The next he was in an induced coma, victim of a baffling disease which doctors raced against time to decipher. While most people spend a day or two in an Intensive Care Unit before they transition to a normal wing of a hospital, Dean battled for his life in ICU for eight long weeks.What makes Dean’s fight to survive even more remarkable is that during this time he was completely unaware – consciously – of the traumas his body was experiencing. However, subconsciously, his brain kept him alerted to the powerful efforts that were being made to keep him alive. When doctors bathed him in ice to reduce a raging fever, Dean’s brain had him swimming beneath the North Pole, shivering with the chill. When nurses performed painful medical procedures, Dean was in a kitchen at a party, being attacked by waitresses with knives.Delve into the fascinating world of how the human mind adapts to sensations even while in the depths of a coma. View the progress of Dean’s recovery from within and without, and see how these two realities, both seeming fully authentic to Dean’s mind, separated and merged. Most of all, you will come away with a sense of just how precious life is, and how our dreams really can shape our realities.
