Steven’s Story

On 8/13/12 Steven & his brother Aaron were in an automobile accident. Aaron didn't survive the accident. Steven sustained a severe TBI. He was airlifted to CRMH where he was on a vent, underwent a craniectomy & medically induced coma.  On 9/7 he was transferred to Shepherd Ctr in Atlanta, GA for rehab until 10/6.  He began outpatient rehab at Pathways in Decatur, GA on 10/8.  Steven left VA not being able to sit up, he left GA walking unassisted! A MIRACLE! His recovery is one day at a time with God, Mom, Dad, Aaron, family & friends.

Sending our thanks!

Thinking about the special day we had yesterday.  Sending our thanks to my wonderful brother James and his amazing family for organizing the fundraiser.  Thanks to everyone that spent their beautiful Sunday with us and for those that worked in advance here at home to support us!  If I attempted to mention everyone's name I would miss someone, you know who you are....thank you so much!  

As Carlan, Steven and I drove home yesterday we reflected on the day...our memories weren't about a number, they are about being surrounded by family and friends that came together once again to show their support!  To remind us that we are not alone.  The day was filled with so many sweet memories such as hearing laughter, watching children enjoy the beautiful day, taking in the beauty of my Mom basking in the blessing of being surrounded by her children & grandchildren.  I'm thankful I had an opportunity to meet people that wanted to know more about our precious Aaron.  These same people shared tears and hugs as they let me know what an inspiration Steven is to them!  We never grow tired of hearing that we are loved and are prayed for daily!  We can do this one day at a time journey with God, each other, family & friends!  Feeling blessed...thank you!
