Not letting the pain keep me on the sidelines, I went to the gym to work out and push through the pain. My energy level is still high, and I am noticing that I am sleeping better at night and feel better overall.
The key for me is showing up first. Half the battle is showing up. A good friend Sailiata Fano Jr. sent me an old picture of when we were in Samoa. It was a great reminder of what I used to look like and can get to with hard work.
Thank you to all those who made me believe that it is possible: Doctor Cottam and Doctor Richards, BMI Utah, Salt Lake Regional Medical Center, FOX13, family & friends.
