5 things I’ve been up to


Some of you know there was a surgery scare as I was having pretty bad pain right after the fundraising event and we thought we might have to operate on this nueroma I have on my residual leg (Rez as we call her).  Two weeks later, it seems to be subsiding and might be good enough in a new socket (hopefully). Here’s what I’ve been up to since:

1.  Adaptive scuba- finished my certification and tested Ariel (swim leg) out on some dives in Panama City beach 

2. Racing my friend Aiden and bekah with all my wheelchairs (the cul-de-sac we live in is perfect for this).

3. Talking to my prison pen-pal on the phone! His name is Tyler and we’ve been writing letters for about 2 years.  Yesterday I talked to him for the first time and it was awesome. He said he’s been so worried about me since my accident and hasn’t stopped praying. 

4.  Running!! No, I don’t have a running leg yet, but yesterday I tried the walk-to-run mode on Xena (in case I’m out and about and there’s a bus coming at me or something- I have to be able to run!).  It’s pretty awkward so don’t judge!

5. Getting carried!  There have been a handful of times in the last few weeks where my leg pain hit so hard that all of a sudden that I couldn’t walk.  I don’t really carry my crutches around anymore, so luckily for me I have an amazing boyfriend and great friends who carry me (shout-out to Vic, Chad, and Tim)!

-thanks everyone,
