Emily,

It's been about 3 weeks since my first and only appointment with you. I have been doing my exercises every day. I am ecstatic to announce that I went on a run for the first time, without pain or discomfort after the first 1/4 mile, in about 2 to 2 1/2 years! I have pretty much been a big emotional teddy bear since you fixed my back, which I guess was really my hip, and had tears of joy about 2 mins into my run. And, as I am writing this email I can barely see my screen from just thinking about it. I was so scared to go for a run, and I have been delaying it ever since my appointment for fear of my hip acting up and having to start all over again. Well I am very happy to say that I was wrong and ran 2.2 miles, and then ran straight to my laptop. I was not anywhere near how fast I want to be, but I am just glad to be healthy again. More importantly, I am glad to be happy again!

Your single biggest fan and promoter,

Shawn Grooms
