Wednesday morning 9/29/10, I took my husband to work and when I

came back home, I was still feeling tired. I tested my sugar that morning

and it was 120. So I figured it would be alright for me to go sleep for a

couple of hours so I went to sleep and woke up about 10:00 or 10:30

that morning and I went to the kitchen to make me some juice and as I

was trying to open it to start making the juice I felt lightheaded and I fell

out. I knew I could not stay on the floor because I didn’t want no

grasshoppers or roaches or anything else crawling on me so I got up. I

don’t know how I did it but I got up off that floor. I went and got into

the bed and I must have passed out. My husband found me on the bed

and called the ambulance. I did not know anything until 11:00 or 12:00

that night that’s when I came too. Thats when it began, the medicine,

blood pressure, blood work, food, sugar shot, it just goes on and on.

Well, I was on my way back from recovery. At first the doctors thought

that I was having another stroke but after the test and all that they saw

that it wasn’t a stroke. I had peumonia. I knew I a had a cold, coughing

sometime, but I thought it was going away. I didn’t know that it turned

into peumonia. They checked out my heart, it was fine. Then my foot

was still hurting from the fall but they didn’t know that because I was

unconscious at the time when I came in. Then when I had to get ready

to go donstairs I told them that my foot was hurting and I could not

stand on it. So they eventually gave me a boot to put on my foot and so

it would not move around all the time. On Thursday, we had a bible

study in the hospital and everybody came to read their bible with me. It

was the most exciting thing that happen to me. What seemed like a life

time to me, they finally let me go home. My recovery was not from a

stroke, but from peumonia and a fractured foot. But it was a recovery.
