every little thing and throwing stuff away or setting aside for donations. Along with that, I am sorting through my computer files looking for lost books and stuff I need to organize again. While I take care of pets, run errands, update social media and of course write.  I was sick for so long I am way behind where I want to be so I am working hard to catch up and making sure I am not overdoing it. I am not the night owl I used to be, as I get stronger I will be back in full motion. Keeping a smile on my face helps. Life is stressful enough… I wanna spread smiles not stress!  I am working hard to stay positive but at times it is overwhelming.

I am an author by definition, how I live my life and how I treat it is like one would treat a book being written.  Authors are people too. Just like actors and singers. I wanna keep it “real  –  down to earth” as some may say.  I want to show you that no matter how hard things get.  You can survive this and you are not alone!

Also, yes I believe in Jesus, I do not believe I would be alive if it wasn’t for him. LITERALLY! There have been so many close calls…  I talk about my faith here and there, it is my blog/website after all. As a writer, it just comes out because it is part of who I am. Yet – I will not force my faith on you. I  believe in Love. Love can make a huge difference!  I believe Jesus died for everyone – no matter what race, gender, or choices you make. Jesus loves you. John 3:16  It is up to you what you do with that knowledge.  It is not my place to tell you what to do. It’s your life and your choice.  I do want to say tho – Miracles are real, You are loved, and you are not alone if you don’t wanna be.  Someone asked me once what if Jesus and God were not real. I answered: “f they aren’t that at least I  choose to live with hope and it gives me strength believing there is some out there with me and looking out for me.

Three weeks after…


Hello there,

Firstly, I did a faith Video blog just before my doctor’s appointment today for those of you who are interested.

Good news is everything seems good except but my blood is good so far. As I mentioned before because of the new medicine they are concerned about my PT/ INR levels. (A prothrombin time (PT) is a test used to help detect and diagnose a bleeding disorder or excessive clotting disorder; the international normalized ratio (INR) is calculated from a PT result and is used to monitor how well the blood-thinning medication (anticoagulant) warfarin (Coumadin®) working to prevent blood clots and strokes. My blood has been too thin. Which can cause internal or external and excessive bleeding, especially if I get injured.

If you are not taking blood-thinning medicines, such as warfarin, the most normal range for your PT INR is “0.8 – 1.1”. My level range to prevent stroke should be between “2.5 -3.5”. However, it has been ranging between “6.4 – 10 something”. The finger prick machine only reads up to “8 or 10” on average. I was as high as “12” in the hospital. They told me it was better to be high then low tho with testing new for my meds. Before they decided on Metropol.  I am home and have been home from the hospital for three weeks now. It has been two weeks since they changed my dose from 25mg to 50mg.   The only options to thicken my blood are: 1. Take a pill that costs me up to $600.00 out of pocket since my insurance won’t cover it. 2. Get a vitamin K shot at the ER. 3. Eat things with vitamin K in it. (Not the Elecrolite vitamin K) . For example, Spiange would be a great source of the right Vitim K. Yay!   That also saves me a ton of money which I am quite limited on right now. My Doctor decided the shot was dangerous, it may thicken my blood too much. He decided to have me to hold off on taking my medicine for a few days and eat some spinach (I Love Spinach!!! It is my most favored Veeige, no Joke!) and to be re-tested Monday… So that is the plan!

 

Also For those of you who also follow Deeply Rooted in Him and our Vlogs, I also did a new post there. http://deeplyrootedinhim.net/2019/08/11/that-did-not-go-as-i-planned

Besides all that medical stuff I am really cleaning out my apartment, catching up on my writing, my paperwork, websites, blogs, and Youtube channels… I have a lot to do but it is getting done. I am glad to be alive and getting the chance to continue working on my dreams and goals even when faced with trials and setbacks. I can not begin to express my gratitude to all of you who support me and encourage me and stand by me despite all that!

Two weeks later…


I had my second follow up with my primary doctor. After going from 25mg last week to 50mg of Metropol I’m doing much better. Yay! The only issue now is my blood is too thin on the new medication. We will work on that and I’ll be re-tested next week. Fun! Thank God it’s only a finger prick. I feel so blessed that I am doing much better and my situation wasn’t worsening. I know so many of you out there have rough lives, much harder than mine. My heart breaks for you and my prayers go out to you!

