Hello blogger friends. I have to say, after the daunting couple of weeks I’ve just gone through, I was stoked to find some good news waiting for me. VB

Fellow blogger buddy Jen from jabrushblog nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award, and I am so stoked!

About My Miracle Life

I'm a writer, blogger, avid reader, book reviewer, sub-arachnoid hemorrhage and stroke survivor, moving forward in my recovery and trying to advocate for stroke and brain hemorrhage awareness and prevention. I'm also slowly working towards independence, driving, my first novel, a memoir and a series of short stories. I've been lucky to have a very small network of close friends to guide me; I've been even luckier to have found an online 'family' of sorts to help me through the rough times.

    Congrats Eva. Way to go. Didn’t realise you had been involved in 9/11. Glad you got awards for it too. Never had either coffee so I’ve no idea. Love ya.


    • Thank you, Grandma Dragon. Sadly, I was. I worked in downtown Jersey City, NJ at the time and witnessed the second plane hit the second tower from the office building I worked in. As soon as we were evacuated, I went home, changed into my EMS uniform and went to work. I was a fairly new EMT (less than a year) at the time, so I worked as a volunteer for the first two years of my career. I was trying to gain experience; I gained it alright.

      As an aside, the very man that instructed me how to get into EMS was lost on 9/11. I’ll post the last known picture taken of him that day on our site next week. Love you more.

    Congrats on the award. Have a good weekend.


  4. I prefer Dunkin Donuts over any other kind of donut.
    Congratulations on the award.

  6. Congrats on the award and thanks for nominating me. I’m so behind on … well, a lot of things lol, but I really appreciate the award and still believe I can catch up eventually. =D I love House of Cards, too, although I find I can only binge-watch a few eps at a time. I didn’t know you were involved with medical emergency services during 9/11…
