Today is my 46th birthday! Three weeks plus ago I was admitted to hospital with Covid 19 as I was breathless and unable to maintain my oxygen levels in my blood. I was strapped to a CPAP machine which did the majority of my breathing for me. The Dr came and had a conversation about the fact that I could well die and what my thoughts were about resuscitation. I remember thinking that if I died, my then 2 week old granddaughter would have no memory of me. And I had things to do. I decided I wanted no more negative talk around me. If I was to die, I wanted even that to be positive somehow. I listened to Donald Lawrence's "I speak life" and I prayed.
My family prayed and an army of people around the world prayed for me. I want to testify to the goodness and mercy of God. I am here where others are not. I have a blood clot on my lung but it is being treated. I am breathing without a machine and I am alive to go and make more memories with my family.
I am so grateful that I have made it to 46. I am so grateful to have life. I am so grateful for my darling husband and my amazing children who prayed and mobilized a prayer army. I am so grateful to my extended family, my church family, my friends who prayed, sent me messages of positivity, love and well wishes.
I am so grateful for the many NHS staff, some whose faces and names I didn't get who have cared for me and helped keep me alive. I am so grateful for the NHS.
Lastly but but leastly, I am so grateful to God for sparing my life, giving me more time. I know not everyone is so fortunate. I thank Him for new mercies this morning and for life.
