Simon Lewis was an up and coming Hollywood producer whose first successful movie was "Look Who's Talking." He had struggled until he started to find success. Simon Lewis was busier than ever and very excited over his career starting off. He met his wife Marcy, and married a year later in 1995.
Five months after they were married, Simon and Marcy were in their Infiniti on their way to a restaurant for dinner when a white van ran a stop sign, hitting Lewis's Infiniti at 77 mph. Marcy is killed in the passenger seat and Simon is crushed. It took 2 Jaws of Life to cut the car so that Simon could be removed. In the meantime, the driver of the white van runs off. Simon's brain is swelling, he is bleeding internally, nearly a third of the right hemisphre of his brain has been destroyed and he had an epidural, subdural and intraparenchymal hematomas in his brain.
Simon developed blindsight which is a rare condition where the person is blind but can see through blind spots without realizing that they can see. Even though they are blind, they will walk around objects in front of them.
This is a bittersweet story of a remarkable man who has been through a horrible ordeal. It is well worth reading to see how one person struggled and worked so hard to make it to recovery as much as he can. This is also a very inspirational story of love, loss, recovery and living again.
