Life is a precious gift that we have to be thankful for everyday. When you leave your home in the morning there is no guarantee we are going to make it back home safe and yet we often take it for granted that we will.

On July eleven I went to the hospital to have a medical procedure done.  I expected to have been back home in about three hours.  However things went horribly wrong.  I had a hole blown through my colon as soon as the procedure started.  I was told I needed to do a CAT Scan to get more information on what had happened.  It confirmed what the doctor suspected; there was a hole in my colon which was not supposed to be there.

I was then told that a team of surgeons were coming to speak with me.  To make a long story short, I was told that they needed to operate immediately to repair the damage that had been done.  The operation lasted three hours and went extremely well.  In fact I was told by the surgical team that considering the severity of my injuries the operation went even better than they had anticipated.  What they were even more amazed at was how quickly after the operation I began to heal.  I was told every day that the speed at which I was recovering was amazing.

Thanks to God for his healing touch, I was released from hospital on July 20, after spending nine days there.  I give thanks to God that the operation went well and that I began to heal quickly afterwards.  I am not fully recovered yet but I am getting stronger every day and am just thankful to be alive.