I’m finally over the sinusitis, which was a pain without antibiotics… Yay- for a stronger immune system tho! I’m still having a little energy issue… Partly because it is so hot and I’m not sleeping so great still. I miss air conditioning! Summer heats are always draining for me. Even my dog is drained… But at least my heart rhythm is good. As well as my blood pressure and pulse! Praise God! All this excitement has got me out of the house more and talking to people again. It is good to feel good!!

I’m getting back into the swing of things, working on my websites, books, and apartment more. I am reconnecting with friends. Along with adding more lets play The Sims 4 vlogs. I’ve been reluctant to mention them because to me It is just a hobby. My way of practicing talking to people while having fun.

(You can find the links at Twitter Amyjane27)

I will also do a personal vlog soon. I meant to do one today but my errands took longer then I thought they would. I am new to video blogging. I prefer to write, but after all my computer technical issues with my books… I found vlogging is a good way to take notes as well as communicate with people. You can find my personal vlogs on DeeplyRootedInHim.net on our YouTube channel only. Since I openly talk about my faith in Jesus there. Here, I try to keep you updated and talk about life without preaching as some say. I have a vlog Channel set up for this web page but the only video there’s the one from authorpalooza a couple years ago. Eventually, I’ll share the link for it here.

Anyways, thanks everyone for your support and encouragement! You all inspire me to be a better person and to work hard!

This Happened…


Hello, new and old friends. For those of you who are new, I have was born with Truncus Arteriosus, a congenital heart defect. I was the third person in the world to have my whole heart rebuilt, I have had three open-heart surgeries, been in two comas, had four stokes one of which caused me to be brain dead when I was twelve.

Here’s a short book I wrote about my medical past, including being brain dead and in a coma. On sale until September 27th.

GS&MH 3d image 1.png

https://www.amazon.com/Amy-Jane-Sandberg/e/B00NF9F0OY/

I’ve been doing great recently so I thought. Yet, I wasn’t. Things were falling back in to place but I was just sick and tired a lot. I started having what I thought were “new panic attacks”. I’ve had my fair share of varied panic attacks due to medical PTSD, they are also hereditary on my mother’s side. Theses “New Ones” tho, I had none of the usual symptoms other than my heart racing for a few mins to a couple hours. Usually, they only happened before bed and when I woke up. I had been dealing with “New Attacks” for almost a month. I had no pains and no stamina. I thought I was just out of shape, so I kept trying to be productive, but when mid-afternoon came around I was spent.

When I went to doctor for antibiotics July 16th 2019, I needed for a trip I was getting ready for. I was having one of those “new attacks”. I met a medical student who started asking me a ton of questions while waiting for the doctor. They were not unusual questions for a med student to ask me. I told him all about my history and what was going on… (I was there anyways right. Just be honest and tell him I’m having a new panic attack.) He then asked me more random questions. I don’t remember them all. I told him what I told you above, he took my vitals then left the room to get my primary. Who in turn came in to immediately run an EKG- Electrocardiography -It’s a test that records the electrical activity of your heart through small electrode patches that a technician, nurse, or doctor attaches to the skin of your chest, arms, and legs. My doctor then disappeared with the results and came back on the phone with my cardiologist. Honestly, at that point, I was getting scared. I called my mom and told her something was up and asked her to pray.

My doctor put my cardiologist on speaker who proceeded to tell me my heart was racing pretty fast and my rhythm was irregular. I started praying under my breath and asked how serious it was. My cardiologist told me he wasn’t able to answer that question because he’s not there and instructed that I go to the hospital with a trustworthy Truncus Arteriosus colleague of his. Because he was four hours away and his colleague was only two. I was worried and teary-eyed at that point. He told me because my heart was racing and irregular. I had three choices: 1. Go to the local Er and have them transport me via ambulance. 2. Have someone drive me as soon as possible. 3. Do nothing hope it stops but he’d rather I not risk it. I asked if I would need surgery. He said he was pretty confident it could be handed via medication. So I pulled myself together and went to tell my parents what was going on, only to find my dad already in the waiting room.

I convinced my dad to meet me at home then we’d drive the two hours there. Honestly, an Emergency Room Ambulance transfer would’ve taken longer and been a bigger hassle for everyone. My mom opted to stay home because it was already 5pm and she knew dad would probably stay the night. Someone had to watch the dogs. Even tho she wanted to be with us, I told her it was fine. I reassured her that I didn’t feel bad in any way, I was just tired. When we got there it was close to seven-thirty pm. The check-in and triage went smooth because my cardiologist had called in ahead.

