“On October 3rd, my life changed in a devastating way after a severe accident. Seeing the wreckage, I should not have survived.
After 8 1/2 hours of surgery, I woke up and realized my life would never be the same.
Two plates, 16 pins, a cement shoulder and external rods kept my arm viable, but I never thought in my wildest dreams I would get it back.
After the rods were removed and I started therapy, I not only had doubts and was apprehensive, but I was also in total disbelief I would have an arm to be the mom I used to be.
Weeks went by and looking at the progress I had made, my doubts began to dissipate.
After months of physical and occupational therapy, all of my doubts and apprehension are gone. I have more progress to achieve and therapy is far from over, but I have obtained a true respect for what they do. The progress I have made could not have ever been accomplished without them. Not only have they helped me regain my hope in myself, but they have shown me the strong will I’ve had all along. I don’t know how to thank them for sticking with me through the tough days, but showing me that I’ve been an awesome mother by being a strong example for my daughter.
Therapy not only helped me progress to where I am today, but it also showed me the strong will I had all along.”
