Patients' stories

Watch CBS Videos Online

[The video clip is 11'39" long, and there is an annoying 30" commercial at the beginning, sorry for that]

In contrast to the advance of medicine, I found that Pat's, the mother's, statment at the end of the video about her son's situation is moving.

Pat: "I am not gonna get the old George back. I am not that naive, even that much in denial to think that I am gonna get 100% of who George was at one time. But hopefully it will be a George that will be able to live on his own and have a productive life.

Anderson: "That's what you want?"

Pat: "Yes."

Anderson: "And you think that is very possible?"

Pat: "It's possible."
