The Sharp Experience Documentary Video: Episode 12
Donnell, Brandon's Dad: It was like the most gut-wrenching things I'd ever seen.
Brandon: And I'd feel my body lift up off the bed and move, you know, a couple feet to the left and then you fall back on the bed.
OR Doctor: Twenty-five watts, please.
Brandon: I'm getting shocked by this thing. I’m having this crash course in death.
Lisa, Brandon's Mom: I never know when it's going to be our last day with him.
Colleen Murphy, RN: Every human being has a story. And we intersect with that story at some of the most dramatic times in people's lives.
Mom: Oh, my gosh. (Lots of voices intermixed)
Jennifer, RN: Babies, babies, babies, always babies. (laughs)
Dad: I can't get the smile off my face. I got two baby girls. That's crazy!
Mom: She's beautiful. She's perfect. She's a blessing.
Dr. Larry Cousins, OB/GYN: This baby is going to be in the best possible hands.
Dr. Frank Kennedy, Surgeon: Massive scalp avulsion.
Kelly, RN: Revealing what was underneath, which is essentially skull.
Ashley, RN: He can't feel the left side of his body. And no movement in the left lower extremity.
Dr. Paul Corey, Anesthesiologist: Part one of a long journey.
John, Kevin's Dad: This whole story, if it was fiction, you would say it was totally impossible.
Announcer: These are stories of real people. These are stories of The Sharp Experience.
911: 911 Emergency, what are you reporting?
Female Voice: I just witnessed a huge accident.
Male Voice: Severe rollover.
Male Voice: You’ve got two patients. The father’s pinned in the vehicle.
Male Voice: The driver doesn’t look like they’re moving, and there’s a kid on the ground.
Dr. Frank Kennedy, Surgeon: ...motor vehicle accident, had a, has a massive scalp avulsion.
Ashley, RN: There was also a child involved.
Male Paramedic: What’s your name?
Ashley, RN: He says that he can’t feel the left side of his body and no movement in the left lower extremity.
Female Paramedic: Kevin, the driver of the truck. Unknown why they rolled over.
Trauma RN: One, two, three....
Trauma RN: Kevin, you have a son Luke?
Kevin: He’s my man.
Trauma RN: He is your man. And Children’s Hospital just called; they said he’s doing great.
Kelly, Kevin's Wife: I got a phone call. And she said, "I just want to tell you first that your son is OK, but he’s here with us, he’s been admitted today." And of course I started crying. And, um....
Officer Mitchel Sanchez, California Highway Patrol: The vehicle went across the other lane of traffic and up onto the center median, the raised center median, traveled on the center median.
John: That threw the truck in the air. And then once, as it came back to the freeway it started rolling.
Luke, Kevin's Son: (Imitates tire failure sound) And then the truck just flipped.
911: OK, we’re on the way.
Kristine, Good Samaritan: My boyfriend parked and I started sprinting towards the accident. Cars scattered everywhere. Dust flying around. Saw Kevin hanging out the door. His head was gashed open. So I took off my shirt and wrapped it around his head and applied pressure.
Just the words he kept repeating were, "Get me out, get me out, get me out." And then when he asked if he was going to die, it broke my heart.
Dr. Joseph Bellezzo, ER Physician: He completely degloved the top of his scalp.
Kelly, RN: It’s just a huge layer that’s ripped back, revealing what was underneath, which is essentially skull.
Dr. Kennedy: If you have a massive injury to the scalp then there’s a chance of massive bleeding.
Keep track of how much bleeding is going on.
Ashley, RN: Blood pressure, 144 over 95.
Dr. Bellezzo: So move your left hand, will you? Squeeze my fingers, will you? On your left hand.
Kevin: I’m trying, man.
Dr. Bellezzo: I got nothing.
Ashley: You kind of always hope that there’s not some injury to the spinal cord that’s causing that.
Dr. Bellezzo: Sir, can you hear me? Try to wiggle your toes.
Dr. Kennedy: He does not move his left side.
Ashley: They’re consulting neurosurgery about the spine.
Dr. Bellezzo: X-ray, left humerus.
Dr. Kennedy: Distal third transverse humerus fracture.
Male Voice: CT chest, head and C-spine.
Annette, RN: CAT scan is definitely gonna be our friend in this diagnosis. It’s gonna let us know if there’s any bleeding in his brain, it’s gonna let us know if there’s any injuries in his spinal cord.
