Pattie Welek Hall, author of A Mother’s Dance: One Step Back, Two Steps Forward, Full Circle, joins me to talk about how she got the phone call that is every mother's worst nightmare. When she learned that her son was in a hospital more than 200 miles away and was in a life/death situation, she was devastated. Pattie will talk about how she was thrust into the caregiver position for her son who had a TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury), and how she and he made it through.
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, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College plans, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slip 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!
