My sisters fiance (26 years old) should have died. While at work he was hit in the head by a rotating piece or metal which cuts steel. It split his head open penetrating his brain. I knew the paramedic who responded, he said "Pat" should have died. I rushed to the hospital where he was already rushed up to surgery. The chaplin stood by. My sister feel apart. I do have a medical background and in talking with the ICU staff, I knew that if Pat even survived he might not be able to function at all. That was 8 months ago, he can walk, talk, and he even got his drivers liscence back. He seemed great until 2 nights ago. I guess he had everyone fooled about how good he was doing. He said he was taking his seizure medication, but obviously was forgetting. His short term memory is a bit weak. 2 nights ago, he had his first seizure at 3 am, while in bed sleeping. The seizure woke my sister up, she was scared and called an ambulance. The wedding is still on for June 16th 2007, but I wonder if he will get any better? I have read that the behavoiural differences and issues with short term memory can get better but after 6 months that is pretty much where he will stay. He is a bit childlike, he definately has a different personality. I am sure love will get them through. They have my love and support. Does anyone need to talk about their experience? If anyone has any comments or questions just ask. I guess I just wanted to throw this out there.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