Female Voice: We gotta get a good picture of your spine.
Male Voice: We want to make sure that your neck is not broken.
Ashley: Kelly? And you’re his wife? OK. We’re getting CAT scans right now, he’s awake, talking to us.
Male Voice: You did a great job, we’re all done, ready to go, OK?
Ashley: I spoke with Kelly, I’m gonna call her so you can talk to her, OK?
Dr. Kennedy: He didn’t have a severe injury to the brain, but he did have a fracture in his neck and it showed that he had some injury to the spinal cord.
Ashley: She’s on the phone with you right now, hon.
Ashley: Kelly said that she loves you, she’ll be there as soon as she can.
Dr. Paul Corey, Anesthesiologist: How you doing, Kev?
Kevin: Uhhh, I’ve been better.
Dr. Corey: OK. What’s the most bothersome thing for you?
Kevin: It’s the back of my head.
Dr. Corey: Uh-huh. What we’re gonna do is take you back to the operating room. I’m gonna continue talking with you and we’re gonna scoot you safely off to sleep and get all this fixed up for you. Get you back to doing what you normally do in a nice healthy way, all right?
He’s got a broken neck. What we have to do is fix the laceration here so it stops the extensive blood loss without disturbing his neck.
Ashley: If he’s moved wrong or anything like that, it could damage the cord more.
Dr. Corey: It’s not a good situation to have decreased blood flow. We’re gonna adjust the blood flow so his organs get properly profused. And when you do that, the patients recover a lot faster. Our hospital is one of the few centers in the United States that’s doing this.
Male Voice: Looking better.
Dr. Corey: Part one of a long journey.
Kelly: The head injury, it was really hard to see. It was, I knew that it was very large, but it was very difficult. (cries) Um....
Dr. Harbinder Chadha, Orthopedic Surgeon: He broke his humerus, right about here. And the humerus has a nerve that runs right across where that fracture was. It’s intact right now.
If it stops working he’ll be only able to grab like that. Our goal is to get the bone realigned.
The bone lines up very nicely. Two months to heal the bone (under) and another two months to....
Dr. Kennedy: He still has significant deficit in terms of his ability to move his leg and foot.
Dr. Ramin Bagheri, Neurosurgeon: What we’re planning to do is actually take out the C-6 vertebra and by decompressing it we’re gonna give him the best chance we can to have a full recovery. So we’re just resecting the vertebra here.
When we have to resect an entire vertebra, obviously we’re working right around the spinal cord and sensitive nerves, so it is a complex operation. We’ve taken the entire vertebra out. And now we’re gonna reconstruct this with this titanium spacer. We’re gonna gradually expand this cage a little bit. So, we’re gonna take a picture here and make sure we like the alignment.
The top is good. Looks fantastic.
Kelly: I was just so happy that it just wasn’t their time to go.
Melissa Ducey, Physical Therapy Assistant: Push, push, push, push, push. That’s it. Good. How are you feeling right now?
Kevin: I feel so successful that I, I can barely stand it.
Melissa: (laughs) On three, we’re going to stand. OK?
Melissa: One, two and three.
Nurse: Nice. Nice.
John, Kevin's Father: Are you smiling?
Nurse: He’s smiling.
Melissa: When you see patients progress, it just makes my job just that much more, like, worthwhile.
I want us to try to take a couple steps.
Kevin: Uhh, I can’t move it.
Nurse: Yeah, you can.
John: Keep going, keep going.
Kevin: Ahh, ahhh.
Melissa: Oooh! Lean to me. Yeah, lean into that walker, there we go! And then take a step with the right. Good. OK. OK. There, good, good job.
And just, you know, hearing him talk about his kids … wanting to get back home with his wife and his four kids. It’s just, it’s a pretty neat experience.
Kevin: I feel like I went through like a prizefight or something. There’s not many parts of my body that don’t hurt.
John: I know it’s hard. That’s part of the baby step process. One step at a time.
Melissa: You could just see it in his dad’s eyes. Even this morning, OK, what are you guys going to do? Do you think he’s going to walk?
John: When he puts his mind to something and really decides that’s what he wants to do, you’d best get out of his way, or help him.
There she is!
Kevin: Love you, baby.
Kelly: He’s an amazing father. He’s overly proud. He’s always bragging about his boys.
Kevin: Those four infectious boys. There’s something about them.
John: Put your hand in his. Let’s see if he can squeeze your hand. Kev, come on, yeah ... I can see the fingers moving.
