two years ago today June 6th 2009 I suffered an ascending aortic dissection (basically my aortic artery tore into pieces from the inside out where it attaches to my heart) and very nearly died. I truly believe that my survival is a total miracle because people don't typically survive what I went thru. Life for me today looks so different and I have continued to be grateful no-matter what trials, joys or stresses the day may bring.. every day since then has been a treasure. I am thankful that I am here to share the rest of my life with my son, Jarod and of course Junior and Buddy (my other boys).
Have a blessed day and life, Mara :o)
