I wasn't supposed to make it to the hospital alive. - Wrong!
Then, I wasn't going to live through the first night (the doctors were wrong again),
then the first week (wrong again),
was not even a candidate for rehab and needed to be sent to a nursing home (so thankful that Rick Saake fought that battle for me, TWICE, and got me admitted to the rehab hospital).
I was certainly never going to walk again (took me 8 months and I still use a cane or walker outside of our house, but WRONG again).
I was sent home with a hospital bed for our living room, advised to ditch our waterbed because it was unreasonable to expect I might ever be able to sleep there (and get up out of it on my own) again - proved them wrong my very first night home and every night I have been home (over 3 1/2 years now), since!

Thank you, Lord, that doctors are so often wrong!!!
