Richard A Gaffney II
Class of 1984
I have had a long hard road up to this point but its starting to turn around a bit. When I left school I went kind of on my own. Life was ruff witch I am paying for now. I had a accident on Jan, 12 of 2004 witch nearly took my life. This happen just out side of Marchall, WI. By the grace of god I am here now. I had taken a job installing satellite dishes and I had been doing the job about two weeks, I was at a new residence that wasn't even finished being built yet. The only other person there was the owner. It was a two story house with an exposed basement. I was up my ladder in the back. He yelled outside, you need any help back there? I did not reply so he thought he better go look. When he got around back, there I lay right next to his LP tank. Luckily he had his cell phone and dialed 911. They sent out med flight and they showed and got me loaded pretty quick. Your PSI in your head is normally 8 or 9 PSI and when they checked mine it was like 49 and 50. They drilled holes in my head and gave me many meds to try to bring the pressure down and nothing worked. They at that point talked with my family and told they the situation and time was everything. My sister Shelia was the only one that had the balls to say anything, everyone else was in shock. She said, do what you have to do. The Dr that would be doing it said, mind you, he will be a veg. if he dose live. To that she replied, do whatever you have to do to save his life. Well, they did and here I am now. I've since got my driver license back and went to MATC to get my GED than on to get my HSED and now in collage at ITT Tech. I know quite a bit about PCs.
