So i havent updated on mom and dads wreck in a long time. Its been a little over a month now since they had the wreck. Mom is still sore and her collar bone break doesnt seem to be getting better.
Dad is now in rehab (they moved him this past friday, i think). We are now getting to see what damage has been done. He is physically fine and has had no issues walking and stuff. But sadly he has gobal aphasia which is the worse of the aphasia's to get. He has an extremely hard time talking :-( He knows what he wants to say but cant say it. He cant write or read either. It gets frustrating for him at times which is understandable. He also has aphonic speech (whispering things). His right vocal chord is paralyzed and it may never heal. The Aphasia may never go way either, only time will tell.
He has to wear a helmet since he doesnt have a left bone flap (for right now). He HATES it. The other day he tried to "run away" from the rehab. Well some of us was sitting with him yesterday and i said "daddy next time you try to run away at least put your helmet on first." He asks someone to get him his helmet (he can communicate by hand gestures and us guessing) and he holds it up to us and says "it so stupid." It was so clear and plain as day. It was so freaking hilarious. He has told the nurses "i done." He doesnt want to be there no more he wants to be at home.
He has also said he is NEVER driving again or working that he is going to spend his time fishing O_o lol.
He told mom "monday, tuesday, wednesday, thursday, friday, saturday. All i do is work, no more work."
He cant see well. You have to be directly in front of him and then he can only see 4 points of you and he sees 4 of you. This too we are unsure if it will go away or not.
He will tell you "my body good. My mind bad."
He is still very much child like. Which should go away but may not. Who knows.
At this point we are still stuck in the unknown and do not know how much will heal and how much won't. Either way we dont care, we are just happy that Dad is alive.
He has came a long ways over the last month.
