ADR Recovery

This blog chronicles my recovery from a new type of major back surgery, Artificial Disc Replacement (ADR). I injured my back at L5/S1 when I was 9 and have always struggled with back pain, but was unable to walk after a minor car accident in ‘05. Research became my second job and with the support of my family and friends, I decided go under the knife. My intention is to keep my friends updated while I recover and help others who are suffering with back pain understand the recovery process.

GMA Pictures!




LEFT: Robin Roberts, Dr. Tim Johnson, and me, right before camera's started to roll. Behind Robin were several camera's and lights, it was difficult to focus on her and not read or watch what was happening around me. I still haven't seen the segment, but was told I didn't curse, say Umm or look stupid, so overall I'm pleased!

RIGHT: The wonderful, Dr. Tim Johnson took me on a mini-tour of the GMA studio before I left for the day. He snagged Charlie Gibson in Times Square so I could say hello. Upon meeting me, Charlie said "I've seen you dancing on World News Tonight 4 nights this week; you've been on more than I have!" :0) Talk about making a girls day!
