I saw Sgt. Marracco's interview when he was released from the hospital. What struck me was his exceptional demeanor and outlook in the face of such overwhelming trauma. What a tribute not only to human spirit, but human generosity and innovation. Gratitude and praise go out to all his fellow warriors, medical professionals and the donor who have made it possible for Sgr. Marracco to - one day - hug his mother again.


I second all of the above! You just got to love those Docs that dare to dream those impossible dreams and the patients that are willing to go the distance with them. Prayers out for all!


My oh my do I have it easy. I'll never complain about
my circumstances ever again. The medical miracles abound
in the great USA. The light of the planet.


I've been watching him, I wish him nothing but the best :D he is going to meet Blake Shelton the country star :D


This is so awesome.

Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this site. It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's hard to get that "perfect balance" between usability and visual appeal. I must say you've done a very good job with this. Also, the blog loads very fast for me on Chrome. Outstanding Blog!
