I got a call this morning about 8:30 a.m. from the hospital telling me that Jeff's ventilator had been turned off and the tubes taken out and was asking for his 'WIFE" I immediately got dressed and not drive but ran to the hospital, it had been 12 days that I had got to talk to him, when I walked in, he cried I cried we kissed we hugged and even though he didn't know the day and was still somewhat not making since I didn't care, GOD answered my prayers, and I wanted to talk he could only talk in a whisper but i didn't care, if he asked me once he asked me a thousand times to cover him up, turn on the tv, get the nurse, get this get that but you know what I didn't care, i was there I did it all, as I said from the beginning when you see your husband lay there with 14 tubes hanging, cant breath, scared from the beginning wheather he would pull through you would do anything, when I walked in and he was sitting up an only had about 6 tubes i knew a miracle had happened OUR GOD upstairs brought him back to me, I had to leave at 6 pm tonight only because at that time they won't let family in there until shift changes, and we live on 7 acres and had to feed animals.

When I kissed him bye, and he cried it was exceptionally hard to leave him, but if they call and tell me to come back I will.

What this man has went through, I count my many blessings everyday, and not only that the pathology report read that his path was excellent, what more could i ask for today.

Well our journey is still a ways to go but my husband and I are doing so much better.

Would I go through this again YOU BET!!! Anything to keep my husband near.
