thank you Richard C Senelick, MD that gives me hope to understand more why he cant understand it just takes time. And the speech pathologist havent yet work with him because he was in icu from having Pneumonia but know he been cured from that. And some days he opens his eyes and other days he dosent. But ill contine talking to him like you said. One more thing can people get out of this in months or years back to their normal lives?Do they die from this or he in a conditiond to recover? I hope he recovers i miss my dad the way he was i just miss him so much!View Thread
