Overview

23: I Love You, Too: A College Athlete's Story of Trauma, Recovery, and Awakening by Nick Dennen

On September 27, 1998, Nick Dennen was a normal twenty-year-old college athlete. When he fell thirty-five feet into a creek, he sustained a traumatic brain injury and was in a coma for several weeks. Doctors told his family that death was probably near, and if he did survive, a full recovery would be impossible. Despite those opinions, Nick did relearn to walk and talk again after a two-year recovery that tested his family’s fortitude. The retelling of Nick's brave recovery brings the realization that crises don’t happen to individuals, they happen to everyone who loves that individual. Crises challenge faith. But within a crisis, love brings hope. And through love and hope, one can see that possibilities are everywhere.

Given To Me For An Honest Review 23: I Love You, Too by Nick Dennen isn't a must read it's a HAVE to read. Make sure you have your seatbelt on because you're going on the ride of a real page turner. Make sure you have some tissue by your side, you just may  need some. Once you open the book, it will grab you and hold you down tightly and you'll watch those pages turn and  turn and turn some more until the last page. You may just re-read it over and over again. It's just that good! This is the  true story of Nick Dennen. He was a college athlete and 20 years old when it happened. After sustaining a traumatic  brain injury and he was in a coma for six weeks. His family was told there was really no hope of any full recovery. He  sure did surprise everyone. The love of his family brought him through. On page 195 one thing stood out to me and it made a great impression on me. It is "Being able to truly love others is, without a doubt, the most fundamental quality  one should ever expect to acquire after such aan experience." The reason this stood out to me is because my daughter has to most severe form of lupus. We were told that she had only 6 months to liive, there was not more to do.  But the would try an experimental drug. So, she became a guinea pig for it. We decided why not, she might be able to  help someone else because of it, nothing else could help her. Well, she arrived for her 6 month check up and the  doctor was stunned, he said, "You're supposed to be dead." My daughter said, "I guess not, I'm here for my appointment." Talk about excitment for them at Stanford. That was about 8 years ago. Also included in this book, near  the end the reader will find Nick's 23 Rules for Life. I love them and read them over often. I gave this book 5 stars but  know that is not enough for this book. It truly deserves so many more. This would make a great addition to anyone's  library and would make a great gift. I highly recommend thie book to everyone and I also look forward to more from  Nick Dennen.
