Just want to let you know that I got a follow-up MRI and the fracture in my leg is no longer visible!! Hurrray!!!

I'm planning on incorporating a serious weight training program into my rehab and will keep you posted!

My legs seemed to be getting better in September but instead of resting my body, I pushed my recovery (just walking more than I should) and the injury is screamin' at me to take a…Continue
