My amputation is just something that represents a “slight” set back in life. Yesterday Oprah’s show was an amputee Mom who lost both arms and legs. She manages to get around while taking care of two daughters…that is amazing!
I can explain what happened to me but please understand that there were so many things that happened at once i.e. fluid in my lungs, a heart attack, kidney failure, diabetes and then a broken ankle which went right through the skin, which became infected. Yeah, I almost didn’t make it. I don’t know why but I’m still here.
That’s my story! Nobody wants to hear how much pain you were in or how you were praying so that you would die or how many lost days you had or what is like going on dialysis.
People like to hear happy things. I’m so very sorry to say, that certainly is not always the case. I just do what I must do every day. As much as I believe that we all have a “cross” to bear, I just keep right on going.
