A Connection Through Cooking

A Connection Through Cooking

Growing up I had a wonderful childhood. Every night I indulged in watching my mom cook meals for my dad, my sisters, and me. Watching Mom is where I found my passion for cooking. This however would prove to be quite the chore from a wheelchair.

A Mother's Journey with Her Son, Part 3

A Mother's Journey with Her Son, Part 3

After three weeks in the Intensive Care Unit, Josh was ready to be airlifted by private jet to the Shepherd Center. This trip was delayed for several days due to his very low blood pressure. Finally the day came and he was loaded up and ready to go! I left hours before Josh did, in hope arriving before he got there. The timing was perfect. Within 15 minutes of my arrival, he arrived in a local ambulance that met him at the airport.

In addition to his C5-C6 incomplete spinal cord injury, Josh sustained a fractured pelvis, perforated bladder, fractured sternum, fractured left elbow, T4 compression fracture, and contused lung from nearly being impaled by a large stick just below his left scapula. The elbow fracture would require surgery to repair. However, we had to wait on this due to his dangerously low blood pressure.
