Having spent 63 days in the hospital with 34 on the ventilator changed my musical life forever. I am now finally back to performing although I continue to do therapy twice a week. One quote that has really inspired me was on my doctor’s wall in rehab when I was in St Francis for a couple of weeks. “What doesn’t challenge you, doesn’t change you.
