    I would very much appreciate any information anyone can
    supply on this. If a person is in a car accident with damage
    to the back of their neck and 5-6 days later has four
    strokes (two of them being in the brain stem itself)
    possibly (probably?) due to torn veins and damaged arteries
    in the back of the head causing a slow bleed into the brain
    and / or brain stem - are there any known options other than
    being sent home to die. Thank you!!! Mike

    Sounds sorta like a DAI, too, doesn't it.

    Personally, i'd rather have a brainstem injury and die
    [quickly], than have frontal (or temporal) lobe damage
    and survive.

    Sadly, if the brain was healable (as with the rest of the
    body's cells), science could do a lot more.

    I pray for a day when all people must wear helmets while
    driving automobiles.
