When Cavin Bounce fell two stories he spent 12 days in a coma and only had 10% chance of recovery. This is his story…

 

I'm Cavin.

3 years ago, I was starting a business and living in NYC.

On May, 8th of 2011, I fell 2 stories and landed in a coma with a 10% chance of recovery.

Mom in ICU.

I was diagnosed with a Diffuse Axonal, Traumatic Brain Injury.

I woke up after a 12-day coma, with no recollection of what happened and severe brain fog.

Where am I?

I couldn't walk, talk, or eat for 4 straight months.

It was hell.

I lost significant control over much of my functioning and felt trapped for most of the recovery.

I began to process and accept what happened to me, and started blogging about my experience.

I was ready to be myself again, to help educate others, and get back to life.

It took a tremendous amount of time to re-gain certain abilities.

After 4 months, I could eat again.

I pushed myself, and I began to re-learn to walk.

It was time to celebrate!

As soon as I could speak again, I tried to sing. As soon as I could use my left arm again, I began to play.

Now, I work to educate about brain health and spread awareness about Traumatic Brain Injury.

I even got to play a show at SXSW.

I'm currently working on a book called "Lights, Coma, Action" to tell my story of recovery and to help others understand TBI.

Thanks for checking out my story!

Yep, he's lucky but I wonder how he fell two stories - was it a legitimate accident or was he one of these YOLO assholes and fucked up?

It doesn't matter. You're only going to believe whatever you want. And that's what makes you a really sad person.

Even if he jumped, he is a role model now. And I would follow him to the end of the world to find you in your cave and give you a lollipop (and a smack in the head).

You impress me as the type of person that would follow a stray dog just to find a nice fence to piss on.
