"This was me yesterday," she wrote in the caption. "Two hours after I had a seizure....two hours after I fell on my daughter's chest & she watched, along with her brother & grandparents, in confusion & horror as her mommy stared blankly off into the distance & started turning blue."
So frightening! And while Trista has not yet revealed the reason for the seizure, the medical emergency was enough to have her start questioning her own mortality.
"I have an expiration date," she explained in her post. "I've always envisioned that date being sometime after my kids have graduated college, met the loves of their lives and created families of their own, but I was reminded yesterday that it could come anytime, in any country, whether I'm surrounded by strangers or people I love, or neither, or both. I've never been perfect and I never will be, but from here on out, I vow to try my best to live this life to the fullest. To stress less. To love more. To listen. Be kind. Spread joy. To be a better version of myself as a wife, mother, sister, cousin, niece, aunt, neighbor, daughter, and friend."
An amazing sentiment. And yesterday, it seemed like the determined mom-of-two was already living up to her word. She was up and out of the hospital and back on Instagram, where she posted a sweet sightseeing shot with Ryan and the kids.
"They make everything better," she captioned the image, along with the following hashtags: #family #lovethesehumans #grateful #lifeisshort #lifeissweet #lifeiswhatyoumakeit
What a beautiful, happy photo! Life truly is a gift, and we are so relieved to see this brave mama smiling big and enjoying her family!
