James Hilaire, Sept. 24: “A day I would not make it through”

The Charger Bulletin

Today is September 24, 2009, a day that doctors said I would not make through one year ago. Today I thank God and everyone else for their support throughout my injury. I am working hard throughout my recovery, and I know that one day I will be 100 percent recovered. Doctors have said I can only get to 90 percent, but I will push for 100. Throughout my injury I have been to a lot of places, like the White House, and I have received a lot of awards because of how positive I have been since the incident. Once again thank you for all of the support and letters I received while hospitalized. Thank you for keeping track of my injury and progress through the websites and articles which have been published. Thank You!!!!
