Well hopefully it will be possible to visit Terry in about 6 months, if the projected lockdown easing schedule, goes to plan,
I know I'd like to visit him if I could, We've not had a chinwag in a long long time.

The brain is an amazing thing and often makes amazing recoveries. Look at Jerry Garcia, after his coma. He had to completely relearn to play the guitar. Chet Baker had to relearn the trumpet after a vicious beating - took him 8 years, but he got there. Baby steps.

Recovering from a traumatic brain injury (TBI) takes a LONG time. And it isn't just a matter of the brain reaching one point and stopping healing, the brain will continue to improve slowly over time. The process is incredibly frustrating for the individual involved because they know what they used to be able to do and can't do it now (or not very well). At this point his body has healed, and now the work can really start on the brain part of it.

That said, if friends who are musicians visit him, don't avoid the music because Terry can't perform perfectly now. Gently offer to include it as part of the visit because he used to love it and may find another avenue to being musical again. Share a new song you're learning, sing acapella, etc. And who knows, those pathways in the brain may help him improve more once they are triggered.

My best friend here in Texas was a pedestrian in a parking lot hit by a young woman driving into the space way too fast - Susie was thrown a distance and landed on her head and also had a shattered hip. She has come back a very long way (this happened 9 years ago and she spent 4 months in the hospital and rehab), and it has involved treating not just her physical health but her mental health because it was frustrating to not be able to do things. She is an artist and the fine motor skills have gradually returned to some degree. Not like before, but she can do some of it.

The biggest problem she has, as does another friend who suffered a TBI when he was in college (he's nearly 60 now) is that she loses things. All. Of. The. Time. Short term memory sucks. We tried setting up a system with bright colored bowls on the counter where she would leave her hearing aid and her car keys (yes, she can drive and made sure she could pass the driving test before she renewed her license) but the family didn't pay attention when they came through and the bowl ended up moved or hidden or used for something else. If there is a plan to help then everyone needs to be on board with it.

I haven't seen my friend since the COVID stuff started last. I need to give her back the cane she loaned me for my recovery from knee surgery last year at this time. After deciding her house was too much work she lived with family for a while, and last year she moved to a senior apartment where she lives independently but eats in a communal setting. It sounds like Terry is in a similar situation, so during COVID visits are rare and precious. Don't try to cram in the music as part of the visit, maybe share a favorite song or CD or file for his computer along with flowers or a food gift. A year out from that injury is still early days for him and his friends can help him (please listen to what he asks for - don't assume anything - he will know what he wants and needs now).

Sad to hear the latest update. Terry was one of the few Mudcatters I've been able to meet and chat to a couple of times in person.
At least he is well cared for.

Re Terry Silver, Leadfingers :

Moira Craig :
Hi Sally, Terry has basically recovered well although his fine motor skills are not great and he isn't playing his instruments now. He has little or no interest in music now and his memory is not great due to the brain damage from the accident.. He is living in a sheltered accommodation apartment in Newark near his brother and sister in law. They say he seems settled and happy enough but he doesn't use his phone or laptop much as he gets confused about how to use it. It's very sad when you consider he was out nearly every night before the accident. Xx

Moira just put up a post on f/b about his condition: Moira's post on Terry.

Essentially: He's moving into an assisted living flat where he will have to do some things for himself; he still can't use the computer; he's somewhat divorced from reality and happy to let people do things for him.

Liz the Squeak here

Last I heard (end of May) he was doing well, but has some memory issues. He can't remember how to get onto his laptop, and his family don't know either. He is improving slowly, but it will be a long time before he's fully fit.

Latest from his Facebook page a couple of days ago, posted by one of his relatives:
Terry is still in JR. He is making some progress and will be transferred to Hillingdon when he finishes the latest course of antibiotics for a spinal infection. It's going to be a long haul for him.
(JR = John Radcliffe Infirmary, Oxford.)

The info I was given was that Terry's clutch went and by the time the car stopped not all of the back was clear of lane 1. The only thing Terry could have done was to stand over the barrier, but maybe he was assessing the problem and the lorry came by pretty much immediately. He managed to get out of the car safely, obviously. No mean feat given the circumstances.

Any news of the banjo?

So-called "smart" motorways are an invention of the Devil and a serious misnomer; but the account of Terry's accident implies a normal motorway with a proper hard shoulder where people should be safe from passing vehicles, unless a driver strays into the shoulder.
