  • I graduate tomorrow

    I posted a few weeks ago that I would be graduating soon from radiology technology school. Well tomorrow is the day. I made it!!!

    I can't believe that after five years I will finally graduate It has been a very long road with many setbacks. I had finished all but 1 week of my first semester and had to take a medical leave. When I came back I had to start all over again. Since then I have had about 13 surgeries. Thanks to the encouragement I have gotten from my church, my doctors, and these message boards, I have finally made it.

    I just want to tell all of you who are struggling to get through school with IC that it is possible. It's not easy but you too can do it. Just never give up.

    Somewhere there's a reason /Why things go like they do /Somewhere there's a reason /Why some things just fall through /We don't always see them /For what they really are /But I know there's a reason /Just can't see it from this far /Maybe I don't like it, /But I have no choice /I know that somewhere, /Someone hears my voice / I thought I knew it all /I thought I had it made /How could it end this way? /I thought I knew Somewhere there's a reason /Why things don't go my way /Somewhere there's a reason /That I cannot explain /Just like the change of season, /Just may not be my turn /But I know there's a reason, /The lesson's mine to learn
