Kauda 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.

Tuko nyuma!

Imekuwa muda mrefu, safari mwepesi, lakini tuko nyuma katika wazi! It has been a long while since I've posted. Life has been very, busy sana kwa ajili yetu kwa muda mrefu sana kiasi. Some of what was faced dictated that it would be better to remove this website and youtube videos from public view. For that, Ama mimi kwa hakika pole.

Youtube video yangu ina karibu 700 maoni juu yake, hivyo sasa ni kuendelea na zaidi ya 1000! Getting the word out about life with CES. Based on interaction on the internet, ni jambo la kawaida zaidi ya madaktari kufikiria. It isn't, Hata hivyo, adhabu kwa kitanda yako au gurudumu ajili ya mapumziko ya maisha yako. Maybe not even pain!

Kwa sasa, Mimi tu kuandika kumbuka hii fupi. More coming soon!
