braininjuryallianceofnjA #TBIaffectedme story from Silvia Ayala aka @silvia15 about little Mikey....
Mikey was an 18 mnth old when he fell off a chair and suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury. He suffered a subdural hematoma that resulted in significant brain shift.
The neuro team performed an emergency operation. His brain was still very
swollen after they removed his blood clot so they decided to leave his bone
flap off. Baby Mikey was on life support and in a medically induce coma for
weeks. Doctors advised us he could be in bed the rest of his life. About a month later he went into another operation to place his bone flap back on. After that, slowly but
surely he was showing improvements. He remained in the hospital for 3 months. We
were receiving inpatient physical, speech, & occupational therapy. Baby Mikey had to learn EVERYTHING all over again. He's now making so many improvements everyday, he's a miracle!"
One of the cutest miracles we've ever seen, @silvia15!
