    When I wqas 17 yrs old,I fell while mountain climbing in Colorade. I slid approximately .25 of a mile down the lower north slope of Mnt. Antero hitting my head on several big rocks on the way down. My brain was severely bruised in4 different locations,there was a blood-clot(hepiduralhematoma) on the left cerebral lobe,my right lung was partially collapsedandmy left lung had pneumonia in it. I laid for 6 hours(unconciuos) for 6 hrs while waiting for the rescue squad to carry me down off of the mountain. I laid on a gurney in the hospital (without life support) for another5 hours before I was transpoted to Penrose hospital in Colorado Springs,co. Dr. Presti was the surgeon in cgarge if me.
    first of all they had to do a trach on me,then they reinflated my right lung,ridded my left lung of pneumonia,and drained the blood-clot on my brain.then Dr. Presti (gifted neurologist) put my brain back in its’ proper place.I spent 10 days in a coma.