Kelly: It’s hard.
Kevin: Yeah, it’s a slow process.
Kelly: And I’m just amazed at how much you’re doing.
Kevin: Well, I haven’t exactly run the halls yet.
(Crowd cheering, car horn)
Crowd: Welcome home, Kevin!
Kevin: I missed you. Love you, bud.
Luke: Thank you.
Kevin: Glad to be home.
Wow, thank you guys so much.
Kevin: Luke and I have a bond that’ll never be broken.
Lisa, David's Wife: He's a marathon swimmer. He's a Superman kind of guy.
David: I've swum the English Channel. I've swum around the island of Manhattan and I've swum the Catalina Channel. The three of those events are the Triple Crown of open water swimming. There's only been 50 or 60 people that have managed to do all three of those. And that's pretty cool.
Lisa: Well, we like to ride trails on our quads and motorcycles.
His tire sunk into a really soft spot and the whole bike flipped and he went over the handlebars.
Dr. Gregory Alberton, Orthopedic Surgeon: And he sustained a pretty severe fracture of his left clavicle.
Lisa: It really, he really looked hurt.
Dr. Alberton: You can see here there's three large fragments. This fragment in the middle is actually called the butterfly fragment, we call that, because it's been completely separated from both ends of the bone.
David: He immediately said, "Well, this is as bad as they get." This shoulder is like two inches shorter than this shoulder because of the way the break happened.
Lisa: We need your shoulders to work for swimming. He doesn't kick his way through the water, he pulls his way with his shoulders.
David: If you damage your shoulders, you're not a long-distance swimmer. Swimming is a real big part of my life. When I'm going to sleep at night I'm swimming in the ocean. And I hope I get to do it, because I've been worrying that, "Oh my God, I might not get better."
Lisa: And that's not OK.
Nurse: Go ahead and put it down. Thank you.
Dr. Alberton: What causes most of the pain is the bone fragments moving. We'll use a metal plate and screws to get the pieces back where they belong.
Nurse: They're ready for you.
Dr. Alberton: They will also restore the length to his clavicle, which will help regain the normal shoulder biomechanics, which will be important to his long-distance swimming.
Nurse: We're ready to proceed, Doc.
Dr. Alberton: Thank you, the left side is correct.
As an orthopedic surgeon, we're in a very happy branch of medicine because we can restore function that is lost, bringing back quality of life.
I'm trying to find the ends of the different fracture fragments, so we can piece it back together. And then we'll place some small screws and then the plate. And it looks like this may come together pretty nicely here.
We're going to check it under X-ray. That actually looks almost like one piece now.
We were able to restore the length of the clavicle and restore the alignment of the fragments.
Jessica Johnson, Music Therapist: And get you to close your eyes.
There's something about music therapy, it's not a performance. It's a music experience that you facilitate.
And whenever you're ready you can open your eyes.
Jessica: You're with the patient and you have this connection with them.
David: I'm not normally a believer. (laughs) I'm a very, I'm an engineer, you know? That fluff and stuff doesn't really get — do it for me. But, oh my God, that was really relaxing and spectacular.
Dr. Alberton: So yeah, I think doing some in the pool with the kickboard would be great.
David: He was very intent, "Well, we have to get you back to swimming." And I appreciate that he shared that concern, cuz that's the way I feel. I mean, I gotta get back.
I just can't wait. I miss it.
Kimberly Ott Setzler, Physical Therapist: So, show me what you got.
David: This way?
Dr. Alberton: Our goal is to first restore the full motion of the shoulder and then the strength and then the endurance as well.
Kimberly: Don't let me move your arm.
You know, a lot of times you're talking to them on an emotional level, what's going on in their lives, their children, their parents. We're not just healing the body, we're helping with the soul and the mind as well. It's great.
So we're just trying to prolong the life of your sport, your passion.
My hope for David is that he is inspired to keep doing what he loves to do, for as long as he can do it.
David: I'm out there swimming and I'm not even thinking about my shoulder now. The next things that I'd like to do are the Strait of Gibraltar where you swim from Spain to Morocco. That sounds pretty romantic.
Friend: Good job! You're back, man.
David: For an old man, I did OK.
Female Friend: Well done, sir. Well done.
Lisa, Jamul Feed Store Employee: It was a very, very hot day. You know, I just thought it was heat stroke. I thought, "You know what Lisa, you need to hurry up and cool this man off."
