Judson Gordon is a young, hardworking, loving father. On the 6th of Jan Judson turned 26 he should of been celebrating his birthday but instead Judson had a horrible accident he fall from a ladder and hit his head on the concrete. Judson was found unconscious on the ground by his best friend his best friend called 00. The ambulances stabilised him then drove him to the football grounds to meet the helicopter from there Judson was air flown to the Royal Melbourne hospital where he went for head scans to see what damage was done from there he was put into a induced coma to let his brain heal the doctors came and spoke to me they told me that Judson head injury's were severe he had multiple fractures to the base of his skull and was bleeding on the brain. Judson was in a coma for 14 days in ICU while Judson was in a coma he was put on life support to help him breath. While in ICU Judson was being watched 24/7 by the nurses and doctors within the first hour of Judson being in ICU he had to undergo surgery so they could control and monitor the pressure in his brain. While Judson was in a coma the doctors were unsure of what Judson neurological injures were going to be they didn't know if his injury would affect his ability to function as before the accident. On the 14 Judson started to come out of his coma the nurses told me to talk to him so i did. on the 16th Judson was slowly coming out of his coma and starting to breath on his own the doctors decided to take his life support out and move him into a neurological ward where he slowly woke up more and more he was still being watched 24/7 by nursers but he was doing good. on the 17th Judson was was awake he was very confused. Judson was talking walking and eatting by himself by the end of his stay at the neurological ward the doctors made the choices for Judson to go to acquired brain injury rehabilitation centre where he would have to under go speech therapy, physio therapy and occupational therapy. on the 5th of Feb Judson got to go out for the day i brought his son down and we went out to the zoo for the day it was the first time since the accident Judson was allowed to go out him and Desmond had a ball. Judson has full Custody of his beautiful 6 boy. on the 9th of Feb after Judson had passed all his assessments he was allowed to come home to us. Judson is know an out patient but he still has a long way to go before he is 100% better.
