  1. I have taken the last year to share my story of grief, heartache, injuries and the pain associated with the loss of my son just moments after his birth. Within the pages of "Facets of Life; What I Didn't Expect When I was Expecting," you can read about the journey of the last 6 1/2 years of my life. I lived through a terrible tragedy, but it would take me years to learn how to survive it. Although looking at me, one would never 'see' my injuries or 'know' my pain, I chose to share it so I could help others that may be suffering from the grief, depression and life changing pain that I encountered (and still do) on this daily journey of life.
  2. In 2005 I had a uteran rupture during labor/delivery, & due to loss of blood I have severe nerve damage to my lower extremities. I have been on many sites looking for someone that went through a uteran rupture & sustained my injuries, but so far have been unsuccessful in finding anyone. I mostly relate to those with spinal cord injuries because they are the ones that suffer the complications that I as well have.
    I had my first surgery in 2008. I had an interstem device put in, & on 09 had a bladder sling. I will be having botox injection tomorrrow in my bladder trying to avoid another major surgery. I self cath daily, & have no sensory in bowel/bladder or the backs of my legs/feet. It has been a difficult journey, one that daily takes me to new places of emotions & pain. Neuropathy is always there in one place or another. If anyone can relate to anything I have posted please lmk. Thank you & I look forward to trying to understand life as we know it as best that I can... God bless.