911: Copy that. Forty-four-year-old male. Chest pain, moving some hay, got progressively worse.
Lisa: I was scared for his life.
Whitney Ireland, Paramedic: Soon as we got him on the monitor, we knew.
Valery Graham, Paramedic: Right here is the injury to the heart.
Dr. Nassir Azimi, Interventional Cardiologist: His EKG showed up on my phone. And so we can see simultaneously what's going on electrocardiographically.
Every second counts with a heart attack. Door to balloon time. Right? The minute the patient hits the door to the minute that the balloon is inflated, to try to keep that artery open.
Rick Bushore, RN, Cardiac Catherization Lab: The less time we take, the less damage there is to that heart muscle.
Valery: This device is a game changer, some patients only have minutes to live if they don't get treated.
Rick: He's in ventricular tachycardia right now, which means that his heart is beating so fast that it doesn't effectively pump. So we went from a pressure of a 140 systolic down to probably 50 or 60. At about that level there's really not enough blood pressure to support profusion to the brain. And if it goes on long enough, you'll see brain damage.
Nurse: I have a 275 by 30.
Male Voice: X-ray!
Dr. Azimi: The right artery had a clot and the circumflex marginal artery also had a clot in it.
Male Voice: Balloon's going in.
Rick: He'll insert a balloon in the blockage to open it up (Male Voice: Going up.) and then we'll have what we call reprofusion.
Male Voice: That's door to balloon.
Dr. Azimi: We sucked out the clot, we put a balloon, stents.
John, you're doing OK,y buddy, your artery's already open.
Male Voice: Doing better, John? Pain starting to go away now?
Rick: The national standard for door to balloon time is 60 minutes. In John's case, we were able to do this in 21 minutes.
Dr. Azimi: So you clotted both, both major arteries. That's unusual. That's why you were having so much pain.
Male Voice: (unintelligible) Seal's in.
Dr. Azimi: We were able to open them both. You're a lucky guy.
Rick: This part of the vessel here was completely missing. This is what it's supposed to look like. It's beautiful. It's a beautiful thing.
John: I was afraid, I was afraid that this was my last day.
Donna Yap, Ecocardiographer: This is gonna show the doctor if you have any damage to the heart. So what happened?
John: I was lifting hay bales.
Right now I live on a ranch. The animals are so cool. It's very therapeutic, you know, you know I've really been getting into that. So, and they love me, too, I can tell. Because I have a long parade of them everywhere I go, they follow me like, you know, I feel like Noah. (laughs)
Dr. Azimi: Here's a guy 44-years-old, had a two-vessel heart attack, leaving with no damage to his heart, walking out two days later.
Any chest pains?
John: No, none.
Dr. Azimi: If I had a light switch, I'd turn it off, and then just remind you what could have happened. Because we don't always get that light switch turned back on, right?
John: Right, right.
I'm already gonna work on my diet. And I'm gonna work on my exercise, get these muscles going again. (laughs)
Lisa: I'm just glad that he has a second chance in life.
John: Hey, Danny. How you doing this morning, huh? There you go Adam, there you go. They missed me, they missed me. (laughs)
It was good to, it was good to see them again. I'm, I'm grateful for my life. It's good to be alive.
Rick: I know these people. These people are my neighbors. These are my friends. These are my family. These are the people in my community.
Seeing the effect of what you do on your neighbors makes it all worth it.
John: Come on guys, time to eat. It's OK, Jack. (laughs)
Rachel Gasior, RN: This little baby was delivered about an hour ago. Nice and healthy, wonderful vital signs.
Nurse: Chin to your chest, curl up around your baby, bear down for 10 seconds, whoooo.
Deborah Malone, RN, Labor and Delivery: Nobody anticipates having any problems when they have a baby, but it’s something that is real, it can happen.
Dr. Anmar Mansour, OBGYN: Baby A is head down, baby B is butt down and head is up. The safest way to deliver is by doing a Cesarean section.
Mom #1: I'm scared.
Grandma: Don't be nervous. Everything is going to be fine.
Mom #1: You're gonna to be a grandma.
Dad #1: Man, this is crazy.
Female Voice: Happy birthday!
Female Voice: Listen to her. It's your baby.
Dad #1: I just can't get the smile off my face. You know, I got two baby girls, that's crazy.
Jennifer Ray, RN, NICU: Penelope was born at 25 weeks gestation. She was 1 pound 6 ounces.
