Resolution Baby Blower Fireworks

Happy New Ray!

Upon sharing my three edited x-rays, that were originally created in 2015 for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas, I realized that my TBIed self had missed the last significant date of the Holiday Season…New Year’s Eve/New Year’s Day. With that being said, I decided to go ahead and make up for my TBI of a mistake and create the New Year’s version of Stanford ER x-rays (featured below)!:

While writing this post to my recovery blog AND speaking of the New Year I might as well share my list of 2018 New Year’s resolutions!:

  1. Update my recovery blog at LEAST once a month
  2. Do a physical and/or therapeutic (PT/OT) exercise session once a day, EVERDAY
  3. Attempt to get my South Carolina drivers license:
  4. Move recovery blog from MacchioTrustFund.com to SlowlyButSurelyTBI.com in FULL and FULLY redesigned
  5. Follow through with my PT/OT goal of living on my own, for the MOST part, once that comes to a reality (details on this resolution to come in another post later this month).

With those five resolutions being made known to the rest of the world I find it necessary to end this post with the following… 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

Palo Alto Hospital Holiday Xray

Merry X(-ray)mas

Below is the third installment of my Stanford University Medical Center x-ray taken in the ER, before my neurosurgery was performed, with holiday twist. I know it’s once again slightly belated, but the holiday season will put everyone in over their heads…especially for all of us TBI/ABI survivors. 😜

With that being said, I hope that you all had a Merry Christmas! I know I did, but not for the same reason of receiving gifts that I had as a kid. Rather, I’ve grown to appreciate spending time with my friends and, more importantly, family as I’ve ticked more years on to my age. But, I have grown to appreciate ALL of the loved ones that I have around me more so since my accident and thinking that I could have very well not been as blessed as I have been from the very get-go of my accident, to today and what the future has in store for my #slowlybutsurelyTBI of a recovery.
