"A stunning guide for those living with brain injury, and those who work with them."
Though it happens millions of times a year, it takes but a moment or two.
Suddenly, a stroke or traumatic brain injury has come our way. We no longer think the same, feel the same, or understand life as we did just a few moments earlier. We are left to make sense of the world, to unravel what happened and slowly, ever so slowly, discover where it leads.
“What’s it like?” This story addresses the physical, emotional, and spiritual side of that simple question. Larry Pray shares his story, and Dr. Gumm explains how the brain works, and what happens when it is injured. This book is written for those who have experienced brain injury, either from a stroke or a TBI. It is also written for their friends, family, religious communities, and physicians as they help piece life together again.
It is always tempting to count the losses that come with brain injury. We no longer speak, move, perceive or understand God as we once did. But alongside the losses there is another story. It is a creation story that carries us forward in ways we could have never expected or even imagined.
10% of whatever is earned from the sale of Thresholds is given to St. Vincent’s Healthcare Foundation for use in the Headway program. Larry explains why.
As it does, we too can say, “Surely God is in this place, and I did not know it.”
Praise for Thresholds
