July is a special month for me every year, especially this year.
This year Ill turn 28 and celebrate ten years since my amputation. I know that sounds weird, but it is kind of a day to celebrate.
July 24th of 2003 is a day to celebrate the anniversary of because it marked the day that ended a two year struggle. In two years I had about 6 surgeries/procedures (some I traveled for) because of all of the issues with my knee replacement, I was constantly in pain and, at one point, it was best for me to use a wheelchair while I was in high school. (I actually stopped using it my senior year, against my mothers wishes…so maybe it was best for me the entire time.)
Other things Ill do this month?
Speaking of Dr N., I saw her Friday! I had fewer tests than I would have liked to have… (strange idea, for most) but what I did have done showed positive results. Ill see her again in December, but I am to call her if I have any painful side effects from the meds. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen!
Here are a few photos from my visit!
Im sorry Ive been over loading you guys with photos! I just can’t help myself 🙂
