"And you don't have to change a thing, the world can change its heart" -Alessia Cara

Tonight I was thinking back to November 15, 2017- the day before my surgery. I had the understanding that I was going into a surgery to straighten my leg bones, go home the next day or two, work with my fantastic outpatient physical therapy team (who I miss very much and who I knew would help me get even better than I was before), and get back to normal life engaging in everyday activities such as driving and going back to college. I worked so hard at driving, college, and PT just a few months before.

As I was replaying what actually happened, tears filled my eyes and my heartstrings began to pull... I spent a month in the hospital and rehab with a mixture of therapists and complications. I came home just to go back less than a week later. I was told I had to withdraw from a semester, I am back in school (online) now but very tired and in pain the entire day. It’s a lot harder than before, but I’m making it. I am on homebound healthcare services and for lack of better words, most of my care providers haven’t done what they are supposed to and have been very disrespectful. If you are in the medical field you are supposed to help others heal, not make them feel worse mentally or physically by not doing your job. I don’t know if I was crying tonight because I was proud of how much strength I’ve had to have to get through this, that I miss my accomplishments and the people who have helped me get there or a little bit of both. I knew my life would change with this surgery, but not this much, but God’s Plans are always bigger. I’ll get back to where I was. Just better.
