Pádraig is surprising us and his therapists almost every day.

How can someone, after two years, ‘all of a sudden’ correctly answer relatively complex questions? How can he start to move and start to control his limbs?

The other day, he pushed Pat’s hand to the side as she was giving him food that was just too hot to eat? Today, he picked up a tissue and wiped his mouth  – with a bit of support and guidance, but he did it. He also pushed one of his therapists.

The thing is: you’re not supposed to start doing this such a relatively long time after your accident.

Pádraig is moving into a whole new categories, people tell us.

They don’t know and haven’t understood that Pádraig has ***always*** been in a different category. There’s nothing new here. It’s just now become visible to them:)
