8 months post anoxic BI and Russ is coming home for 8 nights! He is still improving...i hope our story gives hope and courage

So im bringing him home for 8 nights this time. I have him doing outpatient PT and its amazing so far. He is strong and just needs people to believe in him. He walks well with his walker, talks up a storm with only a small slur at times, long term memory is great, short term is too and still improving, he has goals and dreams. At 6 wks i was asked to end his life...now hes texting me, calling me, we hang out, talk about our future..he is 90% back. The drs cant tell us exactly whats in store, maybe in some cases. I just hope our story gives even 1 person strength and hope when its needed because thats what has kept me going. A lot of crying, a lil xanax, but i always turned to this site !

Merry Christmas everyone, let's keep proving miracles happen.

Lovely story Angelia. It's always uplifting to hear how folk with brain injury can beat a bleak prognosis and regain a good measure of normality. Russ is quite a champion & obviously determined not to be beaten.

Hope you both enjoy a really special Christmastime...……… 🎄🙂
