On June 29th, 2009 I was a victim of a robbery and was shot in the chest. The doctors are calling me a miracle as the bullet missed my heart by 1 cm. My esophagus was hit by the bullet and severely damaged while fragments of the bullet hit both of my lungs. It took 8 hours of intense surgery to repair my esophagus. The doctors placed two tubes in my right lung and one in my left to drain them after they collapsed. My doctors and surgeons said I would spend at least two months in the hospital but thanks to the prayers from many around the world and by the Grace of God I was released only 10 days after the incident. I spent a month and a half recovering in LA where I had been living and my friends took very good care of me. I have now flown home to west Michigan to stay with my family and am working my way to a full recovery, which will take about two years.
This blog follows my journey of recovery, the trial, whatever is going on in my life and whatever is on my mind. I hope you enjoy! Thank you for all of your prayers and support… they are greatly needed & appreciated!
God is Sovereign!
