. . . . . . One Year of Miracles, Learning and Growth

One year ago today, at this very moment, I was being prepped to go into surgery, for what I thought would be the only procedure I needed, followed by 5 days of recovery in the hospital. Now, looking back on it all, it is surreal, and it is still hard to believe.

My life is a miracle, or a series of miracles. It is through the prayers, fasting and help of hundreds of people that I lived and my family survived. To recall how we have changed and grown is a monumental task. It would be far easier to recount the few things that are still the same in our lives.

As for me, I am a changed person. My few physical changes cannot demonstrate the massive reconstruction that has gone on within me. Though it appears I am back to "Normal", I know I will never be the same.

Today I will be back at the hospital, for an appointment checking on my paraylsis, hearing and progress. If I am brave enough, I plan to go to the Neuro unit and walk the halls. I know it will be emotional, but I need to do it.

If I ever go back to the blog archives and re-read the events of one year ago, it is nearly too much to ingest. The challenges, faith and miracles still amaze me. Words cannot adequately deetail the experiences, lessons and miracles. At this stage, all I can do is thank God for my life, and thank all of you for your prayers, faith and ministering. Life is a blessing, live it that way!
