It’s been a week now since i been home from being in coma and paralyzed mom also still wired shut due to the TMJ surgery get the wires cut off Thursday then have to wear rubber bands for about 4 to 8 weeks for sure it was the scariest thing waking up last Tuesday morning not knowing where I was what had happened to me I have a very vague memory of anything that happened just really bad PTSD now and going almost 3 weeks without solid foods have lost 15 pounds

You have been through such a traumatic ordeal.

Have they cleared up the infection now? I guess so, or you wouldn't be allowed home ??

Hope all goes well on Thursday. It sounds like it will be a long recovery though.

Do your pain meds work well for you?

I will keep you in my prayers.

God Bless
