I opened this document to start my update on my 4 week stay at UBC Hospital.

 

 

I started to cry.

 

 

(And it’s not just because I’m an emotional woman.)

 

 

It’s because I have been through hell.

 

 

And the fact that I can say BEEN makes me cry happy tears just as much as thinking of the hell makes me cry sad tears.

 

 

The seizures, the pain, the mile long list of symptoms are far from gone.

 

 

But, I have seen IMPROVEMENT in the last week.

 

 

Which has restored my hope- that was honestly getting a little sketchy there for a while.

 

 

And it is THE most amazing and empowering feeling to have back.

 

 

As for the update of my stay at UBC Hospital, I am simply not ready to share because I am still trying to digest the whole experience myself.

 

Thank you for checking in.
