It's funny the way life is, one minute your living and planning your day, writing a book.... And the next thing you have fallen dead in your hall way.
It happened to me in May. I was telling my husband I was dizzy one minute and awaking up 3 days later in ICU.
I was told I was a miracle, most people don't die for an hour and 4 mins and wake up breathing or with their brain working almost normally.
If it was not for a husband that thinks he can't live without me I would not have lived to tell you my tale.
Love, I guess it is true, it conquers all. When I after 3 days, the first face I saw was of my daughter that is married to my son. (Yes, she is my daughter in law) but once you join our family, in law just doesn't sound loving to me and she is a keeper. All my family was standing around my bed. One had to drive up to Arlington, that is in the Army.
All of them kept asking me questions and tell me to move my feet.
Like, Do you know who we are?,
What day is it?
And all I could think of is, "Has everyone gone crazy?"It was irratating. So, being the smart ass that I am I looked for a calendar to answer the last question, What day is it? And I found one on the wall behind all my family. and just for fun, I stated very very slowly................ May.........27th.............................2012.
That is amazing Mom!!! I heard from all, "How did you know that?"
I pointed to the calendar on the wall behind them. They all at once said, " She's okay, she is still a Smart Ass."
However, I don't think that is why I survived. But, I am still waiting for a messages from God to tell me why I am still here.
Less than one percent of the people that die for over 10 minutes survive and I was out for over an hour. Some short term memory loss but that is not so bad.
