the day my life began again re-write - moment of truth contest

April 29 2012 dawned, the day that could end my life or give me a fresh start.  The day I was to have open heart surgery,  I wasn’t afraid, in my mind I either woke up or I didn’t, not a damned thing I could do about it.  Thankfully in my hospital a French surgeon specialised in the procedure I was to have.  I smiled said goodbye to my family that had arrived at my bedside at 7 am to see me go down to theatre. Some 12 hours later much to the delight of a much worried team of medics I opened my eyes, this was the turning point of my life, I thought, well God you brought me through this trauma, now I have to live life as you would wish. This I believe was the point of my life when everything changed, when my life began again.

    I have to admit, as much as I liked your first write, this one might be better suited for the contest! It adds a sense of intrigue with it, a great piece of you, maybe just a sliver, but still a piece! I loved this version as well my friend! Great Work!!
