David Jeffers was injured on August 1, 2011.

While on vacation with his family at the beach he was struck by a wave, with such force, that he broke two vertebrae (C5 and C6) as well as fractured C4. Because of these injuries, his spinal cord was bruised. He realized immediately that something serious had happened but was unable to move and could not get himself out of the ocean. Fortunately his wife and nephew noticed he wasn’t moving and pulled him to safety. He was operated on in Wilmington and then transferred to CMC in Charlotte. He and his family later decided to transfer him to Shepherd Center in Atlanta, where he completed 4 months of rehabilitation.

We just celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary! I was injured about 4 years into our marriage and I’m happy to say we’ve done more than survive, we are having our best marriage/life in spite of it all. Check out the sweet video my wife made for me.

I forgot that I promised to do more Quad-Life insights throughout the year, so first let me apologize for not getting them done.

Just this week I had a situation that with my van that after explaining the situation to a couple of people, I realized this would be a great opportunity for an “insight” so here goes:

I had to take my van to the shop because it started over heating. At first, I was told it was the radiator but it turned out to be much worse. Yep, you guessed it the engine was fried and it has to be replaced.
