I have often wondered how becoming a SCI paraplegic will affect my life span. Tonight I began thinking how old I will be when I can no longer lift myself to do transfers and other things needed to take care of myself. Then I started about that some where out there is the oldest SCI para or quad.

I am still active albeit battling some pretty nasty pain.
I will be 54 years old in Nov. of this year
I am 4 years 2 months post SCI.
I was 49 when the accident occurred.

Just thought I would stick the questions out there.

1 - Who is the oldest SCI paraplegic or quad still maintaining an active lifestyle here on Care Cure. (i.e. still working, living independently, working, carrying out a daily routine of some sort... etc. Not bedridden folks.)

2 - Who is the oldest SCI paraplegic or quad you know if it is somebody other than yourself and/or not on CC?

3 - How long has that person been para?

4 - How old when SCI occurred?

5 - How old is the record holder for age only as a SCI para or quad?

6 - How old is the record holder for age and living longest as a SCI para or quad?

Anybody ever think about this?
