“I came in today not being able to walk on my right foot. I left walking normal and not in pain. As I sat in my car after leaving, I cried. I cried because it has hurt so bad for so long and now it doesn’t. Now I have the tools to get better. I will be diligent. I hope it works. But right at this moment….I can walk. I can work. I can take my dog for a walk. That alone makes me cry. I am so pleased and even more thankful. You have more than made my day. You have made my dog very happy. Thank you. See you in four weeks.”

He plans on completing a 100-mile endurance ultramarathon one day.
