My return to print
I mean, sure, the whole Hickey-gets-hit-by-car-and-almost-dies story has been told by just about every media outlet in the city. And I truly appreciate it, because it meant a lot to the people who care about me and want the hit-and-run driver captured.
But, Monday marks the first time I've written a column about anything in the two months and just about three weeks since.
If I may get a little emotional here, once I woke up from the coma and realized something very bad had happened to me, I worried about my wife, dad and family first. Then, I was certain that I'd lost the ability to write, and it broke my spirits more than not being able to move my right arm or leg did. Baby steps turned into healthier steps, though. Sure, I'm not back to full Hickey force yet, but hopefully these Metro columns show that I'm on the road to total recovery.
