I just read SCI nurse posts. I have been on these boards a lot since my son's accident in Aug. At first I read Dr. Young's articles. i have read many posts of people with SCI here with great intrest. i have seen my son get stronger, ableit not as fast or stronger as i hoped. Now I am feeling deflated because after the inital realistic hope , Iamfeeling that he is not getting anything back. I got too much information or just read to much in them to get false hope. Everyone tells me it is early, but is it really? 8 weeks today and now i am thinking he will never get more than he has now. I felt I lied to him too. that is the hardestvthing to grasp I lied to my son. about his recovery. He saw on this website posts that he may get "substansial return back"
