Facing God.

Updated on April 19, 2016

April 19, 2016

Dear Friends : I know this must be getting old, my talking about my conditions. I have so many ailments it is almost silly.

I was playing my musical Yamaha keyboard when I suddenly stopped breathing. It was a crazy experience. I was gasping , for oxygen in order to stay alive. I thought about suffocation. It is unpleasant at it's very worst. I thought about my wife Joann, and our daughter Becky, and our little dog Candy.

Thoughts quickly flashed in my mind. I could barely speak. I managed barely able to shout 911. I somehow said it two more times. Joann heard me from our porch. All I could say was 911.

I am not afraid to die, but I just hate suffocation. And emergency person responded to my wife's phone call. The responder told my wife to tell me to be calm. With all my efforts I yelled out, I can't breathe.

The police, firefighters, and paramedics came to help. A firefighter carried oxygen equipment, and quickly helped me to try to breathe.

I told him I was dying. He told me I was not going to die. I told him I wasn't afraid. I rode in , and ambulance again.

Everyone saved my life again. I am back home now. Anxiety, and suffocation nearly bought me the farm.

I feel O.K. right now, but , for the future I asked God to take me quick if it happens again.

I love earth angels, and life very much, and I am grateful , for living on our beautiful earth. I am grateful, for the wonderful years in my life , for having a loving family, and wonderful friends. I don't have many regrets. I only wish our little girl could have been able to walk, and to have a normal life, and that my wife Joann would have had a better life.

I pray to God every moment of my life, for thousands of people that have lost their homes because of floods, and storms. My family , and I love God's many creatures that walk our earth. This world is not only, for us, but , for all creatures, and beasts.

God Bless Everyone, and Everything.

      How horribly frightening! Is there not a way for you to have an oxygen tank in your home or an inhaler? I don;t know what your insurance would pay for but maybe you could ask your doctor. Please take care and God bless you.

      Stars, that must have been so scary. I hope you're feeling much better now.

      Praying for you and your family.

      Bless you, stars, I hope you are going to be alright now. I will agree this last part of life is sometimes far from good. We just have to make the best of the good days we have. Hope they gave you meds to make your days go better. Take it easy and enjoy all you can without tiring yourself out and always keep the oxygen close by!
