Joshua Adam Dover, First Thoughts at the Hospital
In this interview Joshua shares what his first thoughts were when he woke up in the hospital after a major motorcycle accident. For the first 7 days he thought he was captured, and a prisoner of, Al Qaeda. He was trying every tactic he had learned in the Marines to find a way to escape. This delusional thinking was as a result of the side effects of the pain killer they had given him. He had no pain but was having delusional thinking. We as a family were thinking this was evidence of him having a brain injury. We were obviously many times praying without knowing what was going on, but God still answered our prayers.

Joshua shares update on his rehab from his motorcycle accident. In this podcast he shares that he no longer has the uncontrollable throbbing of his leg and convulsions, but sadly when he gets into level 7 and up pain they continue to happen. UPDATE The good news is since the recording of this podcast Joshua had the surgery to remove the filter and it was successful. Bad News is he had stroke symptoms later. Turned out he had an episode of conversion disorder, he was battling level 9 pain.. Found out one of the major reasons for his high levels pf pain is hip surgery did not work, his hip bone is actually dying. So he will need a hip replacement surgery. This is a big setback but Joshua will ultimately have relief from much of the pain he has currently.
