I Am Lost Without Family And GodI got sick a little after I moved to place were I did not't know anyone. I had a son in elementary school who was scare to death to see me in so much pain. My son would call my sister crying because he didn't know what to do to help me. It took the doctors three years of testing to tell me what was wrong. When I found out I had Takaysu my two sisters had gone to the Mayo Clinic with me. The hospital was my last hope of finding out what was wrong. My sisters cried when the doctors said I had 5 years to live. But what they didn't't understand was God had something different in mind. I have live 2 years longer than what they thought and I thank God I am still alive to hold my children and my grandchildren. When I got sick I would pray for God to let me live long enough to see my youngest son graduate from high school. When I saw him graduate I cried.
My mother and father and sister have died since I got this illness but, I am still here. I spent a lot of time away from home because of my job prior to becoming ill. Now I love being around my family and my career is no longer the focus of my life, my family is what's important to me. When I dye I will be one of the most blessed people I know because I will know that I am loved very much, and have lived a great life!! I hope everyone reading this message know how important family and faith is when trying to dill with illness.
