Some Words of Encouragement-

Filed under Uncategorized

Hello everyone.  I ventured back here to see what was going on in the ATR world.  I just wanted to give some positive news for people who are just starting out in this long process.  I have stated in my earlier blogs that I had a great doctor and a quick recovery.  I am now 3 months shy of 2 years since my achilles tore playing basketball.  This sport seems to be a common theme among all of these reports.

I returned to playing basketball 8 months from my injury.  I was a bit nervous, but all went well.  I have now been playing 2-3 times per week for the past year plus.  I also am able to run 2-3 miles and do everything that I was able to do before my injury.  I have spoken to people who have blown out there knees and never recovered, so I guess the achilles was better to injure than my knees.

I guess I just wanted to say keep the faith.  I know that right now it seems like you are going through hell, which you are.  There is a light at the end of the tunnel.  You WILL return back to your old self and be able to do all of the things you love to do.  I have made it and so can you.  Good Luck.
