Within approximately five minutes after administering the anesthesia, the nurse wheeled me out of my pre-op room as I waved goodbye to Maria and Glynis, telling Maria that I loved her. Celia Marie struggled with life in the cave for several years and today was the day the fight would finally be over--or so she thought. But the struggle only seemed to increase after her surgery, leaving her weak both physically and spiritually. Luckily, through the faith, hope and love of her friends and family, Celia was able to fight off the after-effects of her crippling bout with Graves' disease and emerge into the light from the cave-like darkness of illness. Join Celia Marie for this harrowing journey through the cave of pain, heartache and the process of healing. Anyone who knows the difficulty of recovery will want to walk with her and experience the joy of Emerging From the Cave.
