I found personal support from a very kind nurse, who would read me stories.  I found support from a race-car driver, who had someone else also in critical care.  Someone played a song for me over the radio, and it was called, “Eye of the Tiger,” by Survivor, and that’s was almost the initial point of where I felt where my strength would come from.  And, that has become, you know, a critical point, became a critical point of where I would never give up, and I had that will to survive, so like the song.  And, then I eventually met the group later on it my life.  But, it was all the little things—the family that  I made in the hospital, the people that were also there in critical care, who eventually found out that I was there by myself—then at some point, I didn’t feel like I was alone.
