    Very informative site you have here. I was cut off on my motorcycle, by a car on June 1st 2009. I sustained a C2 fracture. The fine men and women of Brigham and Womens hospital in Boston were able to fuse my injury. I still have lingering effects form the accident i.e. numbness/weakness in the right side of my body. I also am still seeing double from the accident. I was in the hospital for a month and a half, but considering the location of my injury I am just glad to be able to type this.
    Keep up the good work with the site

    Hello! I think you are doing really well typing this!
    Something that surprised m about SCI is how everyone is affected so different with injury in same area. Hy husband is C3 and no movement or sensation below shoulders. No change since his fall in Oct 08.
    Hope to hear more from you.

    Welcome I saw you pop into chat but you left right away. Dont be a stranger. Welcome to the site, though I wish you never had to find it. Welcome to the family.

    Hey Ed -- welcome. There's more useful info here about truly living well with SCI than anywhere else, real or virtual. I look forward to getting to know you better and seeing you around the site. :-)
