Miracle of Medicine and Will…

Miriam Silton Bat Mitzvah (18)

A few weeks back, we got the terrible news that the NFO’s cousin had been shot in the face while serving his country in Afghanistan.

Shortly after that, we visited him at Bethesda Naval Center where, to put it mildly, the outlook wasn’t great.

He had a trach tube, his face was swollen and the prognosis was unclear.

Well, 6 weeks later, I saw him at his cousin’s Bat Mitzvah and almost fell over, while trying to hold back the tears.

His jaw, which had been wired shut, wasn’t 100% functional, but he was able to talk, communicate, and even dance out on the floor.

Just inspiring. Very inspiring.
