My name is Jeanne Yates and I have been married to the love of my life, Gary, for 50 years this June. We have 5 grown children, three boys and two girls, and 14 grandchildren and 5 great granddaughters. Except for the first four year of our marriage, we haven't had an empty nest. We raised one grandson from the age of 8 months, until he was 19 and moved out. He is a wonderful young man with a new bride and a great job. We are currently raising a boy and girl siblings who are 14 and 15 and have had them from the ages of 17 months and 4 months. We have two of our grown children living with us at this time.
On March 13, 2015 I had a blood clot in my leg to the extent that I was in horrible pain and my husband took me to the hospital. The doctor took one look at my leg and had me put on an emergency flight out of town to a better hospital. The clot was removed and on the 18th I was waiting for the discharge papers when I had a major heart attack and clinically died for five minutes. What followed is an amazing story that I want to share on this blog.
I am so thankful that you are here!
