Musician Mark Thallander was lying on an operating table in August after a car wreck, pleading with doctors not to amputate his crushed left arm. " 'I'm an organist, I'm an organist,' I kept telling them," he said. But the arm could not be saved. Doctors did manage to save Thallander's life, giving him several transfusions to replace the 70% of his blood he lost. He was released seven days later. But then came therapy, during which he had to learn how to balance his walk.
