Chance Encounter

As I was sitting in a coffee shop this afternoon chatting with an old college buddy, through the window I watched a car pull into a handicap spot. Out came a girl on red millenial crutches, crutching her way into the store with her mom by her side. I said to my friend, "I bet that girl had PAO surgery." I recognize the walk and the crutches. I also knew that we weren't too far from my surgeon's office. Of course I couldn't resist asking if she had PAO surgery, and sure enough she did! After a few more questions we figured out that we actually "know" each other, as we've talked online many time and are actually friends on Facebook! What a small world. Nice to meet you in person, Marcie! Looks like you' are doing great and are right on target. Look me up next time you're in town =)

Oh, that is so cool! I am another Z PAO patient (10 days before Marcie), and those "chance encounters" are so awesome. Would love to meet all of you one day...

It was wild!! I was so happy to finally meet you in person, D! I will definately look you up next time I'm in the area:)
And we should try to get a group of Z girls together too...I'd love to meet all of you in person as we've gotten a really great support system through each other on line.
