Today is the one year anniversary of my amputation, but more importantly, it is the one year anniversary of being cancer free!
This past year has gone by incredibly fast. It seems like so long ago when I was going in for my amputation, so much has happened since then! After my amputation I had one more round of chemo, learned how to use a prosthesis, returned home to Atlanta, returned to work, revamped my golf game around my new leg, and acted in a national television commercial before my leg pain started and put me back on my crutches.
A lot has happened this year, but here on the anniversary I find myself laid up in bed again, recovering from another surgery on my leg. Ah, familiar territory!
I had surgery this past Monday to try to alleviate the pain in my leg. The doctor ended up sawing off a bone spur that had developed rather than cutting the nerve like we thought he was going to do, so we’ll see if this alleviates the pain or not once the pain from the procedure calms down some. If not, we’re just going to have to go back in again! Good times, good times. Haha.
But enough about that… God has been incredibly good to us all throughout this past year and has manifested Himself in so many ways. I couldn’t be more thankful for everyone’s support as I have adjusted to this new way of living and I have no doubt that this would have been near impossible to try to do on my own.
All in all this has been an amazing year, and I can’t wait to get back on my leg again and keep pushing to see what else is possible!
