So, I've been doing a bit of googling regarding coma patients.
I don't think he's in a coma.
The same day I was reading about that, my sister texted me to say TheBoy isn't actually in a coma.
Funny how many of these "coincidental" timings have occurred since it first happened.
Considering what I've seen first hand and been told from the family that is there all the time, combined with what I could read, I think he is actually in a "minimally conscious state". I would say definitely when he's off sedation.
The good news? MCS has one of the better 12-month prognoses of all traumatic brain injury states.
