My dad is suffering with a hyproxic brain injury due to an incident where he was without oxygen for up to 30 mins. At the beginning we were told there was little to no chance of him being anything other than in a vegative state, when the machines were turned off they were shocked when he started responding, they soon after put the feeding tubes back in. The incident happened on the 11th Sept 2016, and my dad can now walk with some assistance, he shaves and feeds himself, he can recognise everyone and still has his same humor. He can also talk but he usually mimes as he says it tires him out. The nurses don't seem to be seeing what my family are seeing,as they don't know him like we do. Has anyone had similar experience and can give me some possible outcomes?
