With all of the recent changes and challenges, we have all had to adjust, and re-adjust our expectations and goals. Every day we are working hard to get to where we would like to be, while constantly reevaluating what “success” looks like and how to achieve it.
Many of you know what happened to me this winter: while on vacation I came down with Guillain-Barré Syndrome, which was caused by a reaction to a flu shot I received in October. I became paralyzed from the neck down, was placed on life support for four and a half weeks, spent 78 days in Florida hospitals, and later received excellent outpatient care at Vanderbilt University Hospital in Tennessee. It is not possible to describe how difficult, painful, and scary it was to work to regain control of my muscles and re-learn how to breathe, move my arms, use my hands, and, ultimately, walk.
