Just let her know she is not crossing the Atlantic and lucky she is not on the Balmoral cruise that is underway now heading to the site of the sinking.

Exclamation Dove too deep . . .

On April 20, I was severely injured from a diving accident while on a cruise vacation with family & friends to the Bahamas. I sustained multiple neck fractures and a compressed spinal cord injury. I was medi-vaced to the Del Ray Trauma Center in Florida where I had surgery for 7 hours to repair the injuries to the neck. After 2 weeks of treatment & care there, I was flown to Boston's Spaulding Rehab Hospital in Boston for treatment. I finally made it home a week ago. I'm expected to recover in about a year with out patient therapy.


I have no paralysis. Thank God!
