The Brodeur family
As of now, to my knowledge he is the only Iraq war veteran with TBI in a private hospital. The care he is getting at Spaulding is outstanding and his injury was worse than previously thought. The swelling in his brain has gone down dramatically but the injury left him unable to walk or talk at present time. He still has a fixator on his left arm from the shrapnel that shattered his arm. He is looking at surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital in the near future to remove it and then back to Bethesda Naval to reattach his cranium . It will be a long road to recovery and everything is uncertain with brain injuries. We live life one day at a time..
thank you for the support.
