Cauda equine syndrom – 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. Den neste dagen, 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.

Vi er tilbake!

Det har vært en lang, langsom tur, men vi er tilbake i det klare! It has been a long while since I've posted. Life has been very, veldig travelt for oss for mye for lenge. Some of what was faced dictated that it would be better to remove this website and youtube videos from public view. For that, Jeg er virkelig lei meg.

Min youtube video har nesten 700 synspunkter på det, så nå er det framover og oppover til 1000! Getting the word out about life with CES. Based on interaction on the internet, det er mer vanlig enn leger forestille. It isn't, men, en setning til din seng eller en rullestol for resten av livet ditt. Maybe not even pain!

For nå, Jeg bare skriver dette kort notat. More coming soon!
