A Date Has Been Booked!

The date has been booked and now it’s time to enjoy some of life with a reduction in the pain! As many of you know I’ve been waiting for a long time to have my spinal cord implant done. I had really put it out of my mind because I wasn’t hearing anything. The other day I happened to be taking my daughter in for a doctors appointment and my doctors office is in the same office. So I decided to go in and check to see if there was any news. Long story short they had either misplaced my file or forgotten about me but I did walk out with a date of Oct 12! As a result my mind has been doing overtime which has been causing more stress which in turn has been causing more pain. I’ve been doing a lot of praying about it and just asking God to take control. It’s been so long living with pain I’ve forgotten what it’s like without!

So needless to say I’ve fallen behind by a couple of days on my posting because I just haven’t been up to it. With everything going on I had forgotten to mention that I have had the honor of writing a guest post over at my friend Amy’s site http://socialstudiesmomma.blogspot.com/. She is in the process of adopting and so I had the honor of sharing my own story of adoption on her site, so I just wanted to thank her for the opportunity that she has given me.

If you follow my site then you know that I have been trying to add value to it by sharing with you things that have helped me in dealing with an illness like CRPS. I would like to start adding other peoples stories into the mix. So I’ll also be adding those stories along with other people who have overcome adversity. I’ll also be adding new links for people to go to as well so stay tuned for those. I do plan to take this site to a new level and am excited in trying to achieve that. So for now I must go but I’ll be back to post more later!

About Ross

My name is Ross and I want to welcome you to my site. I'm married to an amazing woman who is my best friend, and my soul mate all rolled up into one! I am the father of two very special girls who we adopted from China & Ethiopia. Together we make up one very multicultural family! In 2006 my life was turned upside down when I was diagnosed with CRPS/RSD. It was the start of a journey I never could have expected, and one that I couldn't fight without God. CRPS is a chronic pain disease and it started in my left hand. I lost mobility of my hand and started to experience pain unlike I ever could have imagined. Not to long after my left ankle became affected. I spent the better half of about a year and a half not knowing what was going on in my body and traveling from doctor to doctor to find a diagnosis. As time went by I started learning more about CRPS and all its symptoms that it brings with it! As I started to learn more about CRPS I felt the growing need to share the information I was learning with others and to raise more awareness. As well I want this to be a place where we can connect and support one another. So I would encourage you to contact me if you want.
