My niece was in an auto accident on Aug 6 2018. She's been at St.Louis Children's ever since. She does make progress every week but this article makes me more concerned than I already was. I have read many times that the young mind has a better chance of recovery than an older mind, however, what you write makes since. How can they relearn something they didn't have yet. My niece was a cheerleader who made straight A's who was already going to college every day her junior year and what was going to be her senior year has so far been in the hospital. She would have graduated with her high school diploma and an associates degree. We don't know how far she'll go. This is hard to read and accept.
