My 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.

Our Health Magazine Article

Apr 15, 2014 12:51pm

I am attaching the link to the Trauma article featured in Our Health Magazine (http://smcclintic769411.uberflip.com/i/291903). It was surreal as I went through the interview process with Becky Blanton and was the same for each of us as we read it.  We truly didn't know ALL that was involved in the trauma of that evening, but we do know God was there....for example, had the weather been different the helicopter couldn't have landed.  The right people were in place from the first critical moments and remained in place during Steven's miraculous recovery!

Recently Steven asked some very hard questions regarding the accident.  Hearing him ask these questions hurt my heart for many reasons.  I know for him like us he is trying to make sense out of this life changing event.  As we explained to him, even if we knew what happened that night it wouldn't change anything.  We have to keep our faith, trusting God especially on those "I can't do this" kind of days and wait on Him to show us His plan!  Aaron is with us every day and one day we will be together again.  Aaron touched lives through his brief but AMAZING 26 years and is continuing to do just that through his journey to his Heavenly Father!  Our prayer remains that our story can somehow be an encouragement to other hurting hearts.
