Bob Calvert, host of ?Talking With Heroes? on Blogtalk Radio, will be my guest this week. Bob has made numerous trips to Iraq and Afghanistan where he talks with and brings hope to the troops serving in our military. Did you know TBI (traumatic brain injury) is the signature injury of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars? Estimates state that more than 11,000 troops are affected with brain injury because of explosions from IEDs (improvised explosive devices), and many more troops experience concussions from blasts. Often there are no obvious effects of brain injury until much later. So what happens to troops in the field? How can a commanding officer identify a troop who has a concussion? What happens to troops when they come home with brain injuries? Bob and I will talk about how his show helps troops in the field and about the problems they face when they return home. Caregiver, Jeannette Davidson-Mayer and brain injury survivor, Juliet Madsen will join Bob and me. Every TBI survivor and caregiver has encountered a fork in the road that has diverted his or her life-plan. A car accident, a fall from the roof, doing one more chin-up, an IED blast, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slips from reality as dreams turn to struggle. These unexpected life-happenings that divert one from his or her chosen path in life can be devastating. But as Yogi Berra once said, ?If you come to a fork in the road, take it.? Life is all about choices! To learn more about me, please visit my blogs. Survivng Traumatic Brain Injury Blog: survivingtraumaticbraininjury.com Donna's Blog: donnaodonnellfigurski.wordpress.com
