I was shot in the back eight times, and we may never know or understand why. I coded, received 108 units of blood, lost a kidney, my spleen, my appendix. Part of my pancreas was removed, 20 feet of small intestine was removed, holes in my stomach and liver as well as my remaining ureter, and my back was broken at L3 and L5. It’s not about surviving though, it’s about thriving!
