Since I was a young girl, I’ve always had a lot of energy and it’s carried through to adulthood. I stay active and enjoy hiking, boxing, spin classes, and dancing. My husband is a trainer so he keeps me on my toes as well. In mid-September, I was injured by a student with special needs who intentionally shoved me from behind in my lower back. I immediately scheduled several visits to our chiropractor for treatment and believed my body would bounce back from this minor setback.
In the past seven months, I have spent countless hours attending physical therapy, acupuncture, and doctor visits to improve my condition. My MRI tests show multiple tears in my back and right hip; resulting in chronic pain. I will meet with an orthopaedic surgeon this week and am hoping for a positive prognosis. My Father is the greatest healer of all and I have faith that I will be able to walk without limping and resume my normal lifestyle.
I believe that God is stretching me and causing me to grow through this pain. I have been given several opportunities to minister to people during my rehabilitation and try to keep focused on blessing others while I endure this challenging season.
