My body knows best


Week 4 It has been my goal to get rid of the walker as soon as possible.  I have intentionally focused on engaging my back and leg muscles to work together in order to build up strength and mobility.  As I continued to listen to my body, my confidence increased.  I decided I could manage…read more.

Keeping a positive frame of mind, while expanding my healing

Changing of the guard… keep on keeping on


My personal Physical Therapist had to return home.  Her assistance through the week was invaluable.  The thought of being without extra help was a little distressing for me and my husband, but we didn’t have to face that inevitability just yet.  We were blessed with our oldest daughter coming to assist us for another week.…read more.

Intuitively aware


With the exception of two cracked ribs, I had never broken a bone.  But, when I heard the loud crack (a sound I will never forget) as I landed on my back on my garage floor, my body immediately told me, “I have broken my back!”  My intuition was speaking loudly and clearly, and I…read more.

Introduction
