was working on a ladder in his Orland Park garage when he lost control of a nail gun
and accidentally smacked it against his head. He texted a photo of the small scratch on his scalp to his fiance Gail Glaenzer,
and thought nothing more of it. He went about his business driving a plow truck for some eight hours, and even dropped off his kids for a play rehearsal. It wasn't until waking up nauseous from a nap that he was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center and a three and a half inch nail was found lodged in his brain.
