Looking to meet you all!

Hi, I'm Jane N. I've been paralyzed for approximately 7 1/2 years during an aneurysm surgery where I lost a lot of blood and therefore my spinal cord was starved of blood. Haven't met anyone yet with the same type of injury but looking forward to it. Looking forward to meeting as many of you I can and learning your story.

    Welcome! Thanks for introducing  yourself. I have not heard of that injury before and I've heard many! 
    Thanks for sharing. What items above are you having trouble with? Do you mean navigating the website in general?

    Hello, @Jane_2135111, I hope you have found a home here. There are many individuals in the community with the same or similar issue. Although rare, paralysis as a surgical consequence does happen. People don't really consider it until it is a reality. This is a great place of hope. I think you will find the group quite wonderful. There are a terrific amount of resources so do not hesitate to take advantage of them. Nurse Linda

    I'm online in this community every Wednesday from 8-9 PM ET to answer your SCI and paralysis related questions.
