Something else to think about...

I'm gonna need some kind of help, via books or something, on coaching Tom through recovery. I would imagine he'll get super frustrated if he has a lot of work to do at rehab and possibly depressed. There has to be some good resources for caretakers about what to say, what not to say, what's helpful to a patient, etc.

Do you want me to talk to Dr. Hayslip on Monday? I'm sure he could point you to many resources. :)
And yay for your twitter updates this morning!! What a blessing!

If you're at any kind of decent rehab facility, there will be a lot of support and education for you as well. I worked Rehab in the beginning of my career, and our patients were like family to us.

Hey you can ask social workers at the hospital to steer you in the right direction as far as rehab goes. I heard that with a brain injury they probably wont discharge him until he has started rehab. Check into it! Hope that helps!

Rehab centers usually have information and training for caregivers of the patient. I'm sure wherever Tom goes they'll have help for you too.
