I'll begin my story with telling who i am and what i do. My name is
Paul Van Nespen, 36 years young and i live in Belgium, Aalst (so forgive
me the bad english) and for living i'm an independent carpenter who
constructs tv sets. Last year at june the 11e 2008 i had a small motorcicle
accident. This accident left me with a small scarr on my left knee and
one minor ribfracture. This all happend on friday evening. On saturday
i went to work at a tv-studio and felt like nothing whas wrong. On sunday,
i felt something strange in my knee... Its starting to swell and was
rather painfull. I thought the swelling whas normal because of the accident.
I never go to doctors, and normaly i'm never sick. Untill then! Sunday
afternoon, the fever starts with a maximum of 40.5°C and i started
vomiting and fielling seriously ill.
Next day (monday), i called an taxi to bring me to the emergencyroom
at a hostpital in Aalst (ASZ AALST), at that time i whas feeling like
i whas leaving the earth. Such a pain, such a disorder in my head. I
still can't remember what happend me that day... and all the days after.
Before i know it, i was in the emergencyroom at a hospital in GENT (AZ-GENT)
where the medical personal tryd to safe my life. It all whent so bad.
It took 4 surgical interferences to safe the leg en the rest of my body.
I was in the hospital for 2 months in the department for burn treathment
and i'm still recovering. I'm already back on the job like never before
and i'm thankfull to be alive. I guess somewone needs me downhere, so
i give thanks to all my loving family who always supported me, my friends
who always been there and never let me down...
Also the greatest thanks to the lord up there who send me back to earth
to do things i'd never did before. Try to please friends, family and
all others! Be thankfull to be here and make the best of it...
