I need some advice. My 18 year-old granddaughter suffered a brain injury in a car accident just a year ago. She was in a coma for 3 months, then rehab before coming home. She's made a miraculous recovery (you might have seen her story in the NZWomens Weekly a while ago) and is back studying away in Balclutha. However, it's obvious that she's not fully recovered and nor would we expect her to be. Mostly she's fine but does not not always think rationally and comes out with some weird ideas. I've read lots of stuff about brain injury but my question is this: When she tells me that she's fine now and doesn't have a brain injury any more, how should I answer? I can tell you it's been a difficult year. Cheers Pixie
