A Year Ago I Almost Died
On December 30 2021 I was looking after a beautiful dog, my favorite, when I bent over to get my purse and instead of getting up, rocked straight back into the wall, hitting my head against the drywall so hard, I dented it. Then I vomited before losing consciousness. Fortunately, a friend was with me so she called 911 and all I can remember is big stomping boots, lights, and crisp winter air. The lights in my mind went out. The next time I regained consciousness it was after two brain surgeries.