Penelope's Mom: This is our miracle baby. Everybody around here calls her feisty. And I'm like, yes you know, good. She's gonna pull through and she's gonna make it.
Penelope's Dad: Penelope's been given a fighting chance to, to be able to do something great.
I'm proud of you. Just keep fighting, OK?
Jennifer: She'll probably be on the breathing tube for another week, and then she'll learn to breathe on her own, and from there it gets better and better.
Penelope's Mom: She's beautiful. She's perfect. She's a blessing. I just, ummm, I wish I could take her spot.
NICU Nurse: How you doing? You doing OK? It's a little scary.
Dad #2: Yeah it is.
Kathleen McKee, RN, NICU: Mom was in labor and the baby's heart rate had a massive deceleration, meaning the baby's heart rate dropped for a prolonged period of time. Based on his initial appearance, the doctors decided to initiate hypothermia treatment in order to protect his brain from any trauma that may have occurred from his abrupt delivery.
NICU Nurse: We cool the body down and we find that that helps with long-term outcomes for the brain.
Dad #2: OK.
Kathleen: It's new technology that can prevent a lifetime of disability.
Deborah: A healthy baby and a healthy mom in the end, that's our goal. And that's what we do best.
Mom #3: We're doing skin to skin right now, I don't want to ever let her go.
Mom #4: We went with Vanessa and Summer's her middle name. So Vanessa Summer June.
Mom #5: I just know how much you love him, and love me, and it's just really, a sacred special experience.
Dad #6: I've been the man she's blamed for this whole ordeal for the last nine months, so I think she's gonna be thanking me here in a little bit.
Mom #6: Yeah, her first name will be Taylor.
Nurse: Oh, that's cute.
Mom #6: Yeah, we're like 90 percent positive about that.
Nurse: Squeeze, breathe, good job.
Three, four, five, six.
Nurse: Go, go, go, go.
Nurse: Seven, eight, nine, ten. Here comes Taylor.
Mom #6: Oh my gosh!
Nurse: There you go. Good job.
Brandon: There is a spot on Encinitas Beach that has these stairs. If I go down to the bottom, I can't walk back up those stairs.
I have a bionic, you know, thing controlling my heart. I guess it's more credible or trustable than my own heart.
I started to feel my pulse. Instead of like dnn … dnn … dnn … it's like dnn … dndndndndn….
Lisa, Brandon's Mom: And he said, "I feel like my heart's skipping a beat and then my body's having to, like, make up for it." And he could feel that happening in his chest.
Brandon: And I opened the door, you know, with my last breath, you know, "Mom, Dad, something's wrong."
Donnell, Brandon's Dad: He says, "Dad, it's coming, it's coming, it's coming." It revs (imitates revving sound), you can hear it revving.
Lisa: I can hear Brandon moaning in the background.
Donnell: When it hits him, you, not only do you see it, you hear it. It goes like chh-chnnnn!
Lisa: I knew we were in trouble.
Donnell: He said, "It's coming again! It's coming again!"
Brandon: Boom! And, and I feel my body lift up off the bed and move, you know, a couple feet to the left and then you fall back on the bed.
Donnell: It was like one of the most gut-wrenching things I'd ever seen. Because I … (cries) I was five seconds from getting dressed to go to work.
Brandon: I'm getting shocked by this thing. I'm having this crash course in death.
Lisa: They've made it very clear to us that this device has saved his life five times now.
Dr. Robert Gillespie, Cardiologist: Brandon at the age of eight was diagnosed with a condition called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
Brandon: Which pretty much means no football. But ... (laughs) that's all it meant to me at that, at that time.
Dr. Gillespie: Let's take a listen.
His condition has led to an abnormal heart rhythm called atrial fibrillation.
Dr. Charles Athill, Cardiac Electrophysiologist: Unfortunately for Brandon, this has caused him to receive shocks from his defibrillator which was put in to treat life-threatening arrhythmias from the bottom part of his heart.
Brandon: During this whole thing I've thought about dying every day, you know.
Lisa: This isn't something as a parent that you should have to think about with your 20-year-old. I never know when it's going to be our last day with him.
Dr. Athill: Brandon is about to undergo a procedure called catheter ablation where we burn the electric tissue that’s causing to have atrial fibrillation. This may be one in a series of procedures that he undergoes over the next three months.
Lisa: All right, I love you, buddy.
I just want him to be a normal kid. Go out with your friends, go to the movies, just do normal things. And I feel like a lot of that's been robbed from him.
