    36 years post sci today!

    I am a C7 incomplete SCI as the result of a shallow water pool accident 36 years ago today.

    Wow, its been one long strange trip indeed but I'm still here and it is all very good! No regrets, just one day at a time, I don't dwell on what happened yesterday or what may happen tomorrow, for it may never come!

    I am still a Spinal Cord Injury survivor!

    Congrats Gino. I celebrated 38 yesterday, diving accident in the farm lake.
