A Long Triage To Air Veteran’s Day


Forty years after the war, during a regular business day, Vietnam veteran Attorney Kerry

Sullivan’s brain hemorrhages from a Spontaneous Subdural Hematoma. Rushed to the hospital in

an ambulance, he undergoes emergency brain surgery. Experiencing a rare reaction to the anesthesia, he awakes in a state of delirium screaming about the war.

His rehabilitation and recovery included physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech

therapy for the recent surgery, which exacerbated an MTBI from the war resulting in stroke like symptoms. In addition, he participated in Narrative Therapy. A therapy which is based on writing exercises designed to help patients struggling with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
