It’s All Good

I went down to Rehoboth Beach again this past weekend. I go there every 6 months for a business function for one of my 12-step groups. This assembly was special since we had regional representatives from all over the world who came to share their experience, strength, and hope with us. I’ll be posting more about that in detail on my recovery blog. (Email me for the URL if you don’t have it – I like to stay pretty anonymous over there since I talk openly about the 12-step programs I’m in.)

One of the guys who went down to the assembly from my group got really ill right before we were set to leave. At first we thought he was just being dramatic and perhaps a bit of a hypochondriac. He thought he was dehydrated, and wanted to go to a hospital. He doesn’t drive, so he was depending on the person who provided his transportation to take him to the hospital. Rehoboth Beach is about 3 hours away from home for all of us, so the woman who was his ride was in a bit of a quandary. She wanted to do the right thing, but she wasn’t sure where her responsibility as his ride began and ended. In the end, she decided to take him to the hospital and stay with him until she got news of his status.

Turns out, it was a good thing she stayed – our friend’s kidneys went into failure and he was unconscious and on a ventilator for some time. We were all pretty worried about what was going to happen to him, but today he had a miraculous turn for the better. He’s awake and in good spirits; I’m so grateful.

That whole experience was so surreal and I haven’t been able to get my mind off of it. I was so relieved when I got the good news this afternoon. Hopefully it will continue to be good news.

I also had some other excitement today. My new cell phone came in! I got the Samsung SCH u740 and I am absolutely in love with this thing. I can’t stop playing with it! I made sure to send Colleen a text message right away to show off my newfound texting prowess. I think she was duly impressed. Which? Was not a shocker. My texting brings all the boys to the yard, you know what I’m sayin’? Yaeah.

All kinds of good stuff is happening at work now, too. I can’t really go into too many details about it here, but I will tell you about Google soon, I promise!
