Long way to go. But the important thing is he’ll get there.
It’s been two months since Kevin Ferrer ruptured his Achilles tendon in his left foot in a PBA On Tour game against the TNT Tropang Giga.
It happened with a little over 14 seconds remaining in the second quarter as he was going for a rebound. He went down, visibly in pain, and got wheeled out of Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City right away.
Days after the surgery, the Terrafirma Dyip winger expressed optimism as he posted a video of him putting up shots in a cast.
The road to recovery only keeps getting harder, though.
In an Instagram post on Monday, Ferrer shared that at some point, uncertainty clouded his mind.
“There are a lot of things that entered my mind. What will happen to my career… my future… my family… etc,” he said.
Good thing his wife always got his back.
“She is always there to motivate me. She reminds me that everything will be okay and just pray, surrender, believe and trust GOD,” he said in the same post.
While he knows there’s a long way to go as far as recovery is concerned, he keeps reminding himself to trust the process.
“Reminder to self: Never get tired. Focus on your recovery first and everything will be fine,” he said.
