  • Meeting a guy injured 64 years

    Just got off the phone with a nurse at hospice. She asked me to visit a man who's been injured 64 years. Pretty incredible and looking forward to meeting him and hearing of his wonderful life. I wonder if I can get him interested in handcycling or basketball?

        Wondering if hospice might be the only option for respite care for his family. Is he a higher level Pat?

          We have one other place for respite care but may have been full. I think he's a quad Karl, not sure. Will be interesting to talk with him. Not too many out there like ole SCI55.

            Please give us an update after you see him. I would like to know the level and extent of his injury, and if and where he got rehabed. I wonder if he is a Korean War vet. The times seem about right.

              Will ask those questions. I asked if he was service connected injury and he said no. Will also give him this forums address.
