2020..... It’s been a year.
Still on the road to recovery from my June 13th 2019 open surgery for the condition MALS. (Median Arcuate Ligament Syndrome)
Recovering from my December 11th 2020 AT (Auto Transplant) of my left kidney from Nutcracker Syndrome.
In the past decade I have undergone 5 surgeries, not including times I was under anesthesia for tests and procedures, LASIK twice, wisdom teeth removal.....
I no longer have a gallbladder, or an appendix, my sinuses were ballooned, a ligament compressing my diaphragm was removed, and my kidney is on the other side of my body now.
I still have multiple chronic health conditions, on a genetic level, and fight against them daily.
But my goal isn’t to complain that I have a mountain to climb.
It’s to show others it can be climbed.
“If you’re going through hell, keep going.” - Winston Churchill
And it only seems fitting that on New Year’s Day I find out I’m Covid positive.
What a way to wrap up a decade, and ring in the new year.
