This is a photo of my daughter’s 42nd birthday present. We celebrate!
Family, friends and readers of my book, The Unbreakable Cord, you know of her painful journey to walk again after a horrific car accident.
Sixteen years ago, on her birthday she was in ICU. The doctors didn’t know if she would ever walk again. But she fought through the pain of physical therapy. Lately, she has suffered severe foot pain, and others don’t always see what is going on inside another’s body or mind. At last an MRI revealed the cause.
1. Subacute or chronic nondisplaced fracture of the anterolateral process of the calcaneus with incomplete bridging bone.
2. Severe partial tear with split of the peroneal brevis tendon and tendinopathy of the peroneal longus tendon. A partial tear and scarring superior peroneal retinaculum.
3. Partial tear anterior talofibular ligament and calcaneofibular ligament.
I hope and pray we do not pass judgement of others recovery and grief above what God has planned. If you have a friend who is in pain, accept it without them having to justify the reason or have an MRI to justify the pain.The treatment for this is a bone stimulator and wearing of the boot, hopefully to repair the fracture. Then they will address the tears.
So, Happy Birthday my little Sunshine, my fighter. Love Mom
