    1. Thank you. I honestly copied the first changed the ending and added to it. But I hope the voice was consistent. Mostly I realized I should update it when I considered submitting it to one of the magazines I write at as an exposé.

  1. Proud to have you as a friend. Anyone who kicks as hard and stands up to those who think they know more. Someone as brilliant and feeling. You’ve certainly got what it takes to become an “adult Pegasus “ and fly away in ballet Slippers or Toe shoes. May you have turned off this rough road and are beginning to go down a smoother road. Always prays and wishes to you. 🌹

    1. Many times I was certain I would not wake the next day. Many, many times. It wasn’t my time! I’m thankful I met the doctor I met when I did last June because I don’t think I would have made it through to this June without her treatment protocol. But the truth is…

      I still know that every day may be my last.

      I know what life I have ahead of me will be filled with emergency surgeries, hospitalizations, and probably more amputations.

      I don’t expect to live to see my nieces and nephews get married.

      I will be lucky to see them graduate from high school or college.

      I don’t know how long I will be able to survive so I just want to tell my stories while I can, live each day to the fullest, and be with the One I love.

      1. I hear you. I’m not going to answer with a fluffy feel good response. I hope to god you are wrong and something is found to treat you. But you absolutely need to live life the way you want to. ——the most fulfilling.

        I went through a number of surgeries, 7 in 2 years. I was asked by my surgeon to what lengths did I want him to go to save my life? I signed a DNR twice. Never thought I’d make it, certain I would not.

        My husband whispered in my ear before every surgery, please try to wake up. Once he was called into recovery because I was on my way out. But he got me to wake up.

        Life is fickle. Fight like a motherfucker! Fight for life and wake up every time. Fight. 💜
