Hi everyone, I am a Mother with a Daughter who suffered a hypoxic brain injury through being hypo (she is diabetic) and having a lot of drink and drugs in her system. She was at a friends house and they all thought she was asleep, and she was left a long time.
Three months on and she is in a brain rehab hospital. I go every day to see her and can't wait for her to come home. She is 33 and has a 12 year old boy.
She definitely recognises me and even said Mum the other day, which was fantastic! It was the 1st word I have heard her say since her injury. Although the nurses have told me that she has said a few choice 4 letter words when they are turning her and pulling her about. But I hadn't heard any.
I understand it it going to be a hard and long journey for Kelly and all of us, and that it is early days. It seems a lifetime ago that I spoke to her or received a phone call or text message. I miss her a lot.
It is helping me to read about all of your experiences here. Please keep them coming
