Heartbreaking to watch, it must be so frustrating for the guy to have a brain the same as yours and mine but not the facility to use it at the speed he wants. It didn't explain if he could write or type, presumably not.

#3 JJ The guy may have [a brain the same as yours and mine] but only in terms of the most basic physical elements and even then – not terribly accurate. He clearly suffered a great deal of neural and possibly cortical damage due to oxygen deprivation. It is even possible that sections of his brain are neutrally ‘dead’ so his brain, due to tragedy, is not the same as your or mine.

What is amazing is the plasticity of the brain and the ability of the brain to re-wire itself around damaged areas. And the brain’s ability to still work even when damage has occurred. His motor functions are impaired, his speech, the articulators, etc but he perseveres.

Of course it should be mentioned that the cost of his care must be astronomical and thanks to Obama his pre-existing conditions could not be held against him nor could insurance caps be placed to deny him health care. Thanks to Trump that has all been rolled back. One has to wonder about the anxiety he feels once again as he is most likely forced into bankruptcy and must become a ward of the state to get basic health services because Trump decided that such a minimal safety net for the most vulnerable of American citizens was too costly for the insurance companies.
