Leaving “Sleepy Hollow” hospital after spending nearly all day there yesterday (31st December) having tests, but they couldn’t find any brain activity – just some polyfilla where it was meant to be!
But otherwise nothing to worry about (as the hospital is still standing!)

The immediate aftermath and consequences of traumatic head/brain injury (TBI)

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI

My/our story is a bit different, rather ‘crazy’ – ‘unique’ m says….and she’s always right (I checked on the net…and ‘yes”, seems to be correct!).

At age 15 I suffered a serious closed head injury in a midget car racing accident in Cape Town, South Africa, where I was in a coma for a long time . Since my diagnosis (very traumatic) over 25 years ago after “emigrating”, together with many struggles in the working environment many years later in Perth Australia, I have been researching, studying and writing books and articles in this field. My other blogs in this area at http://www.headbraininjury.wordpress.com  (which recently got mentioned in Yahoo News USA ) www.livingwithheadininjury.wordpress.com

and http://www.traumaticbraininjurytbi.wordpress.com   may be of interest.

Update On My Mom

God's Whispers of Truth

What’s up everyone, this is Julia, editor in chief of my mom’s blog. I thought it would be helpful for you all if you knew the whole scoop on the eye problems my mom is having.

She has been experiencing issues with her eyes for almost three weeks now. She is unable to read words on screens or in books because it irritates her eyes and makes her nauseous. Her doctor told her this past Monday that her brain is tired and needs a rest. Therefore she will be taking a short period of time away from her blog to recover and hopefully heal her eyes. There are still some unpublished posts she has that I can post during the interim of her healing. I will be taking the comments she receives from now on, whether I respond to them myself, or write the replies she dictates to me. She…
