  • AhhOWWW!!!

  • Uhhh whattt??
  • Your back has gotten worse..
  • I struggled in sports with a lot of continual back pain, but I didn't let that stop me from playing. However, it came to a point when I had no choice but to let it stop me. 
  • Beep Beep...
  • She's asleep. Let's begin!
  • Okay, we have a long day ahead of us.
  • Anytime I wasn't playing I had to wear a back brace, even while I was trying to sleep. It was very difficult to ever be comfortable. I struggled with this brace for nearly eight years. 
  • There's a long road ahead of you... But you can do it!
  • Hopefully with time you will regain movement and feeling in your leg.
  • Dribble, Dribble, Shot!
  • One day when I went to the doctor I found out I needed surgery. I was very upset and extremely worried. My doctor warned me of the possible risk of the surgery, but in the end the risk of my life greatly outweighed the risk of not being able to be as active anymore. 
  • The doctors had to screw two titanium rods into my spine to straighten it.  The surgery was nearly 10 hours long! That wasn't the worst part for me though. It was the days after that were the biggest struggle for me. 
  • There were a few complications with my surgery and I lost feeling and movement in some parts of my body. Therefore, I had to go in for a second surgery. I was very determined to regain movement though, and I fought through it all. 
  • After almost a year I was able to play sports again!  Despite a great recovery, I still have a lot of problems with my back. I will never let that hold me back though because I don't want to give up the activities that I love.  I would much rather endure the pain of playing than the pain of having to keep myself out. Being able to play sports is an amazing privilege that not everyone has, and I am so happy to have gotten that back!
