Dear Liv 25,

When you say ‘assist him in adapting to this new condition’ you do not make it clear what the new condition is – is his arm still lame, does he still have a headache – if he does, has he been seen by a neurologist? If the lameness has persisted, the best way for you to assist him is to make sure he has a proper neurological examination as soon as possible.
