yea but... i almost wonder if it's worth living if you're paralyzed from shoulder down... u know?
especially for someone who played ball as a pro... must be tough as hell... poor rodgers. he was always a good guy in the league... this is very very tragic.
Haha depending on the level of injury and if he suffered a brain injjury as well, he'll still be able to function. Definitely not like he used to, but enough to have a quality life.
That said, I still feel awful for the guy. In 2001, I fell 18 feet from a treehouse and shattered one of the bones in my neck. I couldn't move or do anything for weeks...they thought I might never. In total, I spent probably over a year in rehab hospitals getting surgeries and learning how to do everything again. It's the hardest thing I've ever had to go through. Its very humbling, but I don't wish it upon anyone.
Although for the most part I've gotten better (still can't walk all that well...not really at all at the moment and my sensation is not the same in some parts of my body and I'm in pain a lot), I'm a lot better off than a lot of people I met in the hospital. I'm still good frieds with one of the guys I met in there and he can't do like anything. He still lives his life though.
Its scary how within a split second you're life can be totally turned upside down. One minute your fine, the next you're laying in the hospital bed unsure about the rest of your life. My thoughs and prayers are with Rodney and his family. Its very sad. I hope he recovers well.
