    I am married to my wonderful wife Andrea, and have an 8 year old daughter, named Lyndsay. I am a 36 year old, permanently disabled, quadriplegic, husband, father, and even an uncle. Before my disability I was a police officer/dispatcher, volunteer firefighter (Captain), emergency medical technician, and a CPR instructor.

    I have a brain/spinal cord injury that I suffered while in the ICU of the hospital eight years ago. Basically a doctor messed up in treating me and now I am a quadriplegic. The bastard got away with murder. My diagnosis is known as critical care neuropathy, I suffered a hypothermic event, high fever of 107 which caused brain and spinal cord damage.

    I am now worried I may have TC, left testicle is swollen 5 times normal, hard, and little pain.
