I have been so absent lately and there are so many things I want to make sure I write about.

So things will be completely backwards ....
I'm going back in time....

6 months ago.

Because I have printed my blog into a book for many years (9 to be exact) I wanted to be able to print it out again. To be able to record the most heart-wrenching and miraculous event of my life.

So here goes.....

The previous posts are "cut and pasted" from Facebook.
That was my mode recording the events.
For some reason Blogger would not work from my phone, it shut down.
Facebook was the best way for me to keep family and friends informed.

So to learn more about what we went through, go back to December 6, 2016

It was a very raw experience.

Oh my dear friend, I'm so glad to see some posts from you. I read every word with intense interest. I know it must have felt so surreal for you and it probably will sill take time to come to term with how could this have happened. You are so brave for writing about it and I hope some emotional healing will come from taking this first step.

I know first hand how difficult it is loosing someone you cherish so when I lost my very active and beloved olderst daughter Nicole. She was gone in the blink of an eye. I still miss her so much. I too get teary eyed each time I think of her. She was only 50. I know how hard it was telling her siblings of her passing.

I'm so thankful for you to share all this with us and it's good to have this recorded for your family also. Life is so very precious and when everything is going well we rarely give it a second thoughts. We are spiritual beings having a human journey but that journey can take some scary turns.

Blessings to you and your family.
Smiles & hugs,

Holy cow! I just back read all of your post and can't believe what has been going on in your life. My prayers will definitely be directed to your husband, you and your family as he continues to fight to get better. I know the Lord is blessing and working miracles to keep him going. I'm just so sorry, its crazy how life can take a turn. I worry about my husband who is an avid bike rider. He just completed this 60 mountain bike race up in the 'actual mountains' and was gone for 5 hours while riding it. It's this extreme stuff where anything can happen. Although like you said, because of his crossfit and keeping in shape his body has a much better recovery rate and sustained him while his heart was failing.

Thanks for sharing this and know I will be praying for all of you.
Sending a cyber hug your way

First, I love that your sweetheart is miraculously still here! So entirely grateful for answered prayers! Second, I love that you're blogging. I had pulled back a lot, until recently when asked me to blog with specific topics. I love blogging and I love reading others' blogs about the beautiful and the miraculous mercies in their lives. THANK YOU!!!

Sweet Tauna I had no idea that your sweet Howie has been going through so much. I think it is wonderful that you are documenting in FB and on your blog what has been going on. It will be good for reference if you should ever need it in the future for any reason and I think it is good therapy for helping you get through it all. I am so happy to hear that your Howie is still with you. You are always in my prayers but I will be saying extra for all of you now that I know about this. Miracles happen all the time and I am happy for you sweet Tauna that your Howie is one of them. Hugs and blessings

Oh my goodness, sweet friend...I didn't realize what you have gone through! I am so glad that prayers were answered, that angels attended, that family and friends, co-workers and others were inspired and knew exactly what to do when he needed it. I'm so thankful that you and your sweet children did not lose their father, that you still have your eternal companion with you on this earth. I know for a fact that angels surround you when you need them, that miracles happen to ordinary people, and to extraordinary people like your sweet husband. I'm so glad that you have him with you today, what a precious and miraculous story! I'm such a softie, I cried like a baby reading every post! Thank you for reminding us all that miracles still happen in this crazy world and that we are loved beyond comprehension. Hugs and love to you and your family, y ou will be in my prayers. XOXO
