(CNN) -- At her research lab at the University of Louisville, neuroscientist Susan Harkema turned her back to her study subject to check a reading on a computer screen. "Hey Susie, look at this," the patient called out to her. "I can move my toe!" Startled, Harkema spun around. The purpose of her study, which involves sending electrical stimulation to broken spinal cords, was to learn more about nerve pathways, not to actually make patients move.

I couldn't believe what was happening to me: I had fallen down from a ladder and broke my pelvis and two vertebrae. I was able to crawl into the house, but I could not get up so my husband called 9-1-1 and I was taken to the trauma center at Maine Medical Center. Following my hospitalization and subsequent surgery, I went to the New England Rehab Hospital for three weeks, followed by Brentwood Center for Health & Rehabilitation for another three weeks. Brentwood Center was so convenient (right in Yarmouth) for my husband to visit me every day, but more importantly, the staff is great: they are caring, helpful, and patient. All of them are wonderful, really. CNA Jen was especially helpful with my brace. The CNA Kathy never saw a TLSO brace before and did it wonderfully. It was impressive! The rehab staff was nice. They were helpful. Shawn and Robbie were great. They motivated me. The private room was nice too. I would recommend Brentwood to my friends and family. The staff is so nice to everybody I feel good! I am ready to go home!
