If there’s one thing we can always count on…it’s change. After years of my back supporting me through three decades of competitive sports, the births of two beautiful children and more difficult situations than I can remember…the time came for me to give my spine the care it needs to carry me through the rest of my life. So…a few months ago, I had some serious hardware added to this vital yet delicate structure…6 screws and 4 rods were attached to my lower spine during a double level spine fusion surgery.
I am now doing really well…feeling a little more like myself each and every day. I think this is going to be a long journey…longer than I’d like…but I’m committed to returning to my previous strength and activity level. I know I’ll come out of this experience healthier and stronger…and one centimeter taller!!!
I’ve come to realize that when it comes to our personal challenges, as long as we keep putting one foot in front of the other, we are moving forward…no matter how small or slow the step.
Our bodies are amazing…
Medical technology is incredible…
Life is beautiful.
