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!

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:

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.

📖Bible Verses:

✞ John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (New International Version)

✞ Hebrews 13:5-6 Make sure that your character is free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, “I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you,” so that we confidently say, “The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid. “What will man do to me?” (New American Standard Version)

✞ John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I have come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. (King James Version)

✞ John 10:11-12 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd sacrifices his life for the sheep. 12 A hired hand will run when he sees a wolf coming. He will abandon the sheep because they don’t belong to him and he isn’t their shepherd. And so the wolf attacks them and scatters the flock. (New Living Translation)

✞ Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (New International Version)

✞ Psalm 37:4 Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. (New International Version)

✞ 2 Timothy 2:1-2 You then, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. 2 And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others. (King James Version)

Shout out to the “AWC”


🗣 I want to give a shout out to “AWC”. I found them thanks to JJ’s Design and Creations. I’m happy to have found them. Espessily Gina Wynn! She is such a joy to work with. It has taken me months to seek out a good formatter since Amazon decided to declare my kindle book full of errors. And thus removed from Kindle Select. I was so sad… Then my personal computer broke and it took me even longer to find a formatter. Thanks to her not only do I get a pretty new kindle book, I get a nice epub and pdf version too. As well as a new friend!  She is now also a team member at A Novel Life LLC. Woot! Woot! I can not wait to finish more books so I can have her work her magic! 

 Check them out!

I give them  Five Stars!

A Blessing in Disguise.


10460458_409626842509026_944893001149176021_n

Oh Hello there,

It is that time again right… The  time to update you on all that is happening…  I can’t believe how fast time flies…

*First off: After along debate with myself and some other people. I looked into globally publishing my faith  short story “God Supplies and Miracles still Happen”. God’s  timing is always perfect. Before when I had looked into publishing on Amazon and Barns and Noble it would have cost me $200.00 each. But when I looked into it again recently I saw it  has now become free…. Seriously??? Woot!!!

So I  started proof reading my  book that was out for sale and re-formatting it for the global copy and I caught some big errors… Some how I had published the wrong copy of my book… How embarrassing…  I sure hope no one bought any of those bad copies… The story is still good. However some key things had errors. Such as:  my parents rode a train to San Francisco not a plane… Since I had some how deleted the better copy I had to start editing all over again…  This turned out to be a blessing in disguise. I increased the book by almost 10 pages… And I rearranged some things, so it flows much better. I sent the  final copy to  someone I trust to edit it further.. When I get it back I’ll re check it, make the appropriate changes and  re-publish  it on http://www.LuLu.com

Since the books I have up are glitched. I removed the links to them  for now. Once I get it back I will  re format those books and put in the new content… I have to do it for  both books.  You will be able to order copies of these exclusively  from LuLu when I put them back up… And Now  I’ll have a third copy… It will be saddle stitched.  I have to order  a copy to see how it turns out, which can take up tow weeks, and once I give the go ahead they will send it to their approval team to make sure everything is good and it is presentable to be mass produced.  That  can take up six to eight weeks. EEk! Once it is approved, which I know it will be, The book will be available  for sale and  at more then the two places.  I am so excited and Scared!!!! I never dreamed this would be so realistic and my dream is finally coming to it’s beginning… I know some of you have been waiting literally years…

*Second: Now that I have that taken care of I am back to working on the other three books. I am honestly  re- Thinking Amy Jane’s Mini Assortments… I still wanna  do it, however. I am not sure to what scale and what  exactly do I want the contents to contain now. I just don’t seem like the grand example of my work as I first thought it to be.. So while I barley work on that I am currently  working on finishing “Deeply Rooted In Him”  The next book I hope to publish and by the end of the year too….  And of course I’m working on my main. “Miracles still Happen Today”.  Both are coming along very nicely. I am debating changing  the name, of ” Miracles Still Happen Today”.  I’ll cross that road once it is done..

*Third: I found 3 of my fictions… Two of the three are mostly up  to date, which I am pleased to have printed notes on… And one that is really out of date. I don’t think I will dare even touching that one till much latter.. But now when I get burned out and fried from working on my personal and faith stories I now have another set of outlets  to work on and relive my stress.  I am so happy about that.. But  Don’t get your hopes up.. They are far from being done and I still have some plot kinks to figure out Before get get to deep into the story.

*Lastly: Thank you so much for reading and caring about my work. It means so much to me and encourages me, even-tho I revive so little comments. I am so pleased my ambition and passion matters to you even if it is the tiniest bit…  ~HUGS~

The Book Has been Published!


Hello My friends and Family,

I am so excited to tell you “A New Song” Has finally Been published!!!

I am not sure where to start. When I was asked to contribute to this book, I became excited at the opportunity to share my story, God’s story!   But as I actually sat down to write it, I became afraid, that I would not be able to convey the message properly and that I could disappoint those who may be expecting me to write a masterpiece. I am presently struggling with some books that I also am writing.  I am sure God is using this opportunity as a push. He is telling me to just do it, while using this opportunity to boost my confidence too. I know God wants me to share this story in any way that I can. He is opening new doors daily, not just for me but for you as well. We just need to walk through them – even if at times we have to crawl through.  Whatever it takes for us to move forward, keep growing, and to help others do the same.

Any ways!   Here is a note from the main editor, with the book Poster below.

Hi Everyone,

I just heard from our printer about the book’s final price for 192 pages with contributions from 53 authors, 17 photographers/artists, and a beautiful color cover with semi-exposed Wire-0 binding that allows the book to open flat.

If we order 500– the cost will be $15/book
If we order 1,000 — the cost will be $13/book

So far, I have received orders for 237.  Please let me know how many you plan to order so that I can get the best price.

Thank you,

Diane Kulkarni

A New Song Poster

I’m  so happy that is is finally here!!  There are so many awesome stories besiides mine in this book. It is a great Testament of God’s work!!! Please  check it out for yourself!  Email Diane or call her and place your order. I don’t thing it is selling online anywhere.. 😦

I can’t wait to share my story with you all!!   I love you, and God Loves you too!!

 

~Amy Jane
