My Thanksgiving Prayer

Dear Lord,
I pray, beg and plead, that you keep me healthy this Thanksgiving. 3 years ago I was hospitalized after our Thanksgiving football game because of an infection and massive dehydration. I was actually in the ICU and they told my mom had about a 20% chance of making it through the night. Well obviously I beat the odds. Not only once but TWICE...
The next Thanksgiving I was rushed to the ER after dinner because I was in the worst pain I have ever experienced, EVER. After mass amounts of morphine they diagnosed me with a kidney infection. Two hours after being released I was back in the ER unable to keep my meds down and had the feeling that a small elephant child was sitting on my chest. Pneumonia it was. I was instantly admitted to the hospital and sedated, this was the day after Thanksgiving, I did not wake up from sedation till December 2nd and was not released from the hospital till Dec 5th. There was a point when I woke up that I prayed for God to either take me then or make me better, I was so sick that I couldn't imagine living another day through the hell and pain I was enduring. Triple threat of kidney infection, pneumonia and swine flu. Oh yea, when I get sick, I do it big!
Last year I was admitted with an upper respiratory infection, only stayed for a few hours but GEEZ, CAN I BREAK THIS SPELL??

As of right now it is 6pm on Thanksgiving and I am feeling fine! Hoping my serious prayers to God all day helped!

I am very thankful, most importantly for my health this year, along with my family, friends and Jeremy. I have so much to be thankful for and I am one lucky girl!

Hope everyone is having a great Thanksgiving and stuffing themselves full!

Oh & I'll leave y'all with something to giggle over, when I was in the ER for the kidney infection my mom thought it was hilarious to video me because I was on so much morphine. I am about 3 sheets into the wind!!


OH and one more thing- I am so thankful for all of my new followers! I am getting a few everyday and this makes me VERY happy! yay!
