Thank You

On Top Of The World – Imagine Dragons
Survivor Strong a video by Willoweagle

As I am sitting here going over the posts, stats, and comments of this blog over the past week, I am not only flattered and touched, but inspired again.

In sharing my son’s story, it was quite the decision. There were many things to consider. The first being in how would he respond. The second was would anyone be interested. On both, I was proven incorrect.

My son did respond, but not exactly the
way I expected. It was a totally positive one. I had expected to defend, in some degree, my reasons about why I had.  I was prepared to do just this on receiving his first call after posting. I had everything ready. None of it was needed. For that, I say thank you ♡.

As for my second concern, I must honestly and wholeheartedly say I’m flabbergasted and sincerely flattered!!!

For these posts to not only be a series and so personal, yet posted during the middle of the week, I am amazed and humbled by what the stats have proven it to be an unfounded and near grossly ridiculous.

I would be terribly remiss in not thanking you – the reader – in taking your time which there is so little of in our busy hectic day-to-day schedules for reading and taking this journey. It is because of you that I share. Support and understanding during a difficult, life changing experience is all anyone can ask for and on receiving it, a great relief. There are no masks here. This is real. This is life. Thank you.

In creating this blog, my mission was one of support and reference. I will continue striving toward that goal in the hopes that it may touch even one in their time of need letting them know, even though it may feel that way, they are not alone.

My biggest thanks and deepest of gratitude though belong to two young men who for, without them, I am positive this story would have had a very different ending. I believe it was because of their quick thinking and rapid response, my son would have suffered a much more traumatic episode, if not have even died in that moment. So to Barry and Shawn, I’ve said it before and now again, thank you. I can never repay what you did for Andrew. You’ll always have a place in my heart.

To the medics, doctors, nurses, and staff at St. John’s – BRAVO!! My continued gratitude and praise are yours.


In just these four days of posts, we received half the amount of views it had received in the six months since its inception. AMAZING! Also, due to the overwhelming responses, both a Twitter (@BreatheInOutRpt) and a Facebook.(Living ~ Not Just surviving) have been created. I hope you will follow.

In conclusion, my hope is, in accomplishing our mission of support and reference, that you will help us. This can be done by sharing. Share your comments, thoughts, and inquiries to further out scope and growth. Share your survivor blogs/stories so that we may link and follow them which, in turn, will grow our circle.

Lastly, dream and achieve. As a fellow survivor, I know there are times you don’t want to be anything but frustrated and angry what you have been given, other times when you want to announce to the world a goal you’ve accomplished. Life hasn’t ended. It has changed…..dramatically. Adaptation is never easy, yet it is achievable. Though never who you were before…you can be anyone you allow yourself to be now. This is your butterfly moment…..grab it with both hands and hang on. This journey is not for the faint of heart. It’s a journey for SURVIVORS!!!!!

With Unicorn and Rainbow Wishes,

Willoweagle ♡

      Nice post, can you please give me some links where I learn more about this topic?

      I hope that this has translated. Correctly from your comment. I want to apologize for the delay in responding, but have recently encountered more health issues so I was not as diligent as usual.

      Is there a specific topic that you are inquiring about or just clotting issues in general? In knowing this, I can tailor the links specifically towards that interest.

      Thank you for taking time out to read my story ♡
