Michael Jordan of Greenwood was never supposed to make it home for the holidays.
Tethered to a ventilator and unable to walk, the 40-year-old seemed destined to live out his life at Methodist Specialty Care Center in Flowood.
The residential care facility is designed for the severely disabled, and Jordan knew he needed the center’s expertise. Still, he couldn’t imagine a future so far from family.
“I was depressed and I wanted to give up,” he said. “But the big man above wouldn’t let me give up.”