At around midnight still in the Emergency Room, they gave me an IV for fluids, because I was dehydrated and drew lots of blood. After running a bunch of tests. The doctors on call told me I had a flutter in my upper arteries and my heart rhythm was out of wack. They gave me some medicine to see if they could calm my heart down and wanted me to stay overnight. I was really nervous, something like this happened to my dad a few years ago after a heart attack and he ended up needing a deifibuulator implant. They reassured me I wasn’t having the same issues as he had.

I found reading my Bible out loud calmed my heart a bit which was very good. My rhythm went from dangerous to not so good. Honestly I don’t read my Bible as often as I should. Yet, it goes where I sleep always! I find having my Bible close, especially at night gives me peace.

They soon sent me to a room and gave me a heart monitor to wear. (I posted pictures below) All night long they were coming and checking my vitals. I barely slept, I was praying non-stop, and reading my Bible.

The next morning after running more EKG tests and taking more vitals, they realized my heart rate was not changing and my rhythm was not getting better. When they first told me I had a flutter I thought they meant a generic flutter. I’ve had PVCs before, due to my odd heart so I really didn’t think anything was going on. Apparently, A flutter stands for Atrial flutter – Your heart misfires its electrical impulses, bringing on an irregular or fast heartbeat in the upper chambers of your heart. Making it to fast or to slow. To slow is more dangerous. PVCs and A-Flutter are common for CHD people. And is different from Afid which is what my dad had among other things.

Around 11 a.m. they came in to discuss a plan. Really – I didn’t have an option. If I wanted my heart rhythm to be good again without surgery of sorts. I had to agree to their plan as I describe below.Around two pm they arrived to do an ultrasound- (image using sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of my heart externally.)

Then they prepared me for a TEE (-A transesophageal echocardiography. Which is a test that produces pictures of your heart. Using high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to make detailed pictures of your heart and the arteries that lead to and from it. Unlike a standard echocardiogram, the echo transducer that produces the sound waves for TEE is attached to a thin tube that passes through your mouth, down your throat, and into your esophagus. Because the esophagus is so close to the upper chambers of the heart, very clear images of those heart structures and valves can be obtained more detail than a standard echocardiogram can give them. The sound waves are sent to your heart by the probe in your esophagus that are translated into pictures.) I was escorted to a small room after and I was given me some liquid to gargle to numb my throat, and some to swallow so they wouldn’t damage my throat. The anaesthesiologist used to be a nurse for children with Congenital Heart defects and she was talking me through it with great patience. This test had to be done In order to make sure I had no blood clots in my heart. I got panicky when my throat went numb. I thought I wasn’t breathing. (Remember, I went in sick with sinus issues, and was breathing through my mouth mostly.) The woman reminded me I had oxygen on and it was currently at 97%. She then gave me a little sedation to calm me down. While telling me that it is quite common for people to feel that way. (I wondered if that was true tho.) When I was able to swallow again, my throat still numb, I told her. She said good, and that she could see the cardiologist coming. He introduced himself, told me the plan, asked me if I was good. The next thing I knew I was waking up a couple hours later. I’m pretty sure they had said that they were going to keep me mostly awake for the TEE, but I guess they were worried I couldn’t handle it. Thus, they put me completely under. I won’t lie, I’m glad they did.

While I was sedated. They didn’t see any clots and went ahead with shocking me. Which put me back in my normal sinus rhythm and my heart rate is mostly normal now. So I was told.

My throat was sore from sinusitis, but after that, numbing stuff ect it actually felt better… My back and chest were a little sore the next few days but only because they did the defibrillator shock to reset my heart. I was in the hospital a total of five days andv six nights. All the while they closely monitored me and searched to find a bata blocker that would work on me. I’ll admit it, I cried a few times when I was alone and fear of the unknown and known overwhelmed me. When I couldn’t sleep or relax I’d flip through my Bible and read random passages writing down anything that stood out or encouraged me. Like- Mark 5:36 “Daughter, thy faith has made you whole, now go in peace.”

