There is a very important group of people that I cannot leave out. These people dedicate their lives to help people and they outdid themselves helping me. I do not remember a lot of these great people, since they took care of me when I was in a comma or shortly after that but they did the best job taking care of me. From those who saw me in a comma, to those who saw me complete a 5k and control my epilepsy, you have all been a very important piece of this recovery.
After the treatment my family and I got at Upstate University Hospital in Syracuse, I would recommend this hospital to anyone. All three surgeries on my head where a success, so was the one on my arm. I got to meet Dr. Chin, the neurosurgeon who was in charge of my head. I don’t remember if I told him how grateful I was after my last surgery , but I am and if I could tell him again, I would. To all the nurses who moved me every few hours while I was in comma, made sure I was always clean, let my friends decorate my room, and gave my mom and stepdad a wedding, thank you. You don’t know how happy it makes me every time I hear about the amazing nurses who took care of me.
If my attitude at the rehab center in Schenectady was anything like my attitude when I got home, I want to apologize. That was not the real me speaking. I do not remember my time there, but I have heard a lot about it. Thank you for everything you did to help me and for putting up with me.
To all my therapists and doctors here in Puerto Rico, you never stopped believing in me, you didn’t gave up on me, you helped me walk, talk, eat, swim, believe in myself, control my seizures, and get back to being me. You were not only my therapists, but you became my friends and my life wouldn’t be the same without you.
I want to say thank you to each and every one of you for dedicating even a minute of your time to helping me. I won’t forget that I was taken care of and helped by so many great people.
