A Year Ago Today

One year ago today the headaches became nearly unbearable. Advil helped, but I couldn’t keep eating it like candy. I was taken to the ER at the hospital. They saw me almost immediately. I told them what I was feeling and they told me I was going to get a CT scan.

A half hour later I had had my scan and the PA was telling me that there was something on it as I was being admitted, and that I would need surgery. I was so frightened. Today I am feeling it all over again.

I know I have come so far. It has been a year. I am a living miracle of love, science and God. I thank God every day for the path He has put me on, as difficult as it has been. It has changed my life in so many ways, and I believe the lives of others.

So today is difficult for me, and probably for others. If I see you today, know that I may cry. I am just so thankful to be able to share my life with you. It is a sad day, but also a joyous day. I am so blessed to have this day, and to have those of you who may read this. Thank you so much for loving me, praying for me, supporting me, and being a part of my journey.

I love you, my friend.
