Only time can heal Fading Scars--a true account of one family's journey through Traumatic Brain Injury. Paige and Mark -- both divorced, paramedic/firefighters -- brought two families together in the face of adversity. When a tragic motorcycle accident leaves Mark in the ICU, and their family in turmoil, Paige finds herself for the first time on the receiving end of a paramedic's empty promise: "The doctors are doing all they can to save him." But saving his life was only half the battle. In the months that follow, Paige learns about the mystery of Traumatic Brain Injury from the perspective of one who knows enough to hear a prognosis, and evaluate the real meaning behind the words: that her husband may never again be the man she fell in love with. In this true-to-life account, Paige draws on her family, the strength of her fellow fire fighters, and her faith to face the truth of her true love's Traumatic Brain Injury...and live through it. Told with blunt honesty, ripe humor, and bittersweet longing, Fading Scars is a must read for readers seeking a compassionate tale of hope through painful diagnosis.
