Hi, I want you to know, that you're not alone in this. I've been reading about you for the last few years, as 29 October 2012, I have also been shot. Twice to the head and once through my arm. The one bullet had been removed from my brain, but the other is sitting right smack in the middle of my forehead. It had been a long road to recovery, but I am working and driving again. My mom is still alive and I have 2 brothers and I love them to bits. I cannot thank friends and family enough for all the prayer circles that went out for me. I am almost 54 and are getting married on 24 September 2016, and are so excited about this. I had a 5% chance of survival but I made it, even though it was a struggle most of the time, I made it. You are in my prayers every day. Be strong!... and I love reading your blog, even though I struggle to get into it sometimes. God Bless!

Dear Rachel, 

Thank you for adding me! Drue is my son's preschool teacher, and I can tell she cares about you SO MUCH! She told me about your blog after I revealed my own diagnosis to her. Thank you for sharing your story. You are such an inspiration and give us all HOPE. 

Prayers and Blessings,

Jessica DeShetler

MY name is Diana Lopez. I live in Bradneton, Florida. July 27th, 2013 My 4 year old son Davien was shot in the head when a car was shooting at another car in front of our house. Throughout this past year it had been the most stressful time of our lives. My son suffered bilateral frontal lobe brain damage when the bullet pierces through his left temporal side of his head and traveled down and across his face and logged in his right jaw while fracturing it. The bullet tore through his right optical nerve making him completely blind in his right eye. To look at him now you wouldn't be able to tell that anything has happened to him besides from seeing the scars. Physically he his fine, we are now trying to deal with the anxiety, mood disorder, PTSD, ADHD, Intermittent Explosive disorder and him being blind in his right eye. You are very brave, and very strong.

Hey Rachel,

I'm De'Antrel. I'm a student at Poject Search at Grady Hospital. Ms Kropp is my teacher. We were talking about the past students today and your name came up. We found your website and I just wanted to tell you I am happy to see you success. Your picture are nice and you look great. I hope you have a great year. I am graduating from Project Search on May 29th. This program has made me very happy because I learned a lot from diffient jobs sites. My favorite site is the coffee shop because I like to soicalize with people and learn about the food and cooking. I hope you write me back.

Your buddy, De'Antrel Walker

my sister in law was admitted last night with a brain bleed, origin unknown, that bleed, filled her skull with blood, forced the brain to move to the right and for a large part of the left side of her brain to be damaged by the bleed and clot. They removed a large part of the clot and today, a follow up cat scan has determined her left side is perm. damaged, and tissue is dying. She is in a coma and the Dr says <5% chance she will live.

Please tell me what you can that I can bring to my brother and his two children to encourage them at this difficult time. I KNOW she is fighting. I KNOW she wants to see her kids grow up.

thank you and may God bless you.
