I am back!!

Well here I am, I have been away so long and so much has happened. I thought this would be a good time to start back here because it is November and I have so much to be thankful for.

I went into the hospital on Jan. 26th to have a hernia surgery. I was suppose to be in there for about a week, then have some recovery time at home and go back to work about 6 weeks after that...well God had other plans.
I ended up with major complications, a number of different infections, a huge open abdominal  wound and a very long hospital stay. I was in the hospital for seven months. I went through just about everything a person could go through, from a coma, intensive care for 4 months, losing my ability to walk or hardly move, to kidney failure, a number of surgeries to a lot of physical and occupational therapy to finally home in August.
It was a very difficult time for me and for my family. They thought I was going to die but again God had other plans. I did a lot of hard work and now I am trying to be open to what God's plans are for me. I lost my job but physically I am much better. I have learned that there are so many small things I used to worry about and also learned how blessed I am. I am ever so thankful for God getting me through those 7 months, through the pain, the heartaches, the work and the fear. I was never alone. I am also thankful for the wonder family I have. They were all so supportive of me, so loving, so caring and so strong when I couldn't be. I am also thankful for the doctors and especially the nurses that kept me going and gave me such good care. It takes a very special person to be a nurse and I had the best! So anyway most of 2011 was not the best for me but with God's help the rest of it and beyond I am going to LIVE FULLY.
