In Memory Of…

On September 4, 2015, my friend Doug, who suffered from PTSD after serving in the military, hung himself at 6:15 pm via Facebook. Here is the memorial tattoo I got for him….

From The Accident That Nearly Killed Me (March 15, 2017)

Right after surgery to fix my pelvis and left leg

It hurt to just simply sit up in a chair

Ahh, yes,those pain meds have just kicked in hard…

And Mr Bear was my cuddle buddy…

Right before the staples got removed from my left leg…

My lovely hospital bracelets…

The food at Mercy was actually delicious

Get well wishes…

My buddy Todd Barnes, right after my hospital release on April 7…he helps a lot

Delicious welcome home BBQ from my neighbor, Roger…

Can’t wait to get out of it!!!

Broken scapula (not my 1st time)

The huge metal screw that now holds my pelvis all together..

My left leg now equipped with a metal rod, metal plate, and several sets of metal pins, sure to entertain metal detectors

After I Almost Died..

On March 15, 2017, I woke up just like any other day. I ate, applied for a few jobs online, then after noticing that I was nearly out of food and other necessities, I went to the median near my place to fly a sign. I got there, put my bag down, and held up the sign. That’s all I remember before waking up in the middle of the road, screaming to anyone who might hear to please help me. A lady came to me and I told her to please not let me die. This woman said she would stay until the ambulance arrived, stroking my hair and praying for me. Then for the first time ever, it happened. I felt no pain and I heard a soft voice telling me that he was with me and I was surrounded in his love. I knew that God had my back. It was the most beautiful feeling in the world. I spent three weeks in the hospital and I have a surgeon appointment for Monday April 24, where I will find out when I can start learning to walk again. I’m so fortunate to be here writing this. God Bless you all!
