First and foremost I am a mother of two beautiful girls 9 and 12. They are my inspiration and reason for not giving up everyday! I have learned to live life differently but still live it to the fullest. I just went waterskiing last weekend at an adaptive ski clinic! I require a caregiver everyday of my life but have accepted that as part of my daily routine. I attend live professional athletic events (I get great seats now!), work at the same company post injury that I've worked for for 25 years, cook, drive and do many of the the things I used to do. Gave up cleaning my own house, but don't miss that!
