Last Visit of 2017!

When the nurse asked me to rate my pain on a level of 0 to 10 today, I said zero. ZERO. I don’t think I’m completely out of the woods yet, and I have a lot of work to do building my upper-body strength back up, but today was pretty huge for me.

Dr. Sacks was similarly thrilled, and it was a nice visit all around. Some reminiscing, some wonderment at the difference that was made in my life, and his admiration of my homemade Star Wars skirt – I think I’ll make him some surgical hats for Christmas! I can’t say it enough, really, and I may also say it on camera for Dr. Sacks’ office at some point in the future, but he and his team saved my life. I can’t imagine living how I did before. I’m so thankful it’s a memory growing more distant every day.

No more checkups for a YEAR! A YEAR!!!! Woo!
