MY ROAD TO RECOVERY

I recovered a lot more muscle function than what I had, and I continue to recover more and more each day.

Hi my name is Haley and I am now 16 y/o. On July 2, I had been jumping on a trampoline and pulled my back. Thinking it was nothing but a pulled back, I had went back to sleep. I woke up July 3, early in the morning, with extreme weakness and pain. We rushed to the hospital. By the time we got there, I had limited movement from my waist down. After a couple of days and many tests, I was diagnosed with a spinal cord stroke which left me paralyzed from T10, incomplete. A spinal cord stroke is pretty rare, accounting for about 2% of all strokes. They are not sure what caused it, trampoline might have triggered it, but there was no trama to my spinal cord. I was immediately transferred to a rehab facility. When I got there I had basically no movement in my lower extremities, and sensation was dull but I could still feel touch but the sense of hot/cold and sharp/dull were barley there. I couldn't even sit by myself at first, not to mention be independent. After 3 1/2 months of intense therapy, I left completely dependent of taking care of myself. I also can now use my hip flexors to walk in braces. I recovered a lot more muscle function than what I had, and I continue to recover more and more each day.

Collapsible text is perfect for longer content like paragraphs and descriptions. It’s a great way to give people more information while keeping your layout clean. Link your text to anything, including an external website or a different page. You can set your text box to expand and collapse when people click, so they can read more or less info.
