"As the almost black blood dripped slowly onto the bed against the bright whiteness of the comforter, all I could think was Damn it, that comforter is brand new. I felt the EMT trying to find my vein, causing a digging pain that I would come to know much too well. Then I looked up. I caught a glimpse of Jonathan's face and he looked stoic and pale. Although I couldn't remember having ever seen that look on his face before, I knew exactly what it meant. It was a look of complete fear. I gave him a shaky smile and said with everyone looking on, "Honey, don't look so worried. I am going to be just fine. I'm sure it's no big deal." And at that moment, I believed it. How could I have ever known that would be the beginning of a gruesome forty-four month battle to save my life."
