    Oh yeah. I go there quite frequently to talk to newly injured patients. There are more rehab options now so they don't get as many SCI as they used to, but they still do SCI rehab.

    OK! Time to reapply to the Guinness Book of Records the honour must be yours now!

    Many congratulations to you and your good lady.

    Enjoy your well earned dinner.

    lol! After my failed first and last attempt at gaining the title I vowed to never pick up a Guinness Book again. I concluded that it is just another money making venture that was no better than tabloid quality. Wally Dutcher was listed in the book as the longest surviving quad but his injury occurred in May of 1956. However he was a year older than me. GBR seemed to be focused on age rather than post injury time. I tracked Wally down and we continued to Skype from time to time. Sadly, Walley died this past july. His wife died a couple of months earlier. They both were struggling with major medical issues that arose a year or so earlier. By all accounts Wally was a great guy and an SCI pioneer like most of us oldtimers.

    You can educate many of these fresh out interns and premed doctors to be.

    Now it's time to write your memoir. You have gain and experienced a lot over those 62 years. Incredible!

    This world we live in today needs that wealth of information you have gained over the decades. Put it in writing. Find an editor or writer to help you or let them write for you while you share your life experiences.

    Didn't give up. Didn't throw in the towel but kept on going.

    As my doctors tell me, "Keep doing whatever you're doing!"

    I did write an abbreviated autobiography for CC members a few years back. Because of the sensitive nature of some of the content it is not for release to the public at large. If you read it you will understand why I keep a brown wrapper on it. Here is the link:

    They contacted me a few years back. I said I would be glad to contribute but they never followed up.
