This picture was taken in 2003 and it means a lot to me because I was in ICU at the hospital after major back surgery. Two days before this picture I had a very rare and major medical event happen to me. A vein in my back randomly burst out of nowhere, and when I say out of nowhere I mean I was just sitting down doing nothing and it happened. Long story short there was so much blood in my back that it began to crush my spine. Which in time led to me not being able to have any movement from the waist down and I was told I would never walk again and if I were to walk I’d have a severe limp and need a cane. Well I made it out of a long surgery and I was able to move a toe, just one toe. Slowly but surely by the time this picture was taken about two days later I was able to move my legs and walk. Pretty crazy.
