hi everyone im new to this site in the hope someone can help me
my husband had a hypoxic brain injury due to a cardic arrest he was without a pulse for 20minutes in december 2020,he was in a neuro rehab unit for 5months he started to eat drink and walk with assitance but has involuntry head and body movements which makes him very unstable to walk .
its been nearly 12months and his cognition is still very bad he cant remember the day,time and year we in or what he eat or where he is. is very unpredictable is very impulsive and trys to abscond, during the day time he cant really talk and when he does we cant really understand him he can read and understand everything he is now improved in his writing to but the werid thing is during the night he talks so clearly that everyone can understands him he has a long conversation which seems so werid and i dont know why this is happing .
since his brain injury he either sleeps so much all day and night sometimes more than 18hrs or does not sleep at all so his awake for 24hrs
in terms of his short term memory which is really bad does that ever get better or does it get worse his only 33 we only just got married a 8months before the injury i just want to really help him but just dont know how to with his short term memory my world has fallen apart looking at him like this really breaks my heart but im so grateful to god that he is still alive
