I have too many titles to pick one.
2020..... It’s been a year.
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.
