Almost died today

I had excruciating pain on the right side this morning and had to be sent by ambulance to not one, but two hospitals. The second had the specialist I needed for my surgery.

It was an ovary with a cyst, and the cyst was so heavy that it literally flipped the ovary over, which put a kink in the vessle supplying it with blood, which then killed it, which caused the pain ... and if it had stayed i there, infection would have quickly spread through my body, and I'd be dead.

My ex husband is keeping my child tonight.

I am grateful to be alive, but at the same time, this scared me to death as a single mom. What would my child have done if I'd died?

I need a will and a living will and so many protections for him that I do not have right now.



Would appreciate prayers.

Thank you so much. I am up and down tonight with Percocet and pain management, but I am so grateful that I didn't have to stay overnight in the hospital and that I am still here breathing oxygen to live to fight another day.
