been thinking of illness and recovery lately…

unfortunately many of those I know are dealing with difficult life situations…

today I was reminded that nine years ago I began a 42 day stint in the hospital with pancreatitis

waking up in the middle of a procedure and remembering how a nurse had said that if that happened they would put me under again quickly and I would be okay… and I was, but it sure was scary…

it really was the worst I have ever felt… medications caused numerous problems and confirmed my own knowledge that drugs do not play well in my body…

trying to convince medical staff of side effects which they had never heard of and hoping that down the road when someone else mentions a similar reaction they will remember my comments and maybe believe that the drug might have different effects on different people…

the difficulty in having the staff not give drugs that made me hallucinate and yank tubes out of my body…

and the amazing nursing staff who believed me and took such great care of me…

I remember how my beloved brought me pictures every day of the morning glories as they opened in the garden…

life can change in an instant… hug your loved ones and tell people you care…
