Last night I watched a show on Discovery Health about a young woman who was paralyzed from the chest down and pregnant with twins that was SO inspiring and of course a true story. She, her husband and infant son had been rear ended by a semi and their four month old son was killed and she was left paralyzed. She got pregnant with twin boys and they were both born healthy even though she had to spend the last few weeks in the hos. cause she couldn't feel when she went into labor. It was a struggle from day one trying to figure out how to take care of these beautiful babies while in a wheelchair and only having her arms, hands and mouth to use for everything.
At the end of the show she was smiling as she said how blessed she was that God chose her to be little Levi's mother for the four months she had him and for her arms and hands to hold her new babies. Her only disappointment was some of the meds she had to take didn't allow her to nurse her babies.
I have to work daily to keep the most positive attitude I can. I have learned alot about positive thinking from others but I guess it doesn't come as easy for me as others and I'm a work in progress.
Fibro is nothing compared to losing an infant son and facing the challenges of raising two more sons while in a wheelchair with only your hands and arms. She is amazing as many others in this world are.
If you get a chance this is a show worth watching.
luv and hugs
