Nick and I were married in June 2006 and things were going well with each other but living with other people can get tough. Don’t get me wrong, I am very thankful that we were able to live with his parents so that I could continue to go to school. I never did very well in school when I was younger but I was doing really well. My grades were good enough for me to be on the President’s list and for me to get an invitation to join the international honor society Phi Theta Kappa. Nick was so proud of me and if it were not for him, I don’t think I would have went back to school.
In our second year of marriage, we went to spend a week with Nick’s grandparents over the 4th of July. His grandparent’s house was about nine hours from his parent’s house and when we got home, we were all tired. On July 8th I woke up with a stomachache and asked Nick to take me to the hospital. I was seen in the emergency room and given pain medication and was sent home. When we got back to his parent’s house, I went to bed and slept for a few hours.
When I woke up, the pain was worse and I asked him to take me back to the hospital. When I was finally seen by a doctor, I was told that I was having an attack of pancreatitis. I can remember the doctor poking on my stomach, then being told they were going to admit me. I called my mother in Pennsylvania and told her I was in the hospital and they were going to admit me. I do believe that I told her I was dying and she should bring my sister.
Within 24 hours, I was put on a ventilator and induced into a coma. My body was failing and they told Nick I had less than a 40% chance of living. My kidney’s quit and I was on dialysis, my lungs failed and I had to be on a ventilator so it could breathe for me. I would not wake from the coma for close to six weeks.
I had family from all over the country come to see me while I was in the coma. My family came to see me just in case I would not make it.
I’m sorry to stop my post right here, but it almost 2 in the morning and I’m tired. I promise to keep writing so you can find out what happened next.
