His girlfriend arrived to the city where he is at the moment but he doesnt want to see her, i think he is being shy of his situation. It hurts her a lot but even doctors said no to her for a time being until he is stabilised otherwise they are afraid of panic attack etc. I wish you all the best and strength in your work for further recovery.
    Hi Adema. Your brother is much different than I am in terms of personality. I wanted and was allowed to have, my girlfriend and family with me from the very beginning when I was in ICU. I went through many health problems including tubes down my throat, pneumonia, fevers, high anxiety, panic attacks, completely drugged up and saying stupid stuff, and the inability to move any limb. Since the accident I have pretty much lost any inhibitions I've ever had about my body and situation.

    good luck to you and your brother,
    Fred

    This low BP is really driving me nuts. I've passed out a dozen times with no end in sight. The doctors tell me it should improve over time but I'm getting impatient. I'm on two different medications to help with the problem and to keep fighting the fight.

    My husband fell from a tree in Oct of 08 and is C3. He is only 5'8" and it seems like there is not a lot of head room in our van even for a short person in a chair, so I can see why it would be hard for you.
    He has a lot of low blood pressure issues too. He was a pipefitter and also a veteran.
    I have heard Madison is a nice city. I hope there is a good medical center there.
    To counteract the height issue I have, I purchased a Ford E250 van. I haven't seen it yet though. I started the buying process while I was still in the hospital. I should be getting it in a couple weeks. I don't know much of anything about these types of vans. I hope the Ford E250 is a decent product. I had it customized with a raised roof and a lowered floor. with my height I didn't see many other vehicle options.

    I hope your husband had a good Memorial Day weekend. Tell him thank you for his service to our country.
