My brother in law and my sister were assaulted on the 18th June. The attack resulted in my brother in law suffering from a TBI and is now in a coma (not an induced coma) he has a GCS score of 4 and we've been told it's likely he may never wake up. I understand the TBI has caused him to have mutilple mini strokes and from what we have been told by the Neuro team a large part of his brain is dead. He's has a tracheotomy fitted and is breathing on his own intermittently. He seems to react to certain things the nurses do, for instance when they clear his airways or open his eyes to test for pupil response. As you can understand we're all feeling very lost and upset by the unknown and there are questions that the professionals can't answer. I have done so much reading and would just like to hear of any stories where a similar outcome has defied the odds and things progressed. I understand it's a lengthy process with TBI and we're not giving up. My sister and her husband have four beautiful babies aged 9, 7, 4 and 2. He has everything to fight for. I just wish I could give my sister a boost of hope.
Thank you xxx
