9780865348097: Adam's Fall, Traumatic Brain Injury, the First 365 Days

On a warm summer's evening, while riding his bicycle with his girlfriend down a gentle slope something inexplicable happened. Suddenly, Adam flew over his handle bars, bounced on the street, and crushed the back of his head. TBI--traumatic brain injury. In that moment, Adam's life and the life of his family changed forever. Like tens of thousands of other young people who probably rode their bikes that day, Adam was not wearing a helmet. Adam s Fall tells a very personal story of a young man's struggle to survive first while in prolonged coma and then to heal and to recover himself. It is a story of the heroic efforts of doctors, nurses and therapists who saved his life and of those who have since supported his healing. But mostly, it is a story of a family facing every parent's worst nightmare, a story of faith and of hope that continues to unfold in often surprising ways.

Review:

''This book will help physicians and nurses, as well as respiratory, physical, and occupational therapists to understand the struggles of their patients and their families. [And it] will bolster the faith of the family in the midst of dealing with a loved one with severe head injury.'' --Randy Jensen, MD, PhD, Professor of Neurosurgery, Radiation Oncology, and Oncological Sciences, University of Utah

''Although this book is geared toward the lay audience, health practitioners would gain valuable insight into the emotional struggles involed in the recovery of TBI from initial injury and hospitalization through the rehabilitation process. As a healthcare practitioner, it is important to recognize there is more to TBI than the accute phase; TBI has profound, lifelong effects on patients and their families. Adam's Fall reinforces this aspect regardless of the audience. All in all, this book is enlightening and reminds us how quickly life can change.'' --Journal of Neuroscience Nursing

''Reading this book will provide health care workers with ideas to help meet the needs of patients and families who have been through the experience of traumatic brain injury.'' --Critical Care Nurse, April, 2012

''In this labor of love, the author describes his son's medical progress, including reflections on a variety of procedures and treatments Adam received and how the family arrived at decisions regarding them. ... Survivors of TBI, who sometimes must evolve into people with different futures than they expected, with different abilities, predilections, and feelings, will be inspired by Adam's determination to come back to himself and to his loved ones, and to once again make a contribution to other.'' --Shelly D. Timmons, MD, PhD, Geisinger Health System, Neurosciences Institute, Danville, Pennsylvania --Journal of Neurosurgery, February, 2012
