Three days after the head injury, Charlie's still not eating, still groggy, still off. He'll start talking, then pause with a little panicked look in his eyes because he can't find the word.
His occupational therapist ran him through a few things today and found nothing to be overly concerned about. His coordination hasn't worsened and he doesn't seem to have lost any intellectual capacity.
It's just those pesky words.
After that, Dowlan took him to the doctor. There are no signs of lasting damage or infection. He said he'll eat when he's ready to eat. Just make sure to keep him hydrated and keep it low-key.
Low-key is pretty easy to do right now. He perks up for 15-20 minute spurts, before lolling around again. He even behaved in Wal*Mart yesterday. If that won't rile him up, nothing will.
I just don't know.
