Tony!










Most of you know I work at Utah Valley Regional Hospital in the Neuro Trauma Rehabilitaion Unit. I absolutely love it. I love the people I work with, the patients and their families. About a month after I started we got a new admit. I was so scared! He came in with a trach, feeding tube, he was on a vent to help him breathe and he was not able to move his body...not even facial expressions. I was afraid of taking care of him because I had never seen someone in that condition before. Well, 4 1/2 months later he is able to go home! He is off the vent, he can eat, talk and move. He can even stand up. This man amazes me beyond belief. His wife is absolutely incredible. I love both of them so much. Here are a few pictures we took his last week on our unit. His wife has been blogging since he was hospitalized. On his site, it tells his story. There are also videos of his progress. After looking at his blog and watching the videos you will know why I love my job. There are also pictures of him and his family before his stroke. I saw those for the first time tonight and it broke my heart. Please just take a few minutes to read his story, look at his pitctures and watch his videos. They really are truly inspiring. His website is TLMackey5.spaces.live.com
