Dear Kristi Cooper Thank you for your generosity in sharing a bit of your life. The words that are sticking to me the most are Home. Finding home and knowing you are there. My Dad had a TBI (on his bike going to work, hit from the side by a vehicle going 40 mph) this past September. We are facing the potential that he may always need 24 hour care, but those words you wrote give me hope. Maybe I can help him find his "home" and give him as many opportunities as possible to go there.
Helena, I'm very sorry to hear about your father's accident. The road to recovery will likely be long for you all, but every little bit of recognizable home can encourage your father to keep heading towards it. I extend my deepest wishes to you, your father and your whole family.
Thank you Kristi! You are a true inspiration. Reading your post, it is as though your words are mine. I've been dealing with aftermath of a long term concussion and wondering if and when I will return to the old me. You made me realize that 'old me' may never return and that is ok. If I trust my training, I will find my way. There is a reason why we're all called here. Thank you!!
