And Then a Small Child Barfed on my Foot...
I hope no one will refrain from telling Sara what an inspiration she is as a result of this post, but I have to write something funny she told me. She has had several people come up to her since the accident and say the following:
"Around the time of your accident, I was going through [insert difficult thing that is less difficult than having your fingers cut off and giving birth in the middle of it, followed by months of agonizing pain re-growing some of the most sensitive nerves in your body], and then I heard about what happened to you, and I was filled with gratitude and/or relief."
We both just think it is funny, because you could re-word that statement to say, "Wow, you pretty much have the WORST LIFE of anyone I know, and it makes me feel so much better."
Laughter is the best medicine, I suppose.
Truly, though, thanks again to our awesome community for all the prayers, kindness, floor moppings, etc. in her behalf.
