I was born for the second time March 11, 2001. Today is the anniversary of surviving the head injury that landed me in the intensive care for 8 days in the brain trauma wing of the hospital. I had a fractured skull and damage to my frontal lobes. The emergency care there saved my life. The neurosurgeons said I would have been dead within 45 minutes if I had not been brought in to the emergency room in time. I want to thank the people who came to my aid. You know who you are. I will remember you on this date for the rest of my life.

March is an intense month. My mother was born in March. My parents were married in March. One of my brothers was married in March. My other brother died in March. Life changed forever when I was seriously injured and reborn in March.
