My last brush with death
Whew y’all if you truly knew even a half of my story you would understand my total praise!
Here’s the short of a long story…
10 years ago I nearly bled out when lupus attacked my uterus. My son had to call my husband and then 911 when I was incoherently telling him I wasn’t feeling well. When the ambulance came and they looked at me they said I was gray. In the ambulance they pumped me quickly with whatever it was that helped me stay awake and talking until we reached the hospital. At the hospital, I was passing baseball size blood clots that I could hear hit the floor. I was admitted and given a transfusion of 4 liters of blood just to get me to a point where I could have surgery. (If you can give blood do it it truly saves lives Im a walking testimony) Surgery was a success and today I stand stronger than I ever imagined I could be. What I remember most about the whole situation was four things…
1. How calm and attentive my then almost 15 year old son was and how he handled it all until my husband came home.
2. The piercing blue eyes of the medic that got that wandering vein of mine and saved my life
3. The attending ER Doctor that sang this Girl is on Fire as he grabbed each clot out of me and later cleaned me up and himself up and rubbed my head when he gave me that first liter of blood.
4. My doctor telling me it was going to be alright and seeing that old radio before waking up in my hospital room.
Listen… I don’t share this for sympathy. I made it through. I am so grateful that God saw fit to keep this soul in its earthly form. I have made it my business to try and do what’s good and right with that gift.
That’s it that’s the post. Y’all stay strong in all that you go through. I’m a walking testimony that God is a healer and fighting for your life is so worth it. Yes I’m still battling some issues with lupus. It’s all good because I’m still thriving past the issues to a life that is amazing beyond its constraints. A walking miracle with so much more to do on this planet.
Peace & Blessings if you are struggling tonight know that there are better days coming and you can make it through!
