Pray for Captain Tred Barta....

Postby SJohnson » Wed May 20, 2009 9:48 am

I got an e-mail eariler this morning with this information...

[quote]On his way to Alaska to tape his TV show, Tred Barta suffered a rare occurrence called a spinal stroke affecting his T2-T10 vertebrae. Since there are only 12 of these Thoracic bones, that’s a very large area. He is currently paralyzed from just below the chest down. Prognosis is way up in the air at the moment. Some medicos predict permanent paralysis while others have given him up to a 60-percent chance of at least partial recovery. His message to everyone is… “Don’t take a single second of your life for granted.â€

A stroke is hard to recover from, especially one in the spine. My father had a stroke 11 years ago and never fully recovered.

Last night while cruzing the internet looking for something for my recurve I came across an interview done by stickbow.com with Treb Barta.

Its a recent interview with Tred and he explains what happen to him and hows this has changed him as a person. Pretty good. Worth checking out and listening too.
