    Hey Sharon, I read that your child has as spinal cord injury. I was wondering if you would be able to do some type of survey for me about your son's spinal cord injury. All information is for a statics stand point. Let me know if you and your son would be interesting. Maybe I could shoot you an email?

    Sorry for the delayed response. I was paralyzed (C7) in an MVA in Charlottesville in 1986. I was 17. I am sorry to say that the first year are two are by far the worst. I had a great network of support. It is hell on earth coping with it, but it does get less difficult.

    I am in avery different place with SCI than your son is. He has more time where he could see some return. Keep looking for treatment. In my opinion, exercise-therapy is the only thing worth paying for now. As far currenty, I just exercise moderately the muscle I still do have - more so for generally health than for recovery.

    I would tell him even without more recovery he can have a great life. I have a graduate degree, a successful career, 3 kids fantastic kids, and a superwomen as my wife. He is not a a place to entertain such a vision - with a wheelchair as part of it. And that's how it should be. Keep fighting the fight and good luck.

    I'd be happy to chat anytime.

  8. Cheesecake, we are heading to KKI next week. After visiting 4 rehab facilities on the east coast I was very impressed with Kennedy. I have called Ronald McDonald House as well. Once we are settled the plan is for one parent to stay with Rob at all times we will alternate 3-4 day shifts each week. The information provided by CDRF was invaluable!

  10. new here..first post.. looking for info on Kluge Rehab Ctr in Charlottesville VA. My 14 yr old son Robert had surgery to repair a significant spinal fluid leak, ended up with a blood clot that injured/compressed his spine at the T4. This just happened last week, my head is spinning trying to understand what is happening and what his future holds. We are originally from NJ, now live in VA, Robert is a huge Rutgers fan! Any information you can provide to a frightened mom is appreciated. Thank you.
