My son, 17 on 7-7-15, sustained a spinal cord injury at the end of June as a result of a swimming incident. He underwent surgery to fuse C3-C6, has motor control of only his upper arms/shoulders but sensory almost everywhere (cannot distinguish hot/cold but can feel "something"). He's currently still ventilator dependent but trying to wean off (55cc on his own yesterday). He's still in a great deal of pain on and off and is incredibly frustrated. We are at a very good rehab center that we trust completely, but I am feeling useless and running out of ways to keep his focus positive.
