    It still breaks me, 17 years after, to know that little had changed with regards to TBI. I am in The UK and there are many specialist centres for the brain injured but they are not funded by our health service. I will never get over how my child was discharged when his recovery still had so far to go. Nothing was followed up over the years. Not their problem any more. I am glad we gave so much of our love and time to him, his recovery has been nothing short of a miracle. I know this is because of our work. Our efforts. Our love. It will be the same for you but it’s such a long and hard and lonely journey. It’s one journey I’ve never recovered from, it’s still so painful and life changing. The power that time of his accident is so profound, I never thought it possible to be so consumed with all that TBI brings with it. Good luck and blessings to you both, you are both awsome.

      This is the same way it is in USA, maybe even worse. Therapy centers that specialize in TBI exist, but getting into them is torturous. I am so sorry to hear that your child was discharged the way they were. And I commend you for taking the matter into your own hands. I did the same. I had no other choice. I am so thrilled to hear he has recovered so well, no doubt because of you and your hand work! It is a long and arduous journey but one that is not without its blessings. Thank you so much for sharing this with me.

    Story well told and so sadly true .
    My son is still and most likely will always be a work in progress but will only move forward as long as we keep fighting for him and guiding him. So my prayers for Jane and all the Jane’s out there .
    And for you Anj for all your hard work and caring. We need a lot more people out there like you.
    God Bless
