Japanese Encephalitis

My son was diagnosed with JE virus last July 2007. He was on coma for 4 days and he was awake, he has no vision, cannot move and  talk. And then he has difficulty in breathing and the doctors found out that there is a stenosis on his throat so they put tracheostomy. He cannot eat as well so doctors put PEG on him as well. After 4 months in the hospital, we were discharged already and now, we can see some development from him, he can hear some sounds already, can move his legs and arms but still cannot stand or sit by himself and also his eye sight has no indication of what so ever. Can you help me on what other therapy necessary to help my son on his recovery or is there an institution that can help us on his therapy and other medication needed?

I would like to emphasize the need of physiotherapy in the child. You should consult physiotherapist for further evaluation and proper exercise plan to regain his lost co-ordination.
Physiotherapist would help him in his daily routine modification and also help to avoid disuse atrophy of muscles.

Hope this helps you.
