Way to go Darlene:

Hang in there, it just keeps getting better and better.  You will have ups and downs, just follow the doctors orders and don't get too careless the first year.  By that I mean wear your mask, use your hand sanitizer, take your pills on time and stay active in your home even if its just walking or walking up and down stairs.  It took me a year and a half before I felt close to normal.  If you need to chat you can email me at kennethjude@comcast.net.

Keep your head up  

Ken Carrell

Today April 16th

Today at 0700, 4 years ago I received the gift of Life.  It would be mid day tomorrow that I would awake and learn that I was breathing on my own.  Inside my chest, two pure young lungs were becoming apart of me and my days ahead.  No longer hooked to a machine to keep me breathing I would soon be standing on my own.  Inside of me I could feel Tammy joining my life energy and I could feel her love.  To everyone have a great day and stay safe.  I still have much to think about.See More
