Amazingly, she survived and two months later, she is learning how to walk again with a walker. It's truly amazing what the brain can survive: we have seen this ourselves with Chris' brain injury in the NICU, in addition to a cardiac arrest our friends' son survived.
A few years ago we had our own near miss with a log and a sneaker wave. I could have been trapped under a log, or one of my kids could have been.
Please, spread the word. Don't play on logs on the beach, unless they are far, far, far away from the water and there is no chance a wave could come in. And if a wave does come in, stay away from logs. It takes only about four inches of water to float a five-ton log.
