• What are the odds that a person who loses half of his skull in an accident survives?

    When my husband was 7, his skull was crushed and mashed under the wheel of a car. It was unrecoverable. Luckily his dura mater was intact. It was rebuilt by a skilled surgeon with ribs and other body parts. What are the odds that he would have survived?
