This Cookie isn’t Giving Up!

16 Dec

Some of you may have already heard, but I finally got an answer on my hip.  I have a laberal tear which will require surgery, however, I am still in the game and really this surgery isn’t going to be a big deal.  It is an outpatient procedure.  I still have to go through the logistics with the surgeon, but once I meet with him, I will know exactly how and when to plan my surgery.  Recovery will be the biggest deciding factor.  If all goes well and I can choose to have it done a little later, than I am going to wait and have it done in August.  I have been dealing with this pain for almost 2 years now so I am going to push through and still compete in the Emerald Cup and then to Nationals in July.  This cookie isn’t done!  I have been through so much these past few years.  I have been poked, prodded, shocked (literally during nerve testing) had over 15 needles inserted into different parts of my muscles through out my entire right leg and had to contract my muscles at the same time!  Pain, isn’t going to be what stops me from doing what I love.

Holding on to the positive and reaffirming my faith and hope for answers and resolutions have kept me going. I have so much to look forward to.  I look forward to the day when I can walk without pain and without having clunking and popping.  I look forward to being able to run again, and chase after my boys.  I look forward to doing fun runs and playing basketball with my oldest son.  I look forward to coming back and competing after surgery and being even better than before.

Thank you to everyone for all of your prayers and support.  2011 is going to be an excellent year!
