Barnes Jewish Hospital is Awesome!!!!!!

I cannot stress this enough! This hospital saved my life. And as the story goes on, they will save it again. I just want to say that the stories I tell are from my perspective and how I remember them. Susie, Chris and my Mom might have more details, remember more lab values but you have to understand at this point, very early on in the story, I didn't know what was going on and really parts of me didn't care. I was too sick. I was so sick I was oblivious to how sick I was. I think that was a blessing from God. So, a lot of really painful memories are gone or blocked. I don't know which. And as I tell my story over the course of 2009 to the present, there will be some bad doctors and/or hospitals. But I want it to be VERY clear that Barnes Jewish Hospital in STL is awesome, has brilliant doctors and nurses and Barnes saved my life. There is one phrase that I will repeat throughout my story and it is pretty much the only thing I would say to doctors at Barnes.....all 50+ of them! I would tell them, "I don't care what you have to do to me or what I have to do, but I have a 3 year old at home and please just get me back to her." And they said they would and they did. I love Barnes! So if you get nothing from my story, remember what my aunt remembered so many years ago, if you ever have a really sick person, GET THEM TO BARNES!
