On April 26th, 2013, I was rushed to the hospital suffering from something called Ketoacidosis, where my blood had literally turned to acid and was killing me from the inside out. Also discovered I had diabetes which caused the DKA, which almost killed me. I was literally about 5 minutes away from death. My family took most of these pictures, I was too out of it to take them myself. I did take some, especially some of the later ones. Luckily, Vassar Brothers Hospital is one of the best in the state and they got me well enough that I was able to go home only 5 days later- most people who have what I had are in the hospital for two weeks, IF they get to go home at all.
