Glad to have you back.
I am sure you are taking the time to count your blessings.
Life can slip away too easily to take it for granted.
I would want my surgeons hand to have all the guidance possible.

When I got THT to reopen my account I was gratified to see pages of posts from you.,..my friends. I can not tell you all how much that meant to me. Thank you all. Laird
This is AWESOME news. Welcome back Laird. Your family must have been incredibly strong and helpful during this journey.

What was your original screen name? BTW we had another member , A Few Dollars, that went to Sheppard Center for his rehab. As you know that's a world class facility.

Great to read this. A close friend is recovering from a 6 week induced come. I know it's a long road back.

Best wishes to you and your family.

Great to hear from you again Laird.

As for brain damage - we'll be the judges of that.

Laird,
That's awesome news! Nice to hear some good news on here for a change and I imagine something like this gives one a different perspective on life and the things that really matter.

Take care!
