…her right eye that doesn’t close all the way”
“…They will be putting a weight in the lid that will still allow her to open and close her eye still her nerves are bad on that side and if this isn’t done she could have complications or even go blind because her eye isn’t closing all the way I do need everyone to share tag do whatever is needed for her go fund me I need to move her stuff out of her apartment doctors also mention a payment for transportation waiting for a call back on that but please share the link and keep the prayers coming.”
Now, thanks to an even more recent post, we have more context about what she is going through.
Diffuse axonal injury (DAI) is a form of traumatic brain injury.
It happens when the brain rapidly shifts inside the skull as an injury is occurring.
The long connecting fibers in the brain called axons are sheared as the brain rapidly accelerates and decelerates inside the hard bone of the skull.
The most prevalent symptom of DAI is loss of consciousness.
This typically lasts six or more hours. If the DAI is mild, then people might remain conscious but display other signs of brain damage.
These symptoms can be extremely varied, as they depend upon which area of the brain has been damaged. They can include:
- disorientation or confusion
- nausea or vomiting
- drowsiness or fatigue
- trouble sleeping
- sleeping longer than normal
- loss of balance or dizziness