Brandon: When's the next time I'm gonna go into a-fib? When's the next time it's gonna shock me?
Male Voice: Good luck to you, buddy.
Brandon: Thank you.
Am I going to survive through tonight? What happens if it has to keep shocking me over and over and over again?
Dr. Gillespie: Our heart is governed by electrical current.
Dr. Athill: We're able to go into the heart in a minimally invasive way and zap these abnormal electrical connections.
Twenty-five watts, please.
Previous to this type of procedure, the patient would have to go for open heart surgery. We're able to now do it just by the introduction of a catheter into the groin.
Male Voice: (unintelligible)
Female Voice: Coming back on 30 watts.
Dana Gugino, Nurse Practitioner, Cardiac Catherization Lab: The red dots represent that that tissue is burnt, it's ablated, it should be dead. And the goal is to connect all of those red dots in a circle around the veins. Any sort of firing or electrical activity that happens inside the pulmonary veins will not conduct back into the left atrium.
Dr. Athill: Because this is not open heart surgery, Brandon will be able to leave the hospital tomorrow and his recovery time will be significantly less.
Lisa: It's honestly been the hardest year of our life. I can't imagine my life without him. And that's what's been hard, is I have to think about that. (cries)
Brandon: I see that pain in her, so I try my hardest to, like, if I can get a breath, make a joke; if I can breathe I'm gonna make a joke about it.
Jessica Rozok, RN: Sound like a plan?
Brandon: I think you guys mixed up the modeling class with the nursing class.
Jessica: When you get a patient like Brandon that is so sweet and that, you know is going through something so difficult, it's great that everything has gone so well, especially after the year he's had, it really does make me love what I do.
Your blood pressure's doing great, buddy. How you feeling, though?
Brandon: I'm feeling like we only have like 30 minutes before you go.
Jessica: It's very true, but I'll be back in the morning, 7 am.
Brandon: It's a date.
Jessica: All right.
Lisa: Everything was going great for about two months. A week or two ago I got a phone call at work and it was a student at MiraCosta saying the ambulance was called to come pick him up.
Brandon: I've been having a-fib again. Was it three times?
Dr. Gillespie: This is a common occurrence. The electrical pathways can reconnect and require a second procedure.
Brandon: Bring it here, bring it here.
Female Nurse: How, I'd say it's good to see you. It is good to see you but it's, you know….
Brandon: It's hard, it's hard because I love all these people but I never want to see you guys again.
Female Nurse: I know.
Dr. Gillespie: He rolls with the punches. He may get knocked down from time to time, he gets up and he keeps moving.
Brandon: Let's go.
Male Voice: Hey, Brandon….
Female Voice: Happy Birthday! Look at what you're doing on your 21st birthday!
Dr. Gillespie: He has such a big heart in so many different ways.
Dana: So we just induced an arrhythmia.
Dr. Athill: When someone goes into atrial fibrillation, the top chamber of the heart can beat anywhere from 400 to 600 beats per minute.
OK. Go on.
Male Voice: 36, 36 6….
Dr. Athill: Off.
Dr. Gillespie: All's good as it relates to atrial fibrillation today. We still have our challenges ahead of us. We're optimistic but at the same time realistic that this is a lifelong battle that he and I will have to deal with.
Dr. Gillespie: Things went well.
Dr. Gillespie: Got the a-fib.
Brandon: I have learned a heavy lesson through all of this — even in times of hardship, you can't focus on death so much, you have to just live your life while you have it. I'm looking forward to stability, I'm looking forward to a weight off my shoulders, I don't have to worry as much about, is tomorrow gonna come for me.
Life is good.
Colleen: It actually is the greatest gift we could ever be given, to know that you've made that kind of impact on someone's life.
Brandon: It's about that time where I stop having problems and just live and be cool and be 21. Turns out, I'm like a mini Tiger Woods! (laughs)
David: I love it. I can't, I can't even express how happy I am to be in here.
Kevin: A big old truck can't hurt me, right? Right? I'm like, "Get off me, truck, I got to come home to see my boys."
Colleen: To all of us, love is an expression of life. We want our patients to be better, to leave, to have a full life. To go back to their families, their passions, what inspires them … and what they can be.
Mom #6: Welcome to the world, little girl. We're so excited to meet you.
Announcer: The Sharp Experience begins when you choose a physician at 1-800-82-SHARP or www.sharp.com. Sharp accepts almost all health insurance.
