The War Ain’t Over Yet…

Tonight wasn’t one of our better nights. And, as we drove home, and sorted through a few things, I offered Meghan this outlet.  I told her writing helps me sort out my thoughts and get refocused.  Here is Meghan, as our GUEST BLOGGER….

Tonight I couldn’t finish practice. Yesterday I hurt my knee, my kneecap clicked back out at practice and I got shocking pain through my leg. A lot. So I pulled the rest of practice and iced my knee when we got home. I went again to practice today and hurt my knee so much that I couldn’t continue. I went home in tears feeling like I just failed. I gave in tonight. I lost this battle, but I will win the war. Tomorrow I will not play gym, for I will save my strength for swimming.

So, I will go back to Wagner on Saturday, and I will finish practice and do it well. I love swimming, and I love the pool. When I swim I feel like I’m actually at peace. I won’t lose my favorite thing in the world. I will keep fighting, and Cowden’s Syndrome will not win the war. I WILL.

I cannot be normal, and I cannot play as much as I’d like to with the kids. I always have to watch and be careful about what I do to my body. Well, I am not going to let that stop me. I’m going to succeed and I’m going to live my life to the fullest.

Cowden’s Syndrome may win quite a few battles, but I will win this war. I will keep fighting and I will stay strong. I will get some injuries along the way, but I will recover.

Hey Cowden’s, did ya hear me? The war’s NOT over yet, and you will not be the victor. Take your small victories, for today was one of the days when I did give in, but it won’t be happening again any time soon.
