My body was very, very near death.
As I was clinging to life, I felt the power of God-- the power of family, friendship, sisterhood, healing.
There is power in physical touch. There is healing in the squeezing of a hand.
Thank you for being with me and pulling me through this. I could feel you. Your faith and love is pulling me back to life.
I used to think coming back to life was your Spirit re-entering your body.
My Spirit has always been here, it is the same, if not more.
My body is slowly coming back to life.
My bowels are waking up... Hooray!
My legs lost their physical ability to move and lift... It is amazing to feel these functions returning.
I lost so much blood and the main arteries to my legs blew out and were cauterized.
My whole body was sliced open- what an amazing experience to feel my sensations returning.
Despite the pain, or even perhaps because of it-- feeling your body come back to life is an awesome experience.
I am currently coming back to life and it is miraculous to behold.
