A Family Forever Changed

As many of you know, several weeks ago my life changed forever. On April 7th, I was mountain biking with my husband when I hit a rock, flew over my handlebars, and landed on my head. After 7 hours of surgery to repair 4 broken bones in my spine, I emerged paralyzed from the chest down. I am now in rehab learning to live my life as a paraplegic. I am optimistic that I will re-gain feeling in my legs and will make a full recovery. But, until then I've got to learn how to live with my current condition. I have been trying to update my progress on Facebook, but I've decided I'd rather chronicle my journey on my blog. I am working on compiling the happenings of the past 4 and half weeks and will add that in when I get it done. So, here it goes. Stay tuned.
