At least this one works…

Quick story for my followers…

This morning I went to see a surgeon for a consult about my back. Two surgeries down and I still live with chronic pain. I like to think I have a pretty good attitude…but as Kelsey and I are sitting there today I started to feel sorry for myself but it didn’t last long. It was like I was failing one test after another in his office. Needless to say, if it was a pass or fail exam – EPIC FAIL.

However, as he proceeds to test my reflexes in my leg, he taps my knee expecting the typical “leg jerk” and nothing. The look and his face was priceless. Even better were the words that followed. He goes “well there’s your problem son, your dead here.” I wanted to say “no s***” guy, that’s why I am here” – but I didn’t. Something clicked. I am not dead, in fact, I am more alive than ever. My leg might not work so well but God gave me two. My back may hurt everyday when I wake up, but at least I woke up. Kelsey Rose had to help me put my shoes on after the appointment…but at least I have shoes to put on…

People…if you haven’t caught on yet, this is a common theme in my posts and videos. Life sucks sometimes, but it can always be worse. Get back up when you fall. I’ll tell you what, if I have learned one thing about myself throughout my life it’s that I can take a beating but I will always get back up when I fall… will you?

Doc…see you again in a few weeks.
