Back to Life!

Well, who knew taking out four wisdom teeth at the same time could be a bad idea? I figured at least they put you to sleep, so you don’t have to watch the bloody operation for 2 hours!

Plus, no one could imagine that seizures, shortness of breath, blackouts and colon injury would be part of the deal! Thank God for 911!

Also for people that think dying is such an exceptional experience, well, not so much when you come back and realize you have been hugging the bathroom mat and have no memory!

I guess some things happen for a reason, like the fact that now I appreciate every breath that I take!

I love my mom and dad for watching over me for several days in a row and I can’t believe Ali called me almost everyday from Ottawa to see how I was doing!

The stitching is healing and I can eat solid food now. They say the brain needs a CT SCAN but I think I will pretend that it didn't happen! The tummy is doing ok except for some bleeding. A specialist will finally determine if I need an operation for that, too!

Also, now that I am thanking people, I should say doctors and nurses are not so understanding but paramedics are! Although I have to admit that their sense of direction is not so good!

So many things happened during the past few days that I am overwhelmed. I almost died because I don’t consider myself to be worthy of attention and care. I always pretend that I am a trooper but at the end of day I realize I more delicate than everyone may think!

Going back to my parents’ house for almost a week was also very nice.

Good news is that my boss (the honourable Minister of the Environment) gave birth to twins last night but she will be back in office by next week!

The Ontario House of Commons (Legislative Assembly) will sit next week and every Tuesday we will have to update the Minister and the Cabinet of everything that goes on within the ministry and outside related to the Environment.

Uuuuh! I am tired. I’d better finish work early and make it for dinner with Katrina and Gabby.

Sounds terrible to me, but people tend to appreciate life more after a near death experience.
My wisdom teeth were removed almost 30 years ago, I remember the amazing big holes in my mouth and the terrible sound of the breaking of the teeth.
Wish you the best.
