    Article quote: "According to her medical team, Lais underwent surgery to realign and stabilize her spinal column," the university said in the release. "Lais is awake and following commands but unable to move her arms or legs and requires a ventilator to breathe."

    Man!, that's awful. To me, health-wise, being paralyzed is my biggest fear.

    My thoughs and prayers are with you, Lais.

    Good time for some Brasilian Portuguese speaking folks to connect up. Nothing sounds better thousands of miles from home than your own language.
