TBI One Love Survivor Alun Jackson
Hello, my name is Steph and my son Alun suffered a severe traumatic brain injury on July 21 2015.
They removed part of his skull to help relieve the swelling on his brain. He was in the ICU for 10 days and in a induced coma for 8 of those days. He was in rehab for 2 weeks after that. He passed all the OT and speech therapies within days of starting therapies and we got to bring him home about a month after his injury. about a month and a half after that they put the missing pieces of his skull back in. We are so lucky to have such a strong brave little boy. He amazes me everyday. In just a few days he will be back to normal activities and back to school full time.
Update: Alun completed 24 hyperberic treatments. That seemed to have helped his mood and concentration. He is also back in school full time and got clearned from the hospital to do all activities he enjoyed before.
