braininjuryallianceofnjThis #TBIaffectedme story comes to us from Laura (@goowengo) about her young son.
Owen suffered a traumatic brain injury while playing at home after a tomato cage fell on top of him and punctured his skull & brain. He had three brain surgeries in the first 24 hours. He was not expected to survive his third surgery. The doctors removed a large portion of his skull to allow some room for his brain to swell. He was placed into a medically induced coma, and required breathing & feeding tubes. Not only did Owen pull through but he is surpassing everyone's expectations! He’s had to spend 3 months in the hospital and participate in countless hours of therapies, but Owen is once again home and living life to the fullest with his family.
