Forty years ago I was run over by a semi truck while hitchhiking in Canada. Despite having nearly 3 dozen broken bones and many other internal injuries, I fully recovered.
On December 4th of 2017 I was ‘life flighted’ to St Luke’s Boise and not expected to live through the night. I had contracted Capnocytophaga from a dog bite 2 days earlier. Septic shock, DIC, liver and kidney failure were just some of my problems. I later learned that my chances of survival were less than 1%. On day 3 or 4 of being in the ICU we were informed that I may need to have my ears, nose, fingers and feet amputated. Blood clots had taken their toll on all my extremities. Every doctor I had said that it was a miracle that I survived. “I have never in my career seen anyone that sick come in here and live!” said my primary doctor.
I spent 11 months in bed recovering and waiting for my feet to declare what needed to be done. A few weeks ago I had to have several toes amputated. It was while being transported back to the hospital in Boise that I discovered “The Secret”. Everything that could go right, did go right in every step of this adventure. Everything that happened, happened at exactly the perfect time.
My optimistic attitude and my choice to be grateful as much as possible, have made me more joyful than I had ever been before! Every thought is truly a prayer in the process of being answered so choose your thoughts wisely.
I share your “The Secret” with every one I can. I want all my friends to “know” what is possible! Thank you!
