I want to thank everyone who virtually/actually held my hand, spared a positive thought, prayed, or wished me well. I have no doubt in the power of all of these things.
I've been going over my list of things I'm grateful for today and it's a huge list (adds that fact to the list). I had a lot of wonderful IMs with six of my dearest, many long, funny, and warm phone conversations with Carl, and a doting husband who never for a moment believed anything other than I'd be fine.
I can't even begin to explain the feeling of energizing amazement and profound clarity I feel today. As with most brushes with mortality, I have an overwhelming feeling of a new lease on life. I don't want to get corny here, but sitting and watching is no longer an option I feel willing to indulge in any longer.
While I do hit some snags now and again, I believe I live an amazing, blessed life.
EDIT: I forgot to mention that I have an ELGA family. They sent me a bouquet of huge "Get Well Soon" cookies. I am in cookie heaven. It was signed "Your ELGA Family" I love where I work. It's so much more than just a paycheck.
