Friday night my brother was in a bad car accident and broke his femur, ankle and thumb, along with a couple of torn ligaments. His girlfriend was in the car as well and has a broken leg and had bleeding into her spleen. My brother will be home from the hospital at the end of the week most likely and I was wondering if anyone on here has some experience with getting the house ready for someone in his condition? Unfortunately his bedroom and both showers are upstairs, so we moved his bed downstairs into the living room and put a curtain up so he'd have privacy. I'd imagine he'll have to do a sponge bath type deal in the downstairs bathroom for a while since there's no shower down there and he can't get up the stairs.
I just bought him an ipad so he can facetime with his girlfriend. They live about 30 mins apart and neither will be able to drive for probably 4-6 months so they wont be able to see each other very often. Any other ideas as to what can make him more comfortable? He's had some pretty bad luck in life, with 2 surgeries to remove a brain tumor along with radiation treatment, an exploding appendix, broken wrist and now this, so I have no problem spoiling the shit out of him to help him get through this. Any advice is appreciated.
