It was on February 24th - 2 months to the day after I was admitted - that I remember becoming aware of my surroundings. The first person I saw was Kathy. She was sitting at the end of the bed and I asked her what day it was. She told me what day it was. My first thought was that I had missed the Super Bowl. I began to realize that I had “lost “ 2 months of my life - they were mentally “just gone”. As I began to comprehend my situation and pray about it, I asked myself as a pastoral therapist “what would I advise?” I concluded: “live day to day, keep active, and let Jesus take care of the rest.” I would “get busy livin” (Thanks to “Shawshank Redemption”). There would be no turning back. I was going to live as normal a life as possible regardless of what it took.
