Since August of 2011, and the onset of his third brain bleed, Mr. Bloom once again found himself facing the long and difficult road to recovery.
But his stalwart determination would once again rise up to confront—and surmount—the many barriers that lay ahead.
As his muscles weakened, other symptoms quickly set in—including severe nerve damage that would eventually paralyze the entire right side of his body and cause his speech to slur.
But, the emotional strain was often even more debilitating than the physical impediments.
Soon, anger, depression, and suicidal thoughts crept into his otherwise-positive attitude—becoming an increasingly significant part of his daily battle.
Join Andrew on his detailed journey of hope. Experience his thoughts, his actions, and his reactions to a multitude of life’s most demanding circumstances…
…and along the way, discover his highly effective—and contagious—zeal for life, and an optimistic attitude capable of overcoming any obstacle.
“Not content with merely telling a story about his recovery, Mr. Bloom, instead, transports readers into an entirely different world—Andrew’
