Kid, I knew you were strong but wow.
I recently requested all of my medical records since 2001. You may have seen it in my stories yesterday but I finally received the MASSIVE stack of records. I spent last night going through them and was turning pages like a book I couldn't put down.
I first broke my leg and it took about 4 months for us to realise that there was something serious underlying and that moment was one of the first pages I read (slide across to read).There were records of conversations in there that Dad had with Doctors when I was complaining of pain after the initial break without us knowing what was ahead of us.
Then the following pages were the doctor's notes from different stages in my journey. Seeing the words "Week 9 of Chemotherapy" then "Week 15", "psychiatric input for upcoming surgery" then "Week 25" & it kept going. The mouth ulcers, the weight loss leading to a feeding tube, the full details of what took place during surgeries (I've blurred those details for you) and all the bits in between. Then to the day the decision was made to amputate my leg. Honestly it was the most mind blowing thing to read, to know that that was your body facing all of that, to know that your parents had to go through all of that. It's just a chapter in my story now but wow if that's not perspective then I dont know what is ⭐

Unsure if you will read this - but I had leukemia when I was 12 and spent 1 year in hospital. I’ve been wanting to get my history for so long but still so scared to read what actually happened
Wow! How does one go about requesting medical records? I had an amputation at 18 months old and to this day have never really known the details other than I was diagnosed with congenital PFFD and had a symes amputation. Everything I know is what I've googled online and it could be wrong. Do they even keep records from 30 years ago?
Hi jess just wondering what process you followed to get all your records? I’d love to get a hold of my cancer records from starship. X
You're SO STRONG🌲
We don’t realize how strong we are until it’s the ONLY option💕 thank you for sharing your story and having a grateful heart. Its very encouraging💚 I have a question for you. It might sound strange, perhaps no one has ever asked it. But, have you ever wondered if all the suffering we see in this world will ever end?
Man. That's tough. Ur a fighter.
This is one hell of a story... Always thought you were inspirational before even seeing this. This is such an open honest post and shows what journey you have been on to be the strong person you are now! Keep inspiring!! 👏👏👏
So strong and inspiring women ❤️❤️❤️❤️
You are a Golden girl❤️
