Mark continues to receive rehab and round the clock care at a post hospital facility due to his TBI ( traumatic brain injury) and nerve injury. Since his hands don’t work, He remains totally dependent to eat, go to the bathroom, pick-up anything, bath, dress, or give himself any care. The insurance company seems to be ignoring this major complication to the rule of making progress in all areas. Mark has had to leave two hospitals in a state of inability to care for himself due to the injuries to his arms.
Mark and Tara are on a very long Journey as Mark recovers physically and mentally. Tara continues to work full time and has been Mark’s best advocate during the past 7 weeks. I don’t know how much money to even ask for...the cost of a personal care attendant for Mark if insurance stops paying for medical services is a huge expense. Especially if it takes 2 years to re-grow Marks nerves. The idea of 1 income and all the medical expenses looming I just feel like I have to do something for them.
