This week Annie wants us to share our…..
What’s the most serious accident or illness you have ever had?
Tell us about it!
Honestly, I have been fortunate that I have never had a close to death accident or illness. My guardian angel has been watching over me. But, I do have a kinda funny illness that happen to me. Well, funny it wasn’t, however, it was very painful. The timing was very amusing ~ God does have a sense of humor, I must say. My dh was laid off from his job, and to make a long story short we were unemployed for 11 months. All I can say is that God was in control and that whole ordeal was part of His wondrous plan. Anyways, we were visiting in Houston(my parents live there) celebrating a friend’s daughters birthday. The party was Sat night and I started feeling sick to my stomach and had this horrendous pain in under my ribs. I barfed and barfed and didn’t sleep all night. So at about 5 am, I decided to take benedryl just to knock me out. I couldn’t take the pain anymore. I walked into my parents bathroom and passed out. Got up, and told my mom that I was really sick. She said “Jill, just go to bed! Maybe we should call life flight ~ ha ha , I honestly thought that sounded like a good idea. Anyways, I managed to get back up and told my dh that I think that something is major wrong with me and I think I better go to the hospital. Oh ~ did I tell you my dh finally got a job and was to start his first day on Monday back in Dallas??? We are in Houston and my dh has to be at his first day of work tomorrow. Come to find out that I had to get my gallbladder removed and was in the hospital until Wednesday in Houston. My dh wanted to stay with me during the surgery. I refused and made him go back to Dallas with the boys, so he could start his new job that we prayed for 11 months. He brought the boys to work with him the first few days. Great first impression. My parents brought me home to Dallas after my hospital stay. Funny timing, huh!!! Really, I was laughing at the whole situation.
