    When I was ten I was hit by a car

    and in a coma for a week with survival in question for two days. I made a full recovery, but developed epilepsy a year later. I wonder at times what my life would be like had that not occurred. There are so many scenarios that there are too many to mention.

    Fear On the Cape Fear River

    I never particularly had a yen to try kayaking. I mean, it wasn't one of those things that was on my list of things to do before I die. But when my fiance suggested a kayak trip, I said, "Sure, why not?" So we slogged off to an unmentionable kayak outfitter shop in...

    I actually died of pancreatitis in 2009.

    I was in the hospital when it happened. I just remembered looking down at my legs as I was being pushed in a wheelchair down a gravel road. Everything was so peaceful. Not a sound......no pain....I'll admit I was kind of disappointed when I came back. sigh😪
