Gabriel Giffords’ long road

Via Balloon Juice this news segment from Houston about a patient at the same medical center where Giffords is currently receiving treatment recovering from multiple strokes and the role of music therapy in his (and others) recovery.

Amazing the things that pretty much all of us take for granted.  I guess it really is hard not to but this is definitely a sobering account of just what normal can mean to someone with a severe injury to the brain.  On a more positive note also amazing to see just how the brain can be made to compensate even after having sustained so much damage.
