It will be some time before my pack will be on my back. In the meantime, it makes a great source to rest my arm. I like to keep my hopes and dreams close and having my orange pack strapped on my back where it belongs represents a goal to reach.I learned I have a high tolerance for pain as was eventually quoted to me by those in the know. My thoughts were ice, elevation, Vitamin I would heal the problem as that was all I felt was needed for what I was feeling. I carried on with daily routines without much discomfort. Time passed though and there was no improvement, so I sought out professional advice. This past week has been quite the adventure and more so the past five days in the hospital have been filled with learning experiences and eye openers. This adventure to date, has left me with an abundance of reasons to be very appreciative of the kindness & compassion I received from every level of health care provider I came in contact with at the Peter Lougheed Center and the Calgary South Campus.
We all have mountains to climb in life and I know I have a big one right in front of me. I'm ready to begin this long climb and I look forward to reaching the summit.
