Aloha Michael, I so enjoyed your book. I am a TBI survivor. After reading "Head Cases" I realize how fortunate I (we) were to have received the care we did. I was 6m pregnant and had a head on collision with a water tanker...I was in a Volkswagen Rabbit and 6 months pregnant. No air bags at the time so my seat belt ruptured my placenta. My daughter was born 2.2 lbs with cerebral palsy. I was in a coma for 2 weeks and when I awoke was paralyzed on my left side ..due to right side brain damage. It was a horror show! This was 1991, I'm a dental hygienist and was able to return to work about 1 year after my accident. , it was a small miracle we survived. I'm in NJ presently visiting my daughter who has her degree in computer analysis and is working on a degree in psychology. I live by the chant "Do not squander your life." Glad to hear your daughters are well.They are so very precious!!
