Nineteen years ago tomorrow, March the fifth, 1999 was the first time I died.
I had surgery to remove my C2, C3 and C5 & C6 vertebrae and replace them with pieces of my hip and lots of hardware.
I died during the surgery and they had a very hard time getting me back.
My life changed that day.
It was the catalyst to ending my 32 years of marriage.
It ended my career as an electrician.
It was 19 years of pain.
Yet I remain, Dann, Just as I am
