Wow that sounds truly intense. I’m glad he’s okay now. I had a similar revelation, except I was the one who almost died (anaphlyaxsis) after a while the little cares start creeping up again, so try to hold on to that feeling of what is really important as it can change you for the better. My mom’s side of the family seriously does not talk about feelings at all, there are a couple of rifts going on and I can’t actually tell you why X isn’t talking to Y. After my grandmother was diagnosed with cancer she told me for the first time that she loves me, and she tells me every time I have talked to her since (she’s totally in remission now, has been for a few years). She was faced with her own death and it made her realize that she needs to tell the people she loves how she feels because it’s important, more important than anything else she could do for us.

@pinksunshine:  Wow what a hard thing to share. Beautifully written though. I’m soooooo glad he woke up. Putting him in a medically induced coma was what his body needed to start healing itself. This just reminds me (yet again) how precious life really is. Thank you. Prayers are being sent your way!!

@pinksunshine:  Sepsis is no joke at all! I’m so glad your FI made it out of the hospital; and you have a new outlook on life.

I am an ER nurse; your fiance is very, very, very fortunate to walk out of the hospital from the condition he was in. I don’t know if you believe in God or not, but it sounds like a higher power really blessed your fantastic team of doctors and nurses to work diligently and quickly to save his life, and your fiance found the strength and determination to get through this. Honestly, if he waited another hour or two to go; or if antibiotics were delayed by an hour or two upon admission to the ER, he had an extremely high probability that he wouldn’t have made it. Wow.

You are a strong woman, and I hope your whole family takes a new lease on life, and spreads joy to everyone. Don’t sweat the small stuff in family/relationship squabbles.

We are only here for one life, and we should make the best of it. 

I am so happy for you to have your FI for Christmas and New Years! Spread the joy of life!

(And preach the importance of taking care of your body to others, lol. You only get one body! Take care of it!)

@pinksunshine:  I am so glad everything turned out well! My little sister was in a coma for ten days a couple years ago so I know how incredibly difficult it is to see. I hope you take some time for yourself!
