Cauda syndrom ceffylau – 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.

Rydym yn ôl!

Mae wedi bod yn hir, taith araf, ond rydym yn ôl yn y glir! It has been a long while since I've posted. Life has been very, prysur iawn i ni am lawer rhy hir. Some of what was faced dictated that it would be better to remove this website and youtube videos from public view. For that, Yr wyf yn wir flin.

Fy fideo youtube wedi bron 700 barn arno, felly yn awr mae'n ymlaen ac uchod i 1000! Getting the word out about life with CES. Based on interaction on the internet, mae'n fwy cyffredin na meddygon yn dychmygu. It isn't, Fodd bynnag,, brawddeg at eich gwely neu gadair olwyn am weddill eich bywyd. Maybe not even pain!

Am y tro, Dim ond yn ysgrifennu nodyn byr hwn. More coming soon!
