Miraculous Survivor Story
"Scope" by Stanford Medicine
Cycling in San Diego I was hit from behind by a vehicle going over 40mph. It was April 2021. My skull cracked open. I had a Severe traumatic brain injury with a Glasgow Coma Scale of 3. I acquired Hydrocephalus and Hypothyroidism. Several weeks in a coma with a tracheostomy, and doctors told my parents I would not survive. Five months in the hospital; I don't remember four of them. I now have much metal holding several bones together, and a VP Shunt implanted permanently for Hydrocephalus.
The best medicine is belief in miracles. Hearing the stories of others who survive and miraculously heal from a dire prognosis will help caregivers, family members, patients, and medical providers thrive. Only about 5% survive a Glasgow Coma Scale of 3. And who acquires Hydrocephalus in the middle of their life? There is not yet a database for Hydrocephalus.
The ability of the brain to form and reorganize synaptic connections, especially in response to learning or following injury. Most humans are scared to take risks and have no experiences, but that level of uniqueness is where we grow and evolve. Historically living my life in a state of Neuroplasticity means I've lived in ten cities in my adult life, most of them solo. Traveled to 20 countries, solo. Started companies, organized festivals, was into backcountry skiing and mountaineering, renovated and lived on a boat.... Perhaps those habitual tendancies is why I healed so uncommonly well from a Severe TBI.
Help other TBI Survivors Survive and Heal! Aspire to find a Neuro-practitioner who will research what worked so well for me.
I've dedicated myself full-time to bringing my message to communities around the world. Whether as a keynote speaker or a workshop leader, I inspire people to keep working through their challenges.

I'm a speech pathologist. I've met many people who had a TBI and suffered Hydrocephalus. Lindsay is a living breathing miracle! She recovered her functions to an amazing degree! She is remarkably open, intelligent and articulate.
Lindsay is a 'lucky' woman. I was a firefighter paramedic. In my knowledge, a corpse or an inanimate object has a GCS3.
Lindsay! You are an effervescent fountain of joy whose purpose is to cascade joy over all the world around you. I am so grategul you overcame this tragic situation!
