I was able to attend the first 4 1/2 hours of the Parelli show in Puyallup, Washington today, sadly I could not stay for the entire show or return tommorow for the remaining show. The rods (screws) in my pelvis cause great pain in my hips and back when sitting too long on hard surfaces or trying to walk on cement or hard surfaces. Still I made it today and I am grateful to my husband for helping me acheive this goal.
Two years ago I was in a life threatening car accident my select pelvis shattered in six or seven places, illium, sacrum and coccyx leaving me with permanent screws in my pelvis. I am so very grateful to my Surgeon Dr. Chip Routte of Harborview Hospital in Seattle, Washington as without his extensive experience, education, passion and knowledge I would no doubt be in a wheel chair or have to use a cane.
Being able to park in the handicap parking and walk into the fair grounds and sit to watch the show was a huge accomplishment for me as even last summer I was not sure I could ever return to the fairgrounds again a place of great fun for the summer fair and rodeo events. I just did not think I could ever withstand the pain it took to walk on cement or sit in uncomfortable seats again but I did it. Never give up!
Never give up, pray for everything in Jesus Christ name and be thankful for all of your blessings.
GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!
