My ex husband,Geoff,suffered a SAH seven months ago and does not yet walk or speak. He has managed the odd word now and again but nothing convincing. He has also responded to family with smiles and cheeky gestures. He is now in his third hospital and we have been told he is to be discharged in two months time as he isn't progressing and they don't foresee any iminent change.
Our son and daughter are very saddened by this, although they always understood it was a possibility, but our expectations were clouded by the fact that I had a SAH just six months before and, although there are always residual problems, I was home and functioning within three months. They had seen me at the worst stages of the illness, so they were still recovering from that trauma when their dad collapsed with the same thing.....awful for them.
So, for all our sakes, I would really appreciate any information from anyone with experience of progress after such a long period. It would be something to hold on to that Geoff might,one day,have some quality of life,
