It was May 15th, 2014.
Five months pregnant, my wife was diagnosed with PE (Pulmonary Embolism).
PE = “clotting of the lungs”.
10 days earlier she was told the reason for her pain was just "muscular" from MORE than ONE doctor over multiple visits.
She "refused" to believe that muscle pain can result in her inability to lift her arms – worsening by the day.
I even had to dress her in the morning and take over all the household chores.
It was that bad.
It got the point where she admitted herself to hospital.
... and after 2 days of tests – almost being sent home "again" with the same diagnosis as before ... she was told:
"We suspect you have clotting on your lungs, called a Pulmonary Embolism ... to be 100% sure, we need to do a CT
scan of your chest".
We were informed about the dangers this could mean to our unborn baby, and then faced a "devastating" decision.
After 3 hours of sobbing in each others arms, we had no choice but to go ahead with the scan.
PE it was.
We were told, if it was left for another few days, things could have been fatal for my wife.
Luckily, my wife refused to believe the doctor's initial diagnosis and that decision, ultimately, saved her life.
Having accepted treatment for PE … I’m thrilled to say she came out the other end just fine.
How she managed to get through her pregnancy back then, though, is a “miracle” in itself.
Let alone give birth to our beautiful son, Oliver.
Here's a pic of the little guy:
But, back in the hospital when we received news of her diagnosis, something changed in me that gave me EXTREME “determination”.
We were NOT going to be defeated by this.
I made it my mission:
…to get her well again, no matter what.
…to be a loving father and husband, whatever happens.
…and, to provide a better life for us all.
At the time, I didn’t think that “determination” would result in HUGE changes in my publishing business.
Two months later, however, on July 24th, I launched KDSPY to the market...
... and slowly developed the '5 Minute Publishing' brand and product line.
Initially, KindleSpy was created to help streamline and expand my own publishing business.
When I realised what I created, I decided to let others benefit and … “the rest is history”, as they say.
Now, as I write this, my wife has the all clear.
My son is perfect in every way.
KindleSpy has over 9,300 users.
And, my business continues to grow.
I felt like sharing this with you all today in the hope that my story benefits you in some way.
We all have challenges in life, but it's how you deal with them that alters the course of your life.
Whatever happens in your own life, NEVER give up.
Use whatever negative energy, thought or other — into “positive” changes in your own life.
All it requires is a SHIFT in your mindset.
