    I just watched your video. Brought tears to my eyes. Brian may read this. He was our neighbor until a year ago. Great guy, helping others by running this site. This video warmed my heart. My sister-in-law has been in your place TWICE. She miraculously survived an ascending dissection two years ago after 6 weeks in ICU on a vent and a total of three months in the hospital/rehab. She left thinking she would need a heart transplant. She made a great recovery then almost two years later suffered a descending dissection. Again a complete miracle. Same scanario with organ failure, 16 hour surgery, 5 weeks on vent, just short of three months in hospital. God put the same surgeon and team in her path twice and thru this medical team, saved her life TWICE! Blessings to you in your recovery. We are praying my sister can recover again to live an independent, full life.
