My son's dad had a terrible fall on 5/14. He's only 38 years old. Broken vertebrae at c4 and c5 crushed into his spinal cord. It's not severed. Now, he's been moved to Spaulding, only has feeling in shoulders and head, body is finally accepting a feeding tube, has pneumonia, and is on full vent because his lungs keep filling with fluid. Upon arrival yesterday Spaulding, they said he's a C7 quad so far.
What can we expect at this point? What is important to watch for? Be afraid of? I just don't know how things progress pr what to hope for. Any info will be helpful.
