Hi I am back again. I am a true believer that we each have a purpose, a path, a journey here, that we are each watched over and that there are no coincidences.
Two weeks ago today, my stepfather Stan had an Aortic Aneurysm the size of a grapefruit that began to leak, the aorta is the primary artery that carries blood from the heart to the body. There were a string of perfectly coordinated events that came together so that he is still alive, to list them all would create a long read so I will share the big ones. First amazing miracle, Stan and my Mother Susan were suppose to be in Korea, their trip was canceled 5 days before they were to leave! 50% of all people who make it to the hospital with an Aortic Aneurysm, die at the hospital, once it bursts there is nothing they can do. They brought in a priest, pre-surgery. They had him in the operating room within two hours of arriving at the ER, they were able to get in a specialist to perform a new surgery. When Stan left for the operating room, my Mom started making phone calls to ask their close friends for their prayers. He is recovering, he survived! IT IS A MIRACLE. There are follow up CAT scans at 4 weeks, 3, 6 and 12 months to make sure that there are no leaks. We have a journey ahead but at least there is still a journey.
A reminder that when a trip is canceled, plans fall through or change you never know why, you might just have an Angel watching over you, keeping you safe.
