It's Been a while - but Thank GOD!

Managing Real Estate Broker with NCS Premier Real Estate Michigan Broker

Blessings to you, It has been a very long time since I've been on ActiveRain, but I truly thank God that I'm able now.

Everyday is a gift from God, that’s why it’s called the present. Live in the moment and make it count! 

On 8/11/22, riding home on my Harley from visiting my daughter and her family, I was hit by a car, rushed to ER, the doctors told my family that with all my injuries, I wasn’t going to make it! I truly Thank God for all the doctors that had to perform my 13 surgeries and not giving up on me that night! 😍


My pelvis was shattered, the doctors had to put rods and screws to hold it together, ribs fractured, my left shoulder had to be replaced because when my left arm broke, the bone came out, it caused nerve damaged to my left side. The doctors had to do surgery on my private parts, stomach, belly button and intestines. I needed a feeding tube. I thank God that I woke up 18 days later not knowing what happened. I was on a ventilator for 22 days, had to have dialysis for two weeks, then I was on oxygen and on an ice diet, liquid diet, and finally on a regular diet. After 45 days in the hospital, I was sent to a rehab center and stayed there for another 45 days and now back home! Praise God! 🤗🥳

You can’t tell me God isn’t real and that miracles don’t happen. I know I’m a walking, talking miracle! He’s not finished with me yet and I’m truly grateful and honored to continue to do the good work He has for me!

Hello Graziella - while it's always nice to see a familiar name on the blog roll, reading such a frightening tale is not typical.  I am glad to hear your recovery continues and that you are back home.  Hospitals are not fun.  Take care.  Be better each day.  Stay positive.
