Deciding to Live Part Seven

Rated "G" by the Author.

I continue to grow in faith as well as in life, and I no longer look at what happened to me as a tragedy because I have learned to be more compassionate to others, and I have more of a zest for life than I did before.

 

 

 

It's been nearly two and a half years since I was forced to make the decision to take my own leg or die in that car, and I do not regret the decision because I am alive.  And I am doing well despite everything.  My practice is running smoothly and the days of excruating phantom pains are behind me.

I was given a new appreciation for what some of my patients went through when dealt with a trauma like this.  Having to decide to take my own leg was a tough decision but I am glad it was a decision I was able to make.

I had never really imagined that one day my own medical expertise would end up saving my own life, so it makes me more and more grateful by the day that the Lord put the call in my heart to be a doctor all those years ago.

I continue to grow in faith as well as in life, and I no longer look at what happened to me as a tragedy because I have learned to be more compassionate to others, and I have more of a zest for life than I did before.

I am not afraid to try new things.  I've skiied and done things I would have never done before I lost my leg, because I realize now just how short life can be and just how much God wants us to embrace it.

And my next project, serving as a doctor for Doctors without Borders, simply because I have been blessed with a second chance and I want others to be blessed as well.
