  • 1. The First Link
    By: Kristen Sell
  • 2. June 7th, 2007
    I graduated from high school with a great plan for my future.
  • 3. Seven days later, on a camping trip with my family, I was kicked by a horse and shattered my tibia.
  • 4. I was scared I wouldn’t make it.
  • 5. Surgeons inserted a rod and four screws into my right leg. They also found out that my swollen right wrist was full of badly pulled ligaments. I spent the rest of that summer with a cast on my arm sitting in a wheelchair.
  • 6. My wrist swollen to almost the size of my knee
  • 7. I was scared I would never walk again.
  • 8. Laying in the hospital after my first surgery
  • 9. The stitches in my knee
  • 10. I was scared that nothing would ever be the same.
  • 11. Obviously, I made it through.
    I am more than able to walk, now.
    Nothing is really the same as it was before my surgery.
    I am more than okay with the changes, though. Things change and I have no control over that. Life has taken me down a completely different path, but I am confident that it is the right path.

    Seven days after my high school graduation and the first link in an unending chain of events that would lend a hand in molding me into the adult I continue to become.
