How Did You Choose Your User Name?

I wasn't as creative as all of you - tried several names that were already taken. So I ended up with February - my birth month.

My name comes from all the first initials of myself, husband, daughter, son and daughter. We have used this user name ever since we bought our first computer. lol

A friend gave me the Native American name White Dove many years ago. Also, the Bible mentions the white dove for the Holy Spirit and the 3 in my name is for the Trinity (Father, Son, Holy Spirit). Maybe it sounds silly, but the name is comforting to me.

I tried several user names but the website would not accept them for various reasons. Then I decided to use my Mother's nickname given to her by her Mother when she was only a baby, so that is where "Dook" came from. Why my Grandmother gave my Mother that name I will never know. (They have both passed)

My username, Shalom, is one I haven't used before...recently, I found out that while Shalom means "peace" it also implies the state of being where there is nothing missing and nothing broken....The idea captivated me...that even with horrible health, and all of the trials in my life, God can make this true of my I'm pursuing that...Nothing missing, Nothing broken!

Thought it would be a good reminder to me when I'm on here, since this journey has the potential to be full of brokenness and things missing...

Mine's not terribly original - I'm a reference librarian at a local community college. When I registered, I couldn't believe that no one else on the site had picked it!

Raja came from a histroical romance novel I read a long time ago, and I have used it as a screen name ever since the 2773 are the age and last part of the year I was born when I first used it. In the Book Raja was an Erotic teacher of love and on the cover he was fine as heck! LOL My cell phone says "hello Raja" when you open it. I love to read Romance books. I guess i will be doing alot of that after the Surgery at home.

Three years ago, when I was 31, I had just given birth to our 3rd baby. When he was 12 days old, I went into ICU. I hadn't felt good since having him, but it just got worse and worse and got to where my feet weren't wanting to move and felt like I was carrying around a lead weight with me. I also felt like I had the stomach flu or something. Well, when we got to the ER, my BP was 68/28, my kidneys and intestines had already shut down and they said had we waited 4 more hours, I would've been dead. It turns out I had invasive Group A Strep infections, known as Streptoccocol Toxic Shock Syndrome (not the kind you get from tampons) and Necrotizing Fasciitis, aka the flesh-eating disease. I also had DIC (disseminated intravascular coagulation). All three of these things can kill you and I managed to survive them all. From these, I had sepsis, multiple organ failure, congestive heart failure and pneumonia. I also developed a staph infection in one of my picc lines (for those that don't know what that is... I sure didn't before I had 3 of them... it is like an IV on steriods. When they took the one out of my right arm, I could feel it all the way up into my neck.. *shudder*).

I developed huge, blackish blisters on my legs and arms, the biggest was 15" long and 4" wide on my right leg and foot. My feet and legs were purple and blue and my toes were all black. They wanted to amputate both of my legs at just under the hips. My dh knew that I couldn't handle that, I've had severe depression and anxiety disorder for years. He also said that whether I lived or died, that was up to God, but I would be whole. And speaking of God, I give all credit to Him. I had so many people praying for me, it still leaves me in awe! My dh was in charge of missions at our church at the time and we had our missionaries praying. A man he worked with new some missionaries and had them praying. We homeschool and I visit a couple of message boards, so my friends there were praying, their families and churches were praying, too. Everytime something bad was happening, we'd get the prayer request sent out and whatever was happening would be resolved. It was just amazing to see it happening!

I was given a 20% chance to live and was told by some of my 14 doctor's that I would never walk again. They never did find the source, although my ob/gyn told me that it would've been from the delivery.

Anyway, the fact that I am alive today is a miracle, and I was 31 when it happened.. that's how I got my name.
