It’s Family Time!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Well to everyone in Canada anyway. Tomorrow I will be heading out to the lake to spend time with the family for Thanksgiving and to try and do a little relaxing. Things have been really busy as of late and I’ve been pushing things a little too hard. I love everything about this time of the year, the time with family, the great big turkey dinner, the cool crisp weather, the fall colors, and countless other reasons.

For a lot of people Thanksgiving is all about the great food! For myself it’s about spending time with my amazing family. Not just my immediate family but extended family as well. We all have a great time being together, and my kids love getting together with the cousins. Family is the one thing that CRPS hasn’t taken away from me, and never will. I am so thankful that they are in my life!

The last few days I’ve been dealing with some flare ups because of the increased stress. So the slowdown in pace will be good, and give my body a chance to adjust. The seasonal changes in weather haven’t been helping matters very much either. This is where having my implants comes in handy because I just make a few adjustments and I can get through those bumps in the road.

So I have places to go and people to see. Hoping that you all have a great time with family if your celebrating Thanksgiving this weekend. I know this was one of those short posts with no real direction to it but when you think about it there really is. It’s about taking a time out from the world and focusing time on the family. I’ll see everyone soon!

 

 

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.
