Sunday, December 10, 2017

Yes it has been a while since I blogged but this is what is going on..
I am disabled, I fell on December 24th 2014 in my driveway which caused terrible things happen to me..
1) I lost my ability to walk
2) I have problems getting out of chairs
3) lost the use of my hands only limited use
I dislodged a bone in my neck in the fall I had surgery Oct 15, 2015, I have now a cadaver bone in my neck and a plate and 4 screws..
Next will be my lower back, life is not the same for me I was so active now I'm like a 90 plus yr old at 58 yrs old..
EVERYDAY I so want to get on my treadmill like I did before but the pain is terrible..
I'm trying everyday to bring me back..
BEST yet I have not gained weight THANK GOD..lol
BUT I am so sorry I have not been on here like I use to be..
SO this is why..

    emoticon I'm hoping your struggle is easier now. You had quite a challenge put on you. I hope you are overcoming it, inch by inch, foot by foot! You have been such an inspiration and SP remembers you! emoticon

    I was once told I'd be in a wheel chair for the rest of my life. I was in my mid 30's. I couldn't/wouldn't accept that and kept rolling around the floor, wiggling my feet and all sorts of things until I could walk again. I'm in my mid 60's now. I am not in a wheel chair, thank the good Lord! I can't run but I don't want to take for granted what I can do.

    So sorry to hear this. I hope the surgery helps with the mobility and the pain.

    So very sorry to hear this Chris :-(( That was a catastrophic fall!! Congratulations on keeping the weight off! Most folks would fall into a food pity party. You are amazingly strong and resilient and if there is any way to get some of your life back, I am sure you will find a way. I hope they can do more for you.
