Cauda equine syndrome – my personal journey.

Three YearsLooking Back at Having CES


I was looking at a picture on my phone the other day, cleaning off those that have been transferred to the computer. I came across a picture I took of 2 men ice fishing on Indian Lake. 20130209_130638 I didn't know why I had kept that particular photo. Then I saw the date - 02/09/2013.

I didn't know it, but my life was about to be altered forever. The next day, while doing yard work, I moved a concrete splash pad a couple of feet. Unknown to me was that a disc in my back, the L4/L5 disc, had ruptured. It was pushing forward, into the Cauda Equina, the place where your spinal cord splits off into the root nerves that run throughout your body below your waist. As it pushed, the nerves compressed.

You may read about Cauda Equina Syndrome on another page of this site. I have adapted to a new life, a different life. So this is a celebration! Another anniversary in the books and I am still living a useful life - loving my wife, working, teaching, mentoring and striving to leave a positive & challenging legacy for that time when I no longer can do the things on this list.

Kita balik!

Kini ang usa ka taas nga, hinay nga biyahe, apan kita balik sa tin-aw! It has been a long while since I've posted. Life has been very, kaayo busy alang kanato sa daghan kaayo taas kaayo. Some of what was faced dictated that it would be better to remove this website and youtube videos from public view. For that, Ako, sa pagkamatuod nagsubo.

Ang akong youtube video adunay hapit 700 views sa ibabaw niini, busa karon nga kini mao ang sa unahan ug ngadto sa itaas ngadto sa 1000! Getting the word out about life with CES. Based on interaction on the internet, kini mao ang mas komon pa kay sa mga doktor mahanduraw. It isn't, Apan, sa usa ka hukom sa imong higdaanan o sa usa ka wheelchair alang sa uban sa imong kinabuhi. Maybe not even pain!

Kay karon, Ako lamang isulat niini nga mubo nga mubo nga sulat. More coming soon!
