Welp, this made me cry
So many wonderful things have happened in the past year. It's so funny looking back at how things better you as a person. I finished the RN program and am working on a progressive care floor. I think my experience has really helped me to comb through details when big decisions are being made in the hospital. Hospitals make their money off procedures. Cardiac procedures, elective procedures, orthopedic surgeries, cesarean sections, etc. I am so grateful for my experience because it has made me a better nurse for sure. I don't think anything makes you a better nurse than being a patient to be honest.
My bulging disk is still there but I work with massage, chiropractic and I cross train to strengthen the muscles around it. I leave Thursday to fly to Atlanta for the Black Girls Run 15k and will be participating in a half marathon in my home town at the end of the month.
I figure this was bumped because of BWOM's surgery but it was such a blessing to read.
Wishing a speedy recovery and zero complications to BWOM
