So, tomorrow; I celebrate a whole new meaning to LIFE! I'm posting this now as I have to work tomorrow and will then be out celebrating :))!!! I do get very emotional on this day because it really does hit home when you realize it could be a 4th Memorial Anniversary vs. celebrating Life in the Here & Now! Tomorrow, February 10th 2011, is a day I will never, ever forget as I went knocking on Heavens door to be sent back gently...and with a bit of a new agenda too! After leaving the gym, I would find myself taking my 1st helicopter ride to Boston being in the midst of a Brain Hemorrhage from an AVM I never knew I had; nor did I even know what an AVM was! I'm just so very Grateful to our medical community for their ongoing efforts in continuing to make such inroads in their treatments of AVMs & Aneurysms!
Pictured here is me 6 months after my hemorrhage getting my final treatment they call CyberKnife (a form of stereotactic radiation) vs. open brain surgery to remove/obliterate my AVM and it worked; Praise God!!! While this was clearly the non-invasive route; it also allowed for me to go into it with some style ;). I now consider this AVM a Gift, not wrapped in a pretty box, but a Gift nonetheless that brought forth just so many Blessings in my Life. Yes, it also brought forth some very, very difficult times & changes; but the Blessings far outweigh these difficulties thru the healing journey!
It's been a while since I've been on this site, now back to working full time, and wanted You all to know that I am doing very well and excited to be celebrating 4 years of a New & Improved Life. My Hopes for each of You is that you are able to find some Peace & Comfort thru your own Healing Journey❣
Every time we may be faced with something Unexpected, Unwanted, and Uncertain; consider that it just may be a Gift.....Michele 2.0 is here to Stay ツ
