Siondróm eachaí cauda – 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.

Táimid ar ais!

Tá sé le fada, Turas mall, ach tá muid ar ais i soiléir! It has been a long while since I've posted. Life has been very, an-ghnóthach linn le haghaidh bhfad ró-fhada. Some of what was faced dictated that it would be better to remove this website and youtube videos from public view. For that, Tá mé go deimhin leithscéal.

Tá mo youtube video beagnach 700 tuairimí ar sé, mar sin anois tá sé ar aghaidh agus aníos le 1000! Getting the word out about life with CES. Based on interaction on the internet, tá sé níos coitianta ná a shamhlú dochtúirí. It isn't, áfach,, pianbhreith a chur le do leaba nó cathaoir rothaí don chuid eile de do shaol. Maybe not even pain!

Chun anois, Liom scríobh ach an nóta gearr. More coming soon!
