40 DAYS AND FORTY NIGHTS in TOTAL DARKNESS
September 15, 2008: Admitted to the RONALD REAGAN Liver ICU
October 24, 2008: Woke up from the state of coma at Liver ICU
I spent a total of 129 days in the hospitals from September 9, 2008 to January 14, 2009. I slept for two months in absolute darkness, in an indeterminate state. At the hospital, I got tracheated, bounded by many plastic tubes, experienced many medical conditions (excruciating at times), muscles wasted and re-learning “baby steps” to be able to eat again, talk again, walk again and feel the touch again.
