My first time I am doing something of the sort, I want to give you some basic background information about me.
I was born with my esophagus not properly attached (a tube that connect from the throat to the stomach). Because of this, I had a surgery. Not only was it successful but also set the stage to develop scoliosis, a simple s-curve of the spine.
My parents started sending me to my first chiropractor due to the condition of my spine. This went on for a few years until it was no longer working for me. Thus, I did special exercises twice a day, and once every six months, I would go up to Orlando for an intensive treatment. None of this was easy, but it helped build me for what was about to come.
My doctor introduced me to new treatment, a soft scoliosis brace, for my spine. I was in a need of a major operation because my curve was worsening. Before the doctor stunted my spinal growth, my parents and I were determined to let me keep growing for as long as possible.
The soft brace added two extra layers of clothes. It was hard not only to keep up with wearing the brace twenty-four hours a day but also all the exercises and special breathing patterns. All in hopes of correcting or preventing my curve from getting worse.
After all the efforts, my doctors had given up hope. They believe the soft brace would not work and surgery was not optional. It was that summer I was prepped and sent into my first major scoliosis rod surgery. Though, this surgery was a bad one. My spine got straighten, but if left for too long, I would have been paralyzed in my hands and right foot.
So, I waited a week in the hospital before they could try the surgery once again. It was a success this time. I was up and walking and sent home two days later. I am going to miss being in bed all day. Hospitable is like a hotel but it’s for sick people.
Since then, my life has changed.
Now, you know my background, my story, and my struggles. I think you are now ready… ready to hear how I got to where I am on my next blog post.
