I was giving God the glory in this self-capture and thanking HIM for bringing me through the most difficult times of my life. I had a mysterious diagnosis for 10+ years. It seemed like I had every test done imaginable… I felt like I was dying, and I almost did a few times. I was at the point where I asked God to either take me up to heaven soon, or give me an ANSWER! It got that bad. I was not living… I was suffering and struggling to hang in there. I gradually grew worse as time passed. Finally, one of the last diagnostic tests performed was an echocardiogram followed by a TEE test. THE discovery was made. I had two heart defects; my surgeon was amazed I was still alive. I just had major heart surgery last year… they stopped my heart, collapsed my lungs, repaired my heart, and after 6 hours in the operating room, I was taken to ICU, and then I woke up. I am here!!! It was a LONG journey, but I made it. I thank God, my family and friends for all of their prayers, and for an amazing cutting edge surgeon! In this time of recovery and healing, my creative outlet has been spent with photography, my true passion!
That is why I always say —→ “Live in the moment, for it is precious.”
