So the past few weeks have made my body ache. 2 weeks ago, my younger brother injured himself during a pickup basketball game at his university. He was told that he partially tore his Achilles tendon but he probably and he was in good spirits and .
This past Tuesday, however, after the Orthopedic surgeon looked at his MRI, he found out it was completely blown and it required surgery. It hurt my heart even more when he was told that he wouldn’t be able to perform athletically for the better part of a year post surgery. It hurt because, outside of his intense studies, sports are his life. I can’t possibly imagine how it feels to be sidelined from a vital section of your life.
Although, the constant ray of sunshine that he is, he’s remained positive through the situation. My family and I leave Sunday morning to be by his side for his surgery, which is Tuesday.
Requesting your prayers, positive thoughts, and well wishes,
