On this day 3 years ago(August 19, 2015) my life was FOREVER changed & it would start me out on a Journey that has been TERRIFYING, EXTREMELY DIFFICULT, BEAUTIFULLY BLESSED & MOST OF ALL, TRULY MIRACULOUS. I AM BEYOND THANKFUL TO GOD FOR THAT DAY!!
You see, 3 years ago today I was taken to the hospital in critical condition…my liver & other organs we’re beginning to fail. My brain was not fully functioning & my insides were filling up with toxins. I was just mere days away from certain Death. The first thing I recall is a few days after being admitted the Dr telling me I had End Stage Liver Cirrhosis. They didn’t know at that point the extent of my other internal damage & I was not eligible for a transplant due to my alcoholism.
They gave me 3-4 years of life left with deteriorating health along the way. They said I would aslo only be able to be up on my feet maybe 30 minutes a day. That was only if, I would choose to stop drinking, if I would choose to have another drink they said death would be almost immediate. I chose at that moment in the hospital never to drink again!!
Over the last 3 years I have gone from a suicidal depression when the first reality of my diagnosis & all the past TRUMA I had tired to run & hide from by covering it with alcohol & drugs… Sucked me down like the fastest quick sand, squeezing ever last breath from lungs.
TO THEN FINDING SALVATION & REDEMPTION THROUGH JESUS CHRIST 1 YEAR AFTER MY DIAGNOSIS! GOD’S LOVE & MERCY has ETERNALLY changed me. He has given me a New Life & has restored back to me 100 Fold what the Devil had stolen. He has Lovingly pieced me back together Spiritually, Emotionally, Mentally & Physically. He has given me Purpose & Vision for my life & as of currently the Dr said I NO LONGER need a transplant & for the most part my liver functions normally! PRAISE THE LORD!
I serve a GOD OF MIRACLES & I want to let everyone who reads this know that…What Jesus did for me He CAN do for YOU, YOUR LOVED ONE or YOUR FRIEND, for He is NO RESPECTER of PERSONS!! YOU JUST ONLY HAVE TO SURRENDER TO HIM! I also want to say… PLEASE, DON’T EVER STOP PRAYING FOR LOVED ONES WHO ARE LOST…I AM ONLY ALIVE BECAUSE OF THE POWER OF PRAYING LOVED ONES & FRIENDS !
I would also like to give a SHOUT out of LOVE & THANKS to my SUPER INCREDIBLE HUBBY ANDY! I truly would not be where I am today if I weren’t for his UNCONDITIONAL LOVE & SUPPORT. He has show what it means to Love in sickness & health. He is ROCK, My BESTEST FRIEND & the LOVE of MY LIFE! I Love you Andy!
