I was diagnosed with an annular disc tear in June, and after 6 months of rehab and healing I got the news that the tear is all healed!!!! This is very exciting as it frees me up to do more physical activity!!!!!!!! I still have a lot to do to strengthen and build muscle in my core, but it is really good news :). I’ve got a 6 month rehab plan that will build muscle in my core so that running and other hard impacts don’t hit my spine as hard.. And, I will keep doing Yoga for the same reason, plus its fun.

Dr. Whitelaw and his team at Millennium Chiro were amazing. I highly recommend him as he is the best doctor I’ve ever had, he is patient, explains everything, and can explain things in a way that you understand.

This is bwb’s personal blog, so he can share his thoughts with the world, however scary or silly they might be. Plus family and friends can track what I am up to, and where I am in the world.

I am pretty simple. I love Mangos. I love the ocean (although mostly at sunset, as I’m a ginger). I love to travel, eat exotic food, do long bike rides, read, and use my imagination. At some point, I decided it was better to be a pirate captain than an admiral. I am a globalist and see the entire world as my responsibility and playground. And I am married to an amazing woman who makes life even more fun :)! And we are now the proud parents of Calico Jack :).
