I came to Hammond, La to help a friend do some work on his houses and trailers, they all need some help. I went to the Winn Dixie to get something for dinner.
Sometimes my key switch doesn't work so I climb under the truck and jump the starter, done it a thousand times. This time I heard it drop into gear! By time I got loose it had drug me across the parking lot rolling me over. I saw the rear end and tire coming I tried to roll out but the tire got me. Crushed a lower lumbar vertabrae, broke 2 ribs and dislocated my collar bone. The truck continued rolled between 2 cars and ran into the next row hitting 2 more cars. This is August 7. I couldn't move my left leg. The Dr said there was a lot of nerve damage but he thought he could help it by putting some screws in or I may never heal. I could have died from my injury. I agreed to the experimental surgery. After the surgery it was a little better, I could wiggle it but still not lift it. They let me out the 13th. Puss was coming of the cut a little. When I saw him 2 weeks later he put me back in the hospital worried about possible infection. They went back in on the 9th of Sept, cleaned everything up and put 2 rods in attaching them to the vertebrae above and below, the 1st try didn't work it was too damaged. Another experimental surgery, I was told I may never walk again unless I had it!
The pain upon waking was indescribable! Nothing they gave me or any position I could get into would relieve this Pain. It was a week before it was at a manageable level. They kept me all month I even spent my birthday in there getting filled with antibiotics twice a day. Though I still couldn't lift my left leg I was getting around on crutches pretty good. They let me out finally on the 5th with scripts for antibiotics, pain meds and a couple other things. I am so blessed! The people I came to do the work for had already got my truck out and told me I could stay with them while I heal. My son had offered but I could tell that first weekend, it would not work out with him. He was unable to provide the care I needed. They understood because their oldest daughter with 2 kids had gotten in a wreck 2 years ago and has had 18 surgeries in 2 years! She is doing OK now,well she can walk, they saved her left leg doing all that. Though I can't walk very far without crutches I'm getting stronger every day. I'm able to help clean and as soon as I can I will get the work done I came here for in the 1st place! I am so Thankful for their kindness and understanding! You don't meet many people who would take in a stranger and help him...God Bless them! Even though I had absolutely no privacy, she put me in the living room!
They like everyone else are struggling to get by. He drives an 18 wheeler and is gone a lot, she works as a waitress. We are getting by One Day at a Time...I've been living that way for years now. By the Grace of God and my friends. It is so important to our awakening to help each other all we can! I would love to figure out a way to enhance my income online so I can do more than just survive! Thank you for your guidance and friendship
Everytime I move there is a reminder I am consciousness in a human body~lol~that is how Pain has become my Guru~
This was 5 years ago I am resurrecting my web page Pain is my Guru to share even more adventures, how I learned to use the pain as a teacher and I nearly died again after the last Full Scorpio Moon, lol~ I will post that one soon~
