Greetings! Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers. Many of you are visiting my blog because you've heard about my situation. This site exists because of caring and concerned people like you. Many of you have asked for a platform to donate; so, we have put together this blog.
To clarify my situation, I went in for a routine meniscus surgery on 8-2-12. After an unusually extended amount of time on crutches and then a walker. Doctors later discovered on 1-23-13 that I had a herniated disc in a very unusual part of my spinal cord. After visiting with several surgeons they recommended removing the disc because it was pressing on my spinal cord which affected my lower body functions.
Doctors moved forward with surgery on 2-25-13. After surgery I had no feeling waist down. I was a paraplegic. I was released from hospital after 35 days of extensive rehabilitation. Today I am bound to a wheelchair. I had to have my home modified to accommodate my new reality. There are so many people to thank for contributing to these improvements. I am forever grateful. With the mounting medical bills your assistance has been a true blessing.
I am presently in physical therapy several times a week to build my strength and learn to do things that I used to take for granted. While my situation was indeed unexpected and is unfortunate, I have embraced it. God is truly at work in my situation and my life. With that said, I ABSOULUTELY plan to walk again! My focus has been Faith, Family, Friends and Fitness!
Thank you again for your encouragement, your continued prayers and (if you feel led) your gifts.
Love you all, stay blessed!
