Tell Us Your Story:

Saturday, Came home from work. Took a shower and a little nap. I dream I was back in the hospital with my torn aorta. It’s been two years and I still dream about that day. My story is the same as everyone on this page. By the Grace of God I made it! The pain, scared, prayed, and cuss. The friends and family that was there I seen through my glasses pain, I love you! And this web sight.

After three weeks in ICU. When I got home and look up a torn aorta, one, I knew I was that sick! You would think after three weeks in the hospital you would get it! It wasn’t until I read about and how close I came to death! And Finding this web sight!

Seeing I wasn’t alone bought joy to my poor old heart! It’s been almost two years! Tell people to get their blood pressure check! If you have high blood pressure take your meds! I use too belong to the church of AIN’T GOING TO HAPPEN TO ME! Well! It did! I want to thank all you that have wrote your story on this page. You ha
ve given me HOPE! By the way!

Not one day did I laid in bed afraid to,,, LIVE ! Don’t you be. As we know life is too short! Go live your life! GOD Bless!
