If I Only Knew: One Woman's Challenges After a Liposuction Procedure Turned Deadly

Marcia Beaird

"If I Only Knew"

Would I have chosen this path? Being a flight attendant with the airlines, the opportunities are always there to fly to any country and get any procedure imaginable done, looking as if we had just returned from a spa weekend.

Why not? Just a simple little liposuction. That was the day that changed my life forever. Within forty eight hours, the paramedics were called. My body was septic, and I was in renal failure. The doctors would eventually remove almost eighty percent of my skin to save my life. This deadly bacteria was sweeping through my body like a freight train.

I went from a perfectly healthy person to death's door in a matter of days. It was going to take more than disinfectant to kill this monster.

I was on a journey now, and it was up to me to take control. I knew my faith in God would help me conquer whatever lay ahead. There was a reason I was still here. I was not going to allow this monster to rule my life, but inspire me to take the first step in faith and dig deep down into my soul. I would find the woman that God had put on this earth and to continue his plan for my life. I've learned that hurdles in life are meant to be jumped over, not something to stop us. Lots of prayers, faith, and one exceptional doctor gave me the inspiration to believe.
