  • I hope the original stig makes it out soon.
    I enjoy ruining threads by making them about personal attacks and then commenting about how personal attacks make the other person's argument invalid.

  • Injurys like that can literally take years to get any resolution. I believe it was Parnelli Jones that had a son with a severe head injury that took 4-5 years to get any semblence of a normal life back. He now has a family but still isn't the sharpest and will probably never take over his Fathers business empire.

    Jones sold a car at last years Barrett Jackson and the money went to the group/hospital that saved his son and continues to do that work.

    On to week two. Week one was not a fluke!

    there's hoping. I think he might be the kind of guy who has enough burning ambition in him to get out of this at least kind of OK. But, on the other hand, who knows how much of his 'old personality' will be left after this serious brain damage.

  • Having read about it further, it isn't that great news. He's gone from vegetative to minimally aware which very few people ever make a meaningful recovery from. This guy sums it up: http://formerf1doc.wordpress.com/2014/06/16/good-news/

    He may go on to make a further recovery but it looks very unlikely and it looks like his quality of life might be really poor.

    He's 6 months down the line and is minimally aware. That's the number one outcome you don't want from a head injury.
