Clean and sober tonight, but only because alcohol was banned from the place I'm staying. My celebration will come when I move out.

My daughter had major surgery and almost died. She spent two months in the hospital. It was the worst time of my life. I am also so grateful though that she survived and, while her life will now be more difficult as a result, she's alive to enjoy it.

Wow, 2013 will be a year you'll never forget. It sounds like your daughter is not only lucky to have survived her ordeal, but also to have you as her mother!