I was an IV blood thinner, not heparin. I don’t know the name (I’m allergic to Heparin and Warfarin. It is genetic and rare… I posted info and links below.) Along with my Coumadin just as a precaution. I was later given a shot like ENOXAPARIN (LOVENOX), DALTEPARIN (FRAGMIN): <A Low molecular weight heparin injectable anticoagulant blood thinner used for both the treatment and prevention of clots. They are produced by chemically breaking down heparin into smaller-sized molecules. But something newer instead, but non-heparin based.> Called: FONDAPARINUX (ARIXTRA): Fondaparinux is a synthetic blood thinner, acting similarly to low molecular weight heparin. It blocks the clotting activity of a blood-clotting protein (factor X), and it is administered via an injection under the skin once daily. Because at one point my vain blew from the IV leaking into my skin. I also had bruises all over too from all the blood draws they had to do. I have small picky veins from being poked since I was born.

My whole arm up to my elbow became an ugly dark purple for almost a week… They had to keep an Iv in me so they switched arms.

One of the last mornings I was there, I felt bad because I scared a phlebotomist or Iv tech when I was half asleep by being a brat. I haven’t had the best expeinces in my medical life and sometimes PTSD is a b…… I made sure I apologized and explained I wasn’t fully awake and was thinking something else was going on at the time… I think after that they were a bit scared of poking me tho… However, most the time I tried to stay positive and in a cheery mood. They were one of the best hospitals I’ve had to stay at ever.

Again, I posted links below for those of you who wanna know more…

I usually don’t talk about what goes on with me anymore. I was really shaken up. I’ve been so good for so long, with minor scares. I put off going to the doctor mainly I guess because, I was afraid of what they may say. I was also worried about my family and all we’ve been through lately. I didn’t wanna cause them more stress.

I asked so many questions. I especially asked them about a cause or trigger that could’ve avoided this happening. He said there really was none, it’s just something that happens to congenital heart patients; especially those with Truncus Arteriosus.The doctors said A Flutter can be pretty common for Trunkis Arterosis and other CHD patients. If not caught in time it can really damage your heart. I really didn’t think anything of it because I had no pain and panic attacks are common for me. It was a really scary realization of what was going on within me. It’s a good thing they caught it before it got worse. Please take care of yourself and if something doesn’t feel right or it is out of the ordinary, make sure you talk to a doctor.

I had to postpone my travel plans but it is a good thing I did. I was able to meet some wonderful people including some “Zipper Sisters ” from Facebook. I am doing so much better, just getting used to the new medication. I see a big improvement in my activity, abilities, and sleep. I’m still a bit sore and my arm is finally starting to look natural again. I am still shaken up from this experience and having issues sleeping alone at night like when I got home after my second coma….

With congenital heart defects, you need to see your cardiologist regularly. I was told I may never have another attack again, which I pray will be true! I’m going to make sure I take care of myself. I’m now on Metropol the Beta-blocker and beginning to feel like my old active self again for the most part.

God bless you all and thanks for reading and supporting me!

You are a Warrior!


Hey You-

Yes you. Guess what…. You are a warrior! Did you know that? I don’t say that lightly. I mean it whole heartedly. Life may have treated you badly. You may have been bullied. You possibly were: physically, mentally, emotionally, or even – sexually abused. You may have had a tragedy or two happen. You mY have a physical problem, or health isues… (maybe all the above.) Well I’m talking to you…. Yes, you….

Those experiences, or situations you have gone through don’t make you weak. They are not your fault, and God is not punishing you!

Mathew 9:10-13 <New American Standard Bible -NASB> Then it happened that as Jesus was reclining at the table in the house, behold, many tax collectors and sinners came and were dining with Jesus and His disciples. When the Pharisees saw this, they said to His disciples, “Why is your Teacher eating with the tax collectors and sinners?” But when Jesus heard this, He said, It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick. But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire compassion, and not sacrifice,’ for I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners.

Maybe you thought that God was mad at you, or you had bad karma… Well I want to set that straight…. Take a deep breath… This next part may be hard for you…

You need to tell others how you are feeling or when you are in need. If you don’t speak up and tell someone what’s going on. We can’t help you. Speaking out or asking for help. It takes great courage. Doing so it is important. PLEASE talk to some. Because- You matter, you are important, and you are loved.

It really angers me when I learn of people hurting others. Especially if it is physical or sexual violence. My mamma bear wants to come out and retaliate. I have been witness to some really bad people’s actions. It makes me cry for those who are hurt and hurting. Knowing how I feel about it, and knowing God loves us all <John 3:16> I can’t imagine how much more it pains God to see his children suffering an hurting each other.

