The time I’ve spent home so far has been great. It’s so nice to have my friend’s home from school. Being around friends has helped me cope with my disability a lot easier. The support I receive from friends and family, I don’t know if I would be able to get through this with out them. I’m so blessed to have such a caring sister. Chelsea put together this book for me that tells my story. From my accident to me at the hospital, going through therapies, to my incision. She also had some friends and family write me letters from when I was in the ICU trauma unit. The book is my story, my testimony of the challenges I over came and still to conquer. It means a lot but there is still some space to be filled, when I’m walking again. I started my out patient therapy today with evaluations from different therapist. I’m very excited to get started with my out patient therapy. I truly believe that with determination and hard work I will walk again. I’m getting stronger everyday, which is so important in my situation because my hands are my legs…for now. I anxious for my pic line to come out so I can start swimming. Once I get into a routine in outpatient therapy I feel that it will help me to get feeling and movement back faster. I ask for prayers of a full recovery and that I can get sensation back in my bowels and bladder. Out of everything the loss of my bowels and bladder has been the toughest to cope with, mentally and physically. I’m not ashamed to say it I guess it comes with the territory but specifically I need some prayers on that. Only time and prayer will tell how far I will get but this is a game of patience and determination. Knowing God is in control and he loves me and only wants the best for me. All I have to do is believe and receive!
Thank you all for keeping up with my blog and for praying for me.
