Update on my son

Hopeful1966 profile image

We had my sons 3 monthly review last week and the progress he has made is amazing. The DNAR has been removed and his morphine has been halved. He has gone from lower end of MCS- to the upper end of MCS+ on the verge of emergence. His mobility has improved so now he doesn’t need to have a baclofen pump. He is not talking yet but he is very vocal and joins in conversations in his own way. He can mark make with a pen on paper and can do basic things on an iPad. Everyone at his rehab unit is amazed by him. This time last year the hospital told us he would never be able to do anything but now he’s trying to brush his teeth and he’s wiping his face with a towel. We never gave up hope and he is now proving the hospital wrong.
