In early January, I was struck down with one of the worst pains I have ever felt in my life. I spent all day on the couch holding my stomach in pain. I could barely move. I’m somewhat known for being stubborn and decided to “tough it out.”
I went to work the next day and was sent straight to the doctors that afternoon by concerned co-workers. Once we got to the hospital, we ran some tests, and I ended up having emergency surgery. Something in my stomach had burst. After two surgeries and multiple weeks in the hospital, we still didn’t know what was wrong with me.
