  • Apr 4 2013: July 3, 2011 I was the victim of a robbery & was shot 5 times! As i lay there in my own blood the last thing I remembered was seeing the paramedics enter my apartment & begin preparing me for transport. I blacked out...came to & now was being rolled on a stretcher to the ambulance. As the ambulance left the apartment complex, I remember asking the paramedic if I was dying or would I make it! The VERY last thing I remember was his vague response saying I looked okay...then i blacked out! Once I made it to ICU, the doctors & nurses induced a coma & I remained in that state for 3 days!!!

    Well, I remember waking up, & the very first thing I saw....was my now- girlfriend! Mind you, prior to the shooting we only had known each other for about 2 WEEKS!! So imagine my surprise to see her there when I opened my eyes! I was in that coma for 3 days, but I thought it was the same night. Anyway...this young lady stayed with me @ the hospital throughout my entire 3 month stay. She was there giving me daily words of encouragement through a very rough rehab ritual & waited on me hand/foot!! Needless ton say, we became a couple. Now this young lady barely knew me....really had no strong ties to me...knew basically NOTHING about me except what she learned during our 2 week courtship!! She could have left & went on about her life....but she stayed!! And she STILL has my back to this day!! I love this woman, totally! So to answer your question....I'm STILL experiencing my best moment!! :-)
