On March 13, 2021, I was skiing with some friends in Vermont.
While I do not recall the day itself, I was told that I had a very bad fall.
I woke up in a hospital in New Hampshire, paralyzed from the neck down and attached to a ventilator.
I was told that I damage my spinal cord at the C1 C2 Junction.
I was in the ICU for 2 1/2 weeks before I was transferred to Spaulding rehabilitation hospital in Boston.
I spent 4 1/2 months there, doing intense rehabilitation, getting off the ventilator, and learning how to drive a wheelchair with a straw.
I also learned how to use assistive technology.
I was then transferred to a hospital on Long Island where I live call Glen Cove Hospital.
I was there for four months before I was discharged to an assisted living facility where my family and I lived while our house was being renovated.
The TV show George to the rescue to receive a complementary house renovation with an elevator among many other things.
I finally moved home nine months after my accident I have been living at home since.
