Seven years ago today the world changed, America was attacked and the very foundation of what we thought we were was shaken to its very core, and a year ago today I was given a life changing diagnosis, ALS, Lou Gehrigs disease, a disease that in the end will likely kill me, but I refuse to let it kill my spirit, just like the spirit of the hero's of 9'11 are still with us, even those whose souls flu to heaven, have embodied themselves in America

Seven years ago today the world changed, America was attacked and the very foundation of what we thought we were was shaken to its very core, and a year ago today I was given a life changing diagnosis, ALS, Lou Gehrigs disease, a disease that in the end will likely kill me, but I refuse to let it kill my spirit, just like the spirit of the hero's of 9'11 are still with us, even those whose souls flu to heaven, have embodied themselves in America.

This has been a hard day not only because of 9'11 but because Ike is turning into an ugly monster, it's up towards Galveston Texas, and I fear we might be get the brunt of some of the storms, but right now one of the students in my creative writing class is facing a storm of her own, Rebekka Rachel passed out in my class the other day, and we tried to wake her, but she did not wake up and she eneded up in the hospital, an infection attacking one of her lungs so badly it had to be removed.

Naomi her Mother, called me and thanked me for being quick in thinking, but to tell you the truth I was scared to death, she told me earlier that Rebekka Rachel has woke up from the surgery and she realizes that something is not right, but not to the extent, the doctors are keeping a close eye on her, because the fact that she doesnt feel pain, doesnt allow her the warning that others get when something isnt wrong, and though she and her parents try to be dilligent, but they can only do so much.

Rebekka Rachel has already lost both of her legs to this condition, and yet she keeps going, she has this incredible will to live and I think that is going to get her through this, but I know it is going to be hard when her Mom tells her that she can't use her prosthetics anymore and that she can't danace anymore, but I hope it doesn't.  I am praying for her as am I the rest of the nation.

Well I need to take my meds and get myself to bed, I have a long day tomorrow, physical therapy, occupational therapy. and a meeting with an in home worker, because I need more help now than I did before, but I am not going to let it get me down, I have to many other things to worry about.

God Bless

Good write, Michelle, but you need to watch your spelling and your sentence length. Just a helpful tip. I still think you did a great job; keep on writing, and don't ever stop! Very well done!

I pray Karissa is safe from Hurricane Ike!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :(
