Adam's Fall: Traumatic Brain Injury The First 365 Days
On a warm summer’s evening, while riding his bicycle with his girlfriend down a gentle slope something inexplicable happened. Suddenly, Adam flew over his handle bars, bounced on the street, and crushed the back of his head. TBI—traumatic brain injury. In that moment, as told by his father, Robert V. Bullough, Jr., Adam’s life and the life of his family changed forever. Like tens of thousands of other young people who probably rode their bikes that day, Adam was not wearing a helmet. “Adam’s Fall” tells a very personal story of a young man’s struggle to survive first while in prolonged coma and then to heal and to recover himself. It is a story of the heroic efforts of doctors, nurses and therapists who saved his life and of those who have since supported his healing. But mostly, it is a story of a family facing every parent’s worst nightmare, a story of faith and of hope that continues to unfold in often surprising ways.
