A tug at my heart

The story of Simone

On Friday morning, June the 24th 2005 at 3am, she suffered a tragic accident and accidentally fell 70 feet from the top floor of a shopping centre. Fortunately an ambulance was at the scene at the time and one of the officers was experienced in intensive, critical care. She was in the hospital within 15 minutes of her fall. Had that not happened she would have most certainly died. Symone suffered a serious brain injury. Her brain was severely bruised and swollen and we were told that one small part of her brain had already died. This was allegedly in the right hemisphere of the brain and in a part of the brain that was the least used. (Note: this may now not be true - see Updates).

The doctors operated immediately and removed part of her skull to relieve the massive brain pressure she was experiencing, as well as a large blood clot. Since that time, for the first week following her accident, they regularly drained brain fluid to keep her pressure down. She remained in an induced coma for 2 weeks so that the brain could begin to heal. Miraculously she suffered no other organ damage or broken bones except for a crushed vertebrae. There were no nerves severed in her back.

Symone appeared to be steadily improving in the first week following her injury with her brain pressure levels stabilizing to slightly above normal. She even seemed to respond to external stimuli. However she suffered a setback on the night of July the 2nd when her brain pressure rose dramatically and she developed a high fever. This, combined with other symptoms she was experiencing, caused the doctors to fear that she may have suffered damage to the central part of her brain known as the Hypothalamus. See its functions below...

"hypothalamus
(hi-po-thal-ms) , an important supervisory center in the brain, rich in ganglia, nerve fibers, and synaptic connections. It is composed of several sections called nuclei, each of which controls a specific function. The hypothalamus regulates body temperature, blood pressure, heartbeat, metabolism of fats and carbohydrates, and sugar levels in the blood. Through direct attachment to the pituitary gland, the hypothalamus also meters secretions controlling water balance and milk production in the female. The role of the hypothalamus in awareness of
pleasure and pain has been well established in the laboratory. It is thought to be involved in the expression of emotions, such as fear and rage, and in sexual behaviors. Despite its numerous vital functions, the hypothalamus in humans accounts for only 1⁄300 of total brain weight, and is about the size of an almond. Structurally, it is joined to the thalamus; the two work together to monitor the sleep-wake cycle."

Present Time

Right now there are literally tens of thousands of people from all over the world praying for Symone's recovery. This is partially due to the many friends she has worldwide, her father's business connections with Reverse Speech, and also the notice placed on the Jeff Rense radio show website.

Symone faces a long battle in front her of many months, if not years, to recover from this injury. We will be using traditional methods of healing as well as alternate remedies. She commenced "Sound Therapy" on Monday July the 4th, hypnotic healing inductions have already been used (Click here for more information on hypnosis), Remote healing (Click here), as well as some Reiki treatment (Click here for more information on Reiki). Other treatments will begin over the next few weeks
