I always said if sharing my story helped one person then it would all be 100% worth it. I've received a lot of awesome feedback about how my story has helped a great number of people but this time it really hit home for me. This beautiful girl Sarah Rinker, has been dealing with Crohn's flare up for a while now. She thought she was on her road to recovery then one Friday at work, she started to feel nauseous and then the puking began. Then pain in her abdomen started. She knew something was very wrong and thankfully she works with an amazing group of people who brought her to the hospital immediately. Thank goodness because early on Saturday morning she was rushed into emergency surgery to have a portion of her bowel removed due to a perforation, and her abdominal cavity was cleaned to prevent infection. SO CRAZY! That’s kind of like my story, with my duodenum perforating!
Sarah said she read my story a couple of months ago and because of that, she went to the ER way sooner than she would have normally gone. How cool is that, to see my story helping people all around the world! It's so amazing and heartwarming to see. I am so blessed she read my story and that helped her make the decision to go to the hospital sooner.
Sarah, I am very happy my story helped you not wait another minute longer in going to the hospital. You’re very beautiful and you are in my prayers to have a speedy recovery! God Bless!
