Cauda kabayo sindrom – 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.

Nagbalik kami!

Ito ay isang mahabang, mabagal na biyahe, ngunit kami ay bumalik sa malinaw! It has been a long while since I've posted. Life has been very, masyadong abala para sa amin para marami masyadong mahaba. Some of what was faced dictated that it would be better to remove this website and youtube videos from public view. For that, Ako talaga paumanhin.

Aking youtube video ay halos 700 nakakita sa mga ito, kaya ngayon ito ay pasulong at pataas na 1000! Getting the word out about life with CES. Based on interaction on the internet, ito ay mas karaniwan kaysa sa mga doktor sa diwa. It isn't, gayunman, isang pangungusap sa iyong kama o sa isang wheelchair para sa natitirang bahagi ng iyong buhay. Maybe not even pain!

Para sa ngayon, Isulat ko lamang ang maikling tala. More coming soon!
