2 weeks ago my friend Chris woke up. Which is great cause his birthday was last week. From what I've heard from his mom and another friend who visited him soon after he woke up, his memory is still foggy. At that time he didn't really remember anyone including his daughter, his friends, his age, where he was, why he was there, what the date was. He also had a short attention span and would forget that he already spoke to you. He was calling another friend of mine by another name. But the good thing is...he is NOT blind as they predicted. He CAN hear and he CAN talk! His mouth had to be reconstructed but he can get his message across. He an even get up and walk around. As you can imagine this was the most amazing news we can could ever get!!! Considering how his recovery could have went. I could care less if he remembers me but as long as he has his life. On Weds. Nov..6th my friend sent me a pic of him. He's in a hospital gown, his hair is super short (he previously had side show bob hair), and he is sitting on the edge of his hospital bed playing with a rubiks cube. When I received that pic..I was all smiles. It was the best feeling. Even though I've been hearing such great things, to see it for my own eyes was what I needed. A friend of mine & I had been putting off visiting him, because we wanted to give him some more time to recuperate. But after we saw that we couldn't wait for the next day to come so we can FINALLY see our friend. The next day comes and felt we were all excited, nervous and anxious. We weren't sure if he'd even remember us. But, the visit wen great. Chris remembered all three of our names. We just hung out in his room for like 2 hours..and it felt like things were back to normal. I asked him if he had been listening to music and he said no. So we made him put on his ipod and it felt like we were all back in my living room. I will say he is still the same guy I've know. He kept cracking jokes..so he had us cracking up. He is a little different..but not much. He basically told me that someone sat him down told him what happened and whats going on...and maybe whats to come. He said that it's all sinking in to him that he's been out for almost 2 months and he can't account for any of it. His talking was a bit confusing but I could get the gist of what he was saying. While we were I kept telling him " You don't know how amazing and crazy it is to see you " His mom then went on to tell us..that it really was a miracle..and maybe the power of prayer. The dr''s say it's unexplainable. There was a nurse in the room and she kinda just started telling us that she's only seen one other person on the that floor ever recover like he has. I apologize for this ridiculously long blabber..but his story deserves to be told.
