Over the last two days I have met three families with young adults who also have a severe acquired brain injury. Today, I got a phone call from a young woman whose parents had a very bad car crash that left her mother.

There is nothing but huge respect you could feel for them. Their work is incredibly dedicated and meaningful. Every day they spent very long hours with their sons, every day they are fighting for their son’s welfare in a system that is telling them that they are hopeless cases.

Pádraig today went out for a walk in the part with Pat on Hamburg’s hottest day, so far. He is drinking now out of a water bottle and having a regular picnic in the park.

Happy 4th of July!
