Helping Brent Get Home

On Jan 2, 2017 my son and his family of four were victims in a serious car accident when they were hit by an inpared driver on Methamphetamine, another amphetamine, and cannabis. My son & granddaughter were both med flighted to Dartmouth Hitchcock. His 1 mo. old luckily was untouched, his 22 yr old girlfriend received a broken forearm from the crash requiring plates and screws. My 21 month old granddaughter was put in an induced coma and had to have immediate surgery, caused from a serious open brain injury. She is now awake and making great improvements at the rehabilitation center where she will be released from soon, to go home. Sadly, she will be doing this without her daddy/best friend. My son is more maternal than paternal and that's somewhat of a rarity these days. Brent was struck so hard in his head that he was instantly unconscious in a coma, he had collapsed lungs and was barely breathing, had a C spine fracture, and suffered an open fracture to his elbow that shattered it during the impact.
He was the sole provider for his family financially and emotionally.
Now at day 51 since the accident, Brent has and still defies odds against him. His lungs have healed and he's breathing on his own, his elbow is healed, as well as the C Spine fracture. However, his brain needs help with healing and is going to take some time. Brent is at Spaulding Rehabilitation Center and doing well. His brain is healing and he's progressing everyday to make his way home. Currently Brent's hips and knees don't bend.
His feet are turned in as well. His level of consciousness is increasing slowly. He responds to some comands and completes them. His drive is still very strong. His path to get home needs to remain open.  Getting struck by an inpared driver changed his life and the life of his family in a second.
We need help to show Brent home is possible and definite.
Please help to get Brent home and to his family with mobility to do so. Thank you for what is able to come forward as it will certainly give much needed help.
A mother's motto: We're ok with slow, as long as slow is forward.
We love you, Brent

Thank You
-Lisa & family
