I honestly don’t recall my reaction to those words…and to this day have very little recall of the events that took place over the next few weeks. My husband, family, and friends have filled in some of the blanks. In talking to people over the past two years, most have said that the gaps in my memory are a blessing. In a way I agree, but feel sad that I don’t recall such an important time in my life.
I know I am not alone as so many people are thrust into the complex world of healthcare in the blink of an eye. If you or a member of your family has had a medical challenge that has rocked your world, know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
I am grateful to be here, to be recovering, and to have family, friends, and colleagues who support me unconditionally. For all of these things, I am most grateful.
None of us know what the future will hold for us, but I am looking forward to the ride!
