A prayer request

Update: He is now awake! Within the first hour, despite being under heavy sedatives still, he recognizes her, understands commands, and is even showing humor! I am so, so happy for them!

In just one instant, our lives can change so dramatically.

My close friend, Vicky, who is serving in the Marines in Hawaii, had to take an emergency flight to Seattle yesterday because her husband fell on concrete and had a serious brain bleed. He’s had major surgery and the doctors are waiting to see if he’ll wake up.

He is 29 years old, and they’ve been married for less than two years.

I am looking at my life in a whole new way today. Who cares if dishes are left in the sink or money is a little tight this month? I have my husband home and healthy, and that makes me the luckiest girl in the world.

Please send your prayers and good thoughts to Vicky, so that she has her husband home and healthy very soon, too. And consider sending someone a card or a letter to tell them how much they mean to you. Life is too short to leave things unsaid.

About Kristen K

My life has always been pretty darn fantastic--except for one thing: my weight. Not too long ago, I tipped the scale at 283 pounds. I'd gain some, lose some and gain some right back, and I was so frustrated. When I saw a notice for a Biggest Loser-style contest in my local paper, I applied on the spot and I felt like I won the lottery when I found out I was one of the five contestants chosen. We worked out four times a week with trainers and followed a clean eating diet, and my life completely transformed. I've lost more than 60 pounds and I'm feeling confidence for the first time in my life. I'm 29 years old with a great husband, a rewarding job, two adorable dogs and fantastic friends. Weight loss continues to be a struggle now that the contest has ended, but this time I know that I can do it and I'm fully committed. This blog has seved as an accountability tool as I journey from a happy, but fat, person to a happy and confident person. And for the first time in my life, I'm no longer putting it off until tomorrow. This time, I'm starting this minute.
