Beat The 90% Odds I Was Given.
My mother bought me the book The Secret. Years before that my grandma gave me the DVD and lectured me about The Secret but at the time I didn’t really care. So my story was two years ago.
I was in the process of working with the Phoenix Fire Department and got injured. I was injured so bad I was transferred to a different hospital. My “talus” ankle bone was broken in half and my tibia busted as well. When I awoke from my surgery I woke up with an external fixator on with rods in my leg holding my ankle together. The doctor said I’d have a 90% chance of losing my ankle bone due to it being dislocated and broken for 12 plus hours and getting a bone graft due to Avascular Necrosis “AVN” and not getting the blood supply as needed. To add to that, I could not feel my foot due to nerve damage. I told the doc at my bedside ” I’ll make that 10%!!!!!
My orders were for me to be discharged in a couple of days and come back in two weeks to put screws and a plate to fix what was broken. I was bedridden and on drugs at that point. Those two weeks were painful and difficult times and I hated my wife taking care of me. I did the second surgery and was still given the same odds.
During my process of growth, mentally and physically, I remained positive and started writing things down. I was on the couch for four months straight, non weight bearing and popping pills. I continued to write down what I wanted out of this injury. I am healed, I will walk, I will run and be an active dad and I will beat the odds. I wrote these in my journal and kept knowing and telling myself I will come out on top!
I needed to get off these pain pills but the doc said I will need them to make it through physical therapy. So I decided to cut them cold turkey! Three days!! Three long and sleepless days!!! I pushed and pushed and got off the narcs! Now the physical therapy comes!! Wow! Talk about learning to walk again, painful!
Long story short, I was x-rayed during the course of a year and learned to walk and run again. I was discharged a year later from my injury and my doc said “I never would have thought in a million years you would be where your at and I am shocked!”.
So does The Secret work?? The answer is yes!! You see it started when the doctor gave me my odds at my bedside. I told him no, it’s not going to happen! I wanted a full recovery from the beginning and now it is like I was never injured! The metal does not bother me and my nerve damage has healed. I am grateful for my process of growth and it was the best experience I have gone though besides being a father !
Stay strong people!!!!!
