Motor and Verbal tics after septic shock?

Our 8 year old went into septic shock this past March from an infection after an oral surgery. He was in the PICU for 7 days sedated with a tube until the infection and swelling subsided. 4 months later he has developed motor (shrugging his shoulder and eye rolling, blinking, etc...) and vocal tics (grunting, humming, gulping, etc...)... Could this possibly be related?
