This Friday will be 6 months from the day I fractured by tibial plateau in one heck of a fall at Stowe. When I think back to those first days and weeks after I got injured, what I remember most vividly is overwhelming uncertainty and fear about how, when and to what extent I would recover – and trying not to freak out at the thought that maybe I wouldn’t be able to be as active as I’ve always been. And most especially having been a lifelong skier since age 3, working through that middle-of-the-night torment and doubt about whether or not I’d really be able to come back and ski at the same high level that’s been second nature to me for so long.
I’m pretty darn confident I’m doing to be okay – actually, probably way more than ok. Because my body and movement seems on-track to coming back even stronger than before I got hurt. All thanks to you and your most excellent VASTA crew. You guys have been family to me through this. I am 100% certain I wouldn’t be as far along and my outcome wouldn’t be anywhere near as optimistic if it weren’t for the exceptional treatment I’ve received at VASTA – my new home-away-from-home.
