Time For A Holiday!!

Hi Everybody! Well I’m back from a couple of days out at our cottage at the lake however I’m only back for a day. Tomorrow we head off for vacation for about ten days so during that time I won’t be putting any new posts up. I would usually take my laptop with me and update from where I am going, however I won’t be taking it with me this time. The next post you will see will be around the 14th of July when I get back.

This is a much needed vacation for the family, and gives us a real chance to unwind from everything that we go through on a daily basis. I’m hoping that it will be a distraction from all the pain, and that when I get back I will feel refreshed and ready to get back to the day to day. I’m really starting to feel as of late that a break from all the doctors appointments and just all the physio is really needed. It’s time to have some laughs with my family and just enjoy hanging out with them.

My pain lately hasn’t been good. More often than not I’ve been having bad days with my pain. It really seems to have gotten back to the same roller coaster of good days and bad days. It’s certainly making me want to have the implant done tomorrow. I’m really hoping that when I get back from vacation I’ll have made up my mind one way or the other. I can’t really say one way or the other why my pain has gotten so bad again. The weather where I live has gotten quite hot and the heat to some degree makes things worse.

While I’m away I’m going to take the time to simply allow myself to forget that I’m in pain 24/7 if that is possible. I want to be able to come back refreshed with new topics to blog about, as well as be more motivated to keep up the fight. I would really like people to suggest some topics that you would like me to post about. Feel free to ask me your questions, or other topics that you’d like me to post on. For the time being however I will see you soon and check back for a new post after my holiday!!

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 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.
