It was fall, 1994. I had been diagnosed with closures of the carotid arteries and surgery was recommended, but I hesitated. The doctor who first diagnosed my problem said there was no danger expected from the surgery. The surgeon he referred me to concurred with what he said, but I still hesitated, still fearful.
I had a strong faith. I knew God always protected me and was always there for me. For that reason I knew I wasn’t scared, but still the hesitancy stayed with me.
I had a stroke following surgery, but I never gave up. I retaught myself how to type, how to talk and how to survive the stares that came when people first observed me following the stroke.
Was I bold? I think it was more accurate to say I was determined. Did God ever leave me? No, it us humans who leave God, not the other way around.
