Yesterday Murray had a driving assessment to see if it was safe for him to start driving again. He passed with flying colours - even a test involving using a street directory to navigate to unfamiliar locations - a test that I would fail even without a brain injury. The only recommendation they made (actually it may be a requirement not just a recommendation - I need to check that) is that he have a GPS installed in the car...just in case.
In other big Murray news his OT is very happy with his progress and feels he may be ready to graduate from rehab. The next step for him is to work with the Commonwealth Rehabilitation Service. Their role is to attempt to get him ready to return to work. He is still a long way off being ready to do his old job but the OT believes he may be able to work in a job where he has a lot of support. I don't really know how all that fits with the job he already has but it sounds like they may help him find some sort of interim work that allows for his current strengths and weaknesses and helps him build up his skills to see if he can get back to his old job.
All this excitement and he hasn't even seen his fabo Father's Day present yet (and no - it's not a GPS).
