An Important Date to Remember

As my treatment for my Osteomyelitis started back on April 2nd, forcing me to enter a world of no showering and no working out, it was a tad devastating to be honest. Then my Infectious Disease doctor, Dr. Richard Lester at Vancouver General Hospital, and his team agreed to allow me to start walking on the treadmill, just 15 minutes a day. Everything was going well until my PICC Line dressing kept coming off due to sweat and a rash forming under the tape of the dressing. So the nurses at Wound Care agreed that the working out had to stop until we were given the all clear, meaning when the PICC Line came out.

After two months of no shower, just a sponge bath, and also getting back into my workout routine. YAY!

Osteomyelitis is a tough battle as you never know wheen it will flare up again, but hopefully never, ever again!

I am 28 years old, from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. I was adopted at the age of two due to being born premature with a brain condition unknown as Hydrocephalus. Today, I continue to battle both physical and mental health issues, but in my spare time I blog about my journey in life for others to read. All you can do is take life one day at a time. Nothing more, nothing less.
