Two steps forward and one step back!
Today I am very nauseous and am feeling a bit weaker than yesterday, but that is pretty normal. There will be good days and bad days... it is helping me to think about where I was a week ago. The change during that time is absolutely amazing. I am not sure if it was posted or not, but I actually coded the first night in the hospital. The CNA came in my room to do vitals and found me unresponsive. I remember waking up to about 20 doctors hovering over me busy, yelling, and anxious...I couldn't hear them over the loud ringing in my ears, but the looks on their faces scared me. I remember trying to say, "am I going to make it?" I had a tube in my throat and could barely mumble words, so they couldn't hear me. They didn't know I was awake, I guess, and I couldn't tell them. It was a very humbling experience. I couldn't talk for quite a while and finally found comfort in my Savior who let me know that if I wanted to continue on...I would. And I wanted to so bad!!! So much has happened in the last 11 days... I am so grateful to just be nauseous!
