My surgery is coming up and it can be a stressful process both pre-op and post-op. I’ve become accustomed to a certain routine that I follow to make sure everything goes smoothly and as stress-free as possible both before and after surgery.

I’m a firm believer in guardian angels. I believe my great grandparents are my guardian angels and watch over me and are with me at all times.

This past Thursday (July 27), I finally saw my geneticist after waiting three months for this appointment. I saw the same geneticist that I went to when I was a sophomore in high school. My orthopedist referred me back to see him so we could discuss what to do to try to strengthen my bones … More Geneticist
As many remember, I went to the orthopedist on June 27th to figure out what we were going to do about my hip and knee pain.
