    Default Recent near death exp.

    During the last 6 weeks or so I haven't been very active here on A/C. The reason was medical as I had to have several surgeries. During phase 1 my heart stopped beating twice and they had to use the paddles to restart it.

    At some point I also developed septis in my lung, which required an exploatory surgery to locate the source and take care of it. I am still in the process of learning exactly what happened, and figuring out how much I want to know.

    After spending 3 weeks in ICU at the OSU medical center I am in a long term care facility for therapy and recovery.
    I miss my friend Matt McQuinn he touched so many lives, and in the end gave his life to protect someone that he loved. I am proud to have known him, and of the choices he made when it mattered. You were a true hero.

    I wondered where you've been. I'm glad you're back and on the mend towards a full recovery. I'm sure it was scary for you and your family. Medical stuff is never pleasant, but it sounds like you were in good hands.

    Take care, Brad, and get well soon.

    Best of luck with the recovery! Hopefully it all works out. Thought it was a bit too quiet down here.

    I managed to walk 30 feet during therapy with the the assistance of an aide and a walker.

    Tests today to find out if I can get off of the feeding tube. Feeling good about the outcome.

    Feeding tube was discontinued a day or so after the tests and have been on a normal diet since then. In therapy I am practicing walking up and down stairs. I have 27 staples down my back/side from surgery and they should be removed today.

    Sounds like very good news.

    Keep up the good work. Probably could've ended up so much worse. You probably appreciate things now that you never knew should be appreciated.

    At least it's progress. I know it's show, but it sounds like you went through a lot, your body needs the time to heal. Give it time, I know it's hard and frustrating but you're getting there. I hope you're family is doing okay, I know it's hard on them. I feel for you. Keep fighting. :thumbup:

    The Dr. just stopped in and we were talking after his exam. He said if everything stays on track I can go home next week. I will have to have a nurse at home from 9-9 Seven days a week, and will have to come back here daily for therapy.

    Glad to see you back. Also glad to see you on the road to recovery. Hopefully you can get some of that turkey dinner. Just got back from a one hour local ride on my ninja in 50 degree weather and saw this thread. Sending good vibes your way brother.

    This thread is in unacceptable condition; UNACCEPTABLE....
