9/15 Chuck's prognosis

Doctors at Edwin Shaw have stated that Chuck could have near to full recovery in 18-24 months (with some changes) and that we will likely see significant increase in cognitive and speech ability in the next 3-4 months.

Chuck never had significant brain swelling, never had brain surgery or removal of brain tissue, and no skull opening to relieve swelling. He had bleeding (which reabsorbs), bruising (which heals), and shearing (which reconnects).

He is in otherwise perfect health, and as of this week, completely medicine free.
