DALLAS - A woman is making a remarkable comeback after a life-threatening infection took away her voice, an arm and both legs.
Felecia Gussman said thank you in a song to the staff at Baylor Scott and White Rehabilitation.
The 30-year-old had been singing her entire life, working in Nashville and playing in a band. But after a sepsis infection that resulted in amputations, her vocal cords were also paralyzed.
And it’s not just singing that she’s relearning. She’s also working hard to walk again using prosthetics.
“I never gave up and I went every single day. I don’t think I skipped just because I knew I wanted to walk again and do things on my own and not have to depend on people as much,” Gussman said.
She still has a long way to go but said she continues to be thankful for the therapists she works with and the progress they’ve helped her achieve.
