Living with a transplant..or two
Hmmmm…lets start off by saying Im a survivor from several different things! As a child at age 12 I was diagnosed with what the doctor said was pneumonia,after being admitted into a hospital in Fort Rucker,Al! After being sent home with only cold meds I later lapsed into a diabetic coma! Was taken back to another Dr. and he diagnosed me as diabetic! How my family found out what was wrong with me! I was put on insulin and kept in the hospital once again! Over the years my health got worse and I went up from 2 to 3 or 4 shots a day! I started falling behind in school and my my had to eventually sign me out! At 19 I got married to an older guy in which I dated from 14 up until 19! Started working alongside him at a job for maybe 1 yr until my health got bad again! Entered into several other relationships because as I said earlier,I survived thru a lot of bad things! One relationship I had with a guy for 3 and 1 half yrs,he seemed to want to make me his punching bag…not like I didnt go thru it as a child! But….that was no reason to what I had to endure as a grown up! I wasnt awre that the guys was on drugs so I looked over a lot of things! He would come in and out late at night and when he was there..put his hands on me! One night in 2005 I suffered from kidney and heart failure! My breathing sounded as if I has consumed plastic! I finally got a ride to the ER and they told me I would have to go on dialysis! My family that was there then cried a little,tho I sucked it up and said to them..”If God is ready for me,so am I ready to go!” I went directly to the dialysis clinic and went thru such pain that I dared not wish it upon anyone! I looked around at the other patients there,no legs,arms,etc and no longer felt sorrow for myself but prayed for them! Funny thing…I gave up one day and announced to my dying brother I wasnt going back! 2006 February 26 I was called in for a kidney/pancreas transplant only 9 months in on that dialysis machine! And….maybe a day ot two of talking to GOD! Asking him to cleanse me and save me! Im a witness to what He can and will do for YOU! I will forever be HIS messinger! Believing is the key!
