  •  I learned this first hand when my son.. (5+ / 0-)

    suffered a TBI 4-1/2 years ago.
    At first it was possible he would remain in a coma, then he made slow progress with major personality changes that scared the crap out of us. Then his recovery picked up to the point where the hospital was under pressure from the insurance company to get him out of the ICU (dam insurance bastards).
    Within a month he was 75% back.
    Then another rapid period of recovery.
    Today he is not yet 100% and may never be but close enough for us to feel extremely fortunate.
    He turns 29 in 2 days.
    We know first hand what gut wrenching stress and fear family members of TBI suffers go through.
    Indeed no two cases are the same. It changed our lives forever.
    It made us aware of how we need to educate people to be very aware of head injury no matter how insignificant they initially are.
    I have been quite bold  telling complete strangers who I observe not providing themselves or families head protection riding bikes etc the potential consequences of their actions.

    peace.
