Transformation AND Throwback THURSDAY!
1 year ago tomorrow I had one of the scariest days of my life. I had to undergo urgent surgery and got scared half to death by an anesthesiologist just as I was going into surgery ! He was telling me the risks of the surgery (clearly that was already established with the millions of pre op testing that I needed) but it came off in an AWFUL and stressful way! I was panicked, shaking, and just trying to keep it together because my husband was freaking out and if I melted down it would have been alllllll over!
I was 29 weeks pregnant, underwent successful back surgery, got gestational diabetes, walked in a 5K 6 days post op, and was off work for about 6 months! It sucked at the time but 1 year later I’m a mommy to a happy, beautiful, tough as nails 9 month old baby girl!
That experience taught me that I can do hard things! I may have a few freak outs and breakdowns ... but I figured it out and got through it! It’s just like the saying tough times don’t last, tough people do! #tbt #transformation #caudaequinarecovery #surgerywhilepregnant
