“Walking Miracle” Writes Memoir About Recovery from Locked-In Syndrome

Five years ago, Jose Rodriguez Jr. of Aurora suffered a stroke known as locked-in syndrome, that allowed him only to control his eyes. This type of stroke caused Rodriguez to experience extreme heat, inability to breathe, swallow or move, due to a disabled brain stem. Today, his doctor calls him a “walking miracle.” He’s writing a memoir on a laptop from the desk his father helps him to, of his miraculous journey to recovery. (Chicago Tribune)
