No quit here HD...no point to going through all that surgery and PT unless I'm gonna ski my butt off.
Seriously, my skiing passion was what carried me through many dark and depressing days of recovery. There were days I would study adaptive skiing because I thought I might lose the leg, and I spent time thinking about kayaking as a substitute in the summer. Some days I would just wonder how I managed to do that to myself and there were times I just sat and cried.
My love of skiing was always the light at the end of the tunnel. Making a full recovery and returning to the sport with a vengeance is one of the greatest personal accomplishments in my life.
