a few words can not begin to express my gratitude for all the great members of HAZ that have been there when i needed them most
as many know i have a low tolerance for nonsense when folks seek help or share adventures
on the same token i'm rather awnry, live for laughter and have a deep family trait of never giving up and only accepting the best
more on that in a site clarification I plan to roll out when i'm back to snub dubbed HAZ Values
which will explain how i was raised and why I created HAZ
ICU was great, they called me the wild child
out of all the positives i cherish my physical trainer Allison the most
Friends, family and neurosurgeons tried to convince me i'd be okay
It just didn't resonate until Allison yelled out in the stairwell as I ascended floor after floor
"JOE slow down, you are wearing me out"
I knew at that split second everything would be okay
naturally I asked Allison to find something more challenging and she delivered in spades
my balance test
the next day had my quads screaming and sweat rolling down my face again
t'was the greatest challenge in my life followed by the sweetest reward ( Allison cleared me for independent mobility )
i kept my fall risk bracelet as a reminder to the dark lonely weeks of not being allowed to stand without alarms and swarms of nurses intercepting my mobility
viva la HAZ, thx to the great community that is helping me through this journey!
I am back on HAZ where I belong. It's no secret I have a lot of healing and work on the horizon.
The best help for me now would be for all to get along, welcome new members and politely guide those that need help using the site ( private messaging is the ticket, public corrections have no place in this wonderful community
