IAmA blind man who suffered a gunshot wound to the head, dictating this to my son. AMA!
My short bio: I am 47 years old. On Thanksgiving of 1991, my then-girlfriend shot me in the head. She was never charged for it and the police didn't do a thorough investigation. I was in brain surgery for 15 hours, a coma for nearly 5 months, and wheelchair-bound for 2 years. I was told I would never have children. Today, my teenage son told me about AMA. It's a miracle that I'm not an infertile vegetable. They had to amputate 5 of my toes for me to walk properly after the incident, and the bullet gave me a frontal lobotomy, severed my optic nerve, and required me to get a portion of my prefrontal cortex removed, but I'm a happily married father nonetheless. Ask me anything! My son will read me the questions and I'll dictate my answer to him.
Edit: I met my wife in 1995, walking in the French Quarter. I bumped into a pole and yelled a few expletives, when she came up to me with her friend and helped me. I got her number but I lost it. About six months later, I managed to bump into her AGAIN. I started dating her, and one thing led to another. Our son came a couple years later.
Edit 2: Dad's stepped out for a bit, he'll be back soon. Keep the questions coming, and he'll answer them all when he comes back.
Edit 3: Dad came back for a bit, but he's going to lay down for a while. Keep commenting, even if it's an inactive discussion, he wants to answer as many as he can.
Edit 4: Dad's in for the night. He'll be up in the morning to answer all of your questions. Don't worry about it.
