On December 13, 2016, I lost my leg due to a surgical complication. I went to Dr. Kabbani at Henry Ford hospital for my amputation.
Shortly after my amputation I was visited in the hospital by Scott Baranek. He told me all the things I did not want to hear but also all the things I needed to hear. The entire team at Bremer Prosthetics has been there to guide me through my transition back to a functional level.
Although I am at the “first steps” of recovery, I am confident that Bremer Prosthetics will assist me now and in the future. They are always there and willing to help. I am looking forward to returning to golf, dancing, and various outdoor activities.
Realizing the benefits that the prosthesis actually provides us, and how it allows us to live somewhat normal lives, is worth the work and effort.
I have a lot of goals for the future. I want to learn how to surf. I want to go back to work. There's a lot of things that I want to do that I'm going to do.
