But I think he has gotten some feeling back in his legs; I don't know to what extent though. He is still able to practice and do some types of surgery (I think)--just not some of the kinds he did before. When I heard about what happened, I was really sad for him and especially sad for all those people he wouldn't be able to help. I think he's one of those special people that was meant to be a doctor, that that is his calling in this life....to give others back what they thought they'd never have again.
Oh Bonnie, that's just awful. That's the kind of thing that makes me wonder about God's plan, it just seems so unfair and, like you said, deprives so many people of his exceptional talent to heal. I guess that's why we have to rely on faith but it's not easy sometimes...I hope he eventually can get all feeling back, that's a real positive sign.
As for the hoarder show, I too think they have deep psychological problems - but did you catch the show that was actually about an unemployed psychotherapist and her young daughter?!? You'd think she would know enough to get out of that vicious cycle, eh? These people all seem to have extreme OCD as well.
