<B><i>Horizons of Traumatic Brain Injury Recovery

This book tells the story of the worst possible human injury — brain trauma — but with a full recovery. A surface read finds a medical case study. Below the surface lives an uncommon love story. But at the deepest level is a story of faith in God, determined hard work and recovery. The injury occurred as a young man impaired on marijuana turned right on red and struck the 69-year-old pedestrian in the crosswalk.

To relieve high intracranial pressure, surgeons removed a hemisphere of Martha’s skull. They evacuated large intracerebral hematomas caused by the contusion where the car struck her right temporal lobe.

Severe traumatic brain injury requires 1-3 years of recovery. Martha’s took over two years. Surgeons and physicians noted her remarkable recovery. Five months after the injury neurosurgeons replaced her skull bone.

The book contains medical, surgical and therapy records that document the before and after conditions of Martha. It also contains police and court records of the driver’s crimes and case.

Martha felt Our Father’s help and assurance during her long recovery. Tom received a poem giving them a promise and him an assignment:

I have done what only I can do; I always do what is best.
You must do what only you can do; I leave to you the rest.

This set the pattern for Martha — full recovery, and for Tom — her caregiver. Visit link text
