Update on Nathan Black
Rehab at the Shepherd Center as of today, Dr.Dennison changed his inpatient projected discharge date from 2/14/2013 to 1/30/2013. Nathan will be staying with his mom at the apt where shes been staying since she got there until the beginning of April.
1942 Clairmont Rd
He will have extensive Therapies to learn independents and every day living with assistance and supervision at all times. Dr. Dennison wanted to change his medicine (Amantidine) that helps with neuro stimulate, and calms the brain to a different medication because Nathan seems to be making little to no progress in his memory functions and cognitive disorder but it had very bad side effects of seizures so I didn't want to change it at this time.
Nathan is still in the confused state of mind & Dr. Dennison is giving him 2 months from when the accident happen to come out of this Cognitive Disorder because if he doesn't Nathan will likely stay in this state of mind forever & he will never be able to be on his own, he will always need assistance for the rest of his life. & need supervision 24/7 to keep him safe. He will not be able to return to college for another 2 years, if at all :( and more then likely it's looking more dim for him to return to Pre med.
I can tell you that our family has been turned upside down forever. I just pray that he over achieve's the Doctors expectations and proves everyone wrong! God and Nathans amazing brain only knows this answer to what his future holds. It's all up to him and the man up stairs. Please everyone keep praying for him that he will recovery from this Traumatic Brain Injury and all of his cognitive disorder subsides.
Nathan will be tested for 3 hours with the Neuropsych on Monday to see where he stands in the Domains of cognition disorder and Post Traumatic stress disorder Amnesia.