If you have suffered from anything its not from God. <John 10:10> You are a survivor! You are a warrior!!! Use the trails you have been through to encourage and help others. Just being you and living your day to day life, you are an inspiration!

You are strong, you are loved and you are not alone! You are a warrior!!!

I’m back… I did a Vlog.


Hello  Everyone!

It has been a while. I know I missed you. Did you miss me? I have been taking a break from the online world for the most part. Other than some side projects, which I  will get into later.  I have been really bad and been on facebook more than this blog. I have a lot of backdating to do. (meaning I need to move things I wrote here.) Let us be real.  There is a lot I need to update and change here and elsewhere. I know not everyone uses Facebook, Instagram or social media.   Thus,  I will be working a lot on that and my books.

Moving on to the point of this post, I  did a vlog!  A video blog…  I have been practicing with a side project which I will tell you about next time.  Right now tho I would like to share this with you. This came from my heart and was really personal. It took several tries to finish and I was really nervous.  Here it is from the other blog and ministry I  am doing with people:

drihblogscreenshot

DeeplyRootedInHim.net

 

Every year or on my other blog I reflect on my life and I write about the growth I have been through. This year I decided to do something different based on the ministry we are getting off the ground. I  did my third official Vlog,  where I  am on camera speaking to you all. I was really nervous. I pray that me stepping out in faith really bless you all. I love you! You  Matter!  Don’t forget that…

Here are the references she mentioned in the video.

Book review:   Of  God Supplies And Miracles Happen

Categories: Christian Living & Devotional, NonFiction, Religion & Spirituality, Self-Help & Motivational, Spirituality & Philosophy

“God Supplies And Miracles Happen is a poignant, moving and inspirational memoir that will take readers on a thought-provoking journey while entertaining them at the same time. God Supplies And Miracles Happen is written by author Amy Jane Sandberg and Amy throughout God Supplies And Miracles Happen will take her readers on the journey of her life from past to present. The journey the reader will encounter is at times heartbreaking because of Amy’s condition and the events that significantly impacted her life however it is also an uplifting book in which Amy will make you smile thanks to her positive outlook and inspiring passages. If you are a reader who is looking to read a memoir that is unlike anything you have read before and a memoir that is the perfect combination of inspiration, fact, and poignancy then God Supplies And Miracles Happen is the book for you and should not be missed.

God Supplies And Miracles Happen is written by the incredible Amy Jane Sandberg and in her book she shares her story and the many pivotal moments in her life. Amy ‘is the third person to have her heart completely re-built after being born with Truncus Arteriosus’ and in her book she shares all about this as well as the grace of God. Throughout the book, Amy will share how she had three strokes, has been in two comas and so much more and her story is incredibly inspirational and should not be missed book lovers.

God Supplies And Miracles Happen is a poignant, moving, and compelling piece of nonfiction that will help, inspire and captivate its readers from the very start until the very end. God Supplies And Miracles Happen is an influential, powerful book because it deals with the topic of Truncus Arteriosus and strokes and the subsequent emotions/impacts because of them. I believe that God Supplies And Miracles Happen will be the perfect read for those that have a heart condition or even have survived a stroke, disorder, condition or illness because Amy, although brutally honest about how she felt, still manages to inspire and inject positivity into the story. However, those that do not have a disorder, condition or illness will equally be able to enjoy the book and take away something from it thanks to the author’s wisdom and bright outlook on life.

God Supplies And Miracles Happen is an exceptional book not only for the author’s candor but also the information she has so expertly laced throughout the book. The information will help readers better understand Truncus Arteriosus and strokes and how it can affect your life physically and emotionally, and I believe that is really important because sadly these topics are not commonly discussed but they need to be so that no person ever feels alone.

Amy Jane Sandberg is a remarkable person for two reasons; the first is because she is honest and brave to write her story and the second is because she is an exceptionally talented author. Amy’s impeccable writing is a joy to read and flows beautifully throughout so that the reader will feel compelled to read non-stop. Amy is a pure literary talent, and so I applaud her for being so brilliant!

Overall God Supplies And Miracles Happen is an this insightful, informative, inspiring book and I would say if you are a reader who is interested in the topic of stokes and heart conditions and coming out the other side, then this book is for you and so God Supplies And Miracles Happen gets five stars from me!
