I'm pining for the life I had, My aches and pains make me sad. I've lost so much, my healths not great, I have a new normal to add to my slate. 12 months have passed oh so quick, The 15th of Jan will always stick. I have flash backs of that God awful day, I nearly died, I nearly went away. 3 ambulances caused a bit of a stir, 5 hours to stabilise me, I'm thankful of her. (Dr Bethel) A Medstar flight to the RAH, Poor John had to travel alone by car. I spent a week in intensive care, John by my side, was always there. I was in a bad way, I couldn't walk, But they sure were glad when I started to talk. Another 3 weeks before I was transferred back, A further week in hospital, then I was back on track. Finally home, finally free, Family come to visit, to babysit me. I came close to knocking on heaven's door, But thankfully for me I was needed here more.
