Earlier this week, Mr Trifectagirl was assessed for a brain injury rehabilitation unit.

On the pro side of the assessment - he has excellent sitting balance which will allow him to participate in the activities, and he's young.

On the con side - he has chronic back pain (which they're working on alleviating) and seemed not to understand instructions or questions, nor copy actions.  For example he answered 'yes' to 'are you in a hotel?', and couldn't poke his tongue out.  He did however also identify he was in a hospital.

The doctor acknowledged it was a relatively quick assessment, and the conclusion is he's been accepted into the unit to have a shot at rehab. 

So yet again, we're waiting on a bed, and then phase 3 of recovery begins.
