It was a little strange pulling into the parking lot again after all this time. I sat in the car for 10 minutes before I finally went in to the church. I wanted to wait until the end of rehearsal, so as not to disrupt things. While I was waiting in the hall, one of the children I had worked with saw me. He did a double take and then said, "Where have you been?" It was so sweet and innocent and sad at the same time. We talked for a while, and when rehearsal ended, I popped my head into the room.
Everyone was surprised to see me. It was so nice to finally get a chance to say goodbye in a proper way. I kept my visit short-only 10 minutes. And I left feeling good about the direction my life has taken.
The Doctors will tell you that your life will drastically change after GBS. They are right. Your body changes, your mind changes, and your life changes in ways you never even considered. I believe God used my GBS as a sort of clean slate. Now, as I look back over the last 13 months, it is beginning to make sense. And I am happy to follow wherever He leads me.
One final note...I am currently down 125 pounds. Seeing that in print just blows my mind!
