Just about an hour ago they pulled the tube out of his lungs that was helping him breathe…He was definitely uncomfortable, stunned and lethargic. The awesome thing was that he knew his name and his brain activity is normal. He will recover physically and mentally, but psychologically he has a long road ahead of him. This kid is such a special person to me because A, he’s my sponsee in AA and B, he’s cheated death and has literally hit his bottom. Sometimes one has to stare death in the face to bounce back into gratitude, love, serenity and most importantly, for alcoholics and addicts, Sobriety!
