Hi, my 24yr old son suffered a tbi in August 2012 and i was told to prepare for the worst. Thankfully the worst didnt happen and we still have him. He is unable to communicate, has limited movement in his limbs and is totally dependant, but has always recognised us. The last couple of months he has been in rehab unit and lately has become much more aware, smiling at us and trying to talk. We can now hear his voice when he laughs! I was informed on Friday that he will be discharged in the next few weeks - he has just started to make progress?? Has anyone been in this position? Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I am totally lost. Thank you
