Apparently, my heart stopped during the surgery. It was a very surreal feeling. I have thought often of it. The thing that I’m left with is this, I’m not afraid to die.

I was faced with having to fight a little inward battle. It was a beautifully warm spring day. I wanted to go for a run. But I knew my leggings under my running shorts would make me so hot. The question came to me, am I willing to go out there for everyone to see me, covered in red splotches?

We decided to make a time capsule.
