Today was….depressing. I’m worried that Eric is moving into another setback. What I’ve read about TBI is that a TBI survivor will have several setbacks during recovery for years to come. I’ve read about it, I know it will happen but I’m not sure if I’m ready for it. Will I ever be? And will Eric ever be ready? Something changed Eric after I placed the color coned in front of him yesterday. I’m worried I triggered something bad off, but I knew the day had to come when he realizes what’s going on. Eric had a fever this afternoon so he could be getting sick, or something major could be wrong, he could just be tired from all the activity, or depressed…. I don’t know yet but something is definitely off, and I will talk with the doctor about it in the morning.
However, he did spend most of the morning in the wheelchair, keeping his two aunts busy by following him around. He did get some exercise done today, and I guess so did they.
A new Speech Therapist came by and she actually seamed to care about Eric and she really wanted to help, which I can’t say that the other person did…. This will be a huge help for Eric and I’m looking forward to see what she can do for him.
