One year ago today I woke up in an ICU with a breathing tube down my throat, a tube in my neck and several more exiting my body just above my bellybutton. I hurt in places I didn't think you could feel pain and all I could think about was getting that damn tube out of my mouth.
During that ordeal, I learned just how many friends I really have and I have to admit, it is humbling.
Thank you to everyone who sent prayers and good thoughts my way and Happy Birthday Tankerbabe.
