So as of tomorrow we're at 6 months after hypoxic brain injury. My daughter has been in her care home for 2 months and has survived an assorted array of chest infections, catheter infections and the beginnings of pressure sores. (All inherited from her time in hospital and not down to the home, where the staff are excellent). When these young girls are worrying about fitting into their size 8 jeans I bet no-one thinks to warn them of the high risk of pressure sores from being so skinny, lol.
Suddenly last week she started crying. It has happened 3 times with no common trigger - not the same visitor, not the same activity or music playing. Does this mean anything? She still can't track with her eyes or do any consistent blink response, so there is otherwise no sign of anything that isn't reflexive.
Has anyone been here? Is the crying the sign of a change or breakthrough?
