We have been called to a clinical review at the rehabilitation centre that Kev is at the moment. I am both anxious and apprehensive as this is where the clinical staff get together with the family and we discuss his progress so far and what they hope to achieve in the future. I am wondering whether at this 8 month point whether they will be able to tell me what sort of recovery he will make and how long until they think he will be able to come home. I visited last week and he was not aggressive at all and was very sweet and loving - I have never been as happy, I got lots of hugs and kisses Obviously he is still very confused and his memory is shot but I actually saw a glimpse of Kev which, I was starting to wonder would ever be there!! I really hope that with continued rehab and physio (he is very weak) he will get there in the end
Clinical Review: We have been called to a clinical... - Headway
When you go for the review, take someone with you - it's hard to remember everything on your own. Write down everything you want to know so nothing gets forgotten.
Kev will not be the same person for the future but that is not to say that he will be worse - just not the same person you had before. Be prepared for a lot of hard work to get him back to the best he can be.
Yes I am going with some of his family so we can all take notes of what has been said. I know its going to be a long long road and I just hope I am prepared for that. I kind of feel that I have been kept back from him (for his own good im sure) and they seem to frown on me calling or visiting so I feel like a big distance between us. Once he is home I am sure things will click back into place.
