Good news, the bleed is healing. I put this on Facebook which any of you can join our page. Just look up Benjamin and Paula Crain.
To my friends and family, it looks like I am going to avoid brain surgery from my subdural hematoma from a fall down the mountain. I remember getting pulled over backwards while attempting a steep hill only to find myself inverted in a pile of larger rocks and strapped to my back pack. I have no idea how long I was unconscious but I know getting up with a broken wrist and elbow was difficult, I probably fell about 45 feet and my back pack probably saved my life. I am posting two different CT's to show if the brain bleed was progressing or healing, the good news is it is healing. The way to look at a CT is as if you are looking from the feet up, so the space you see on the left of the skull is the blood on the right side of my brain, then you can see how my brain was compressed on the left side. I could not figure out the headaches, short term memory loss, and vision problems but did not want to let them be known, it didn't help getting bitten by a Rattlesnake the next morning. But I am who I am and I will push to the limit, maybe a fault or maybe a strength, but my purpose here is not complete, that is for sure. The pictures are from July 22nd and August 22nd for comparison. And, let me add in a Rattlesnake bite a week after being bitten, and refusing anti-venom. Bring out the millennials, I would love to have one day with them, or show them the millions of people their age being slaughtered around the world. These children need to learn how to step up, and they are children. Like my wife I am stubborn headed, but when something needs to be done or people are relying on you, you make the extra push.
