Dave: Sorry to hear of your misfortune. We are pulling for you. Stick with the banjo - I'm sure its good therapy. It will come back - the brain sometimes will amaze you at its resourcefulness.
Good luck and keep us up dated on your progress.

Thanx every one for the kind words, Mr Wayne, Torben, and Doug. Just now, I've managed to carry this coffee I'm presently drinking, from the kitchen, to here at the computer without spilling any of it this time. A small victory, but I'll take it. Coffee spilling is something I've got now, as result my recent brain development. I usually get most of the coffee where I'm trying to place it, just have to keep a mop within reach, to keep the socks dry.
Thanx for stopping by, I'll keep your good wishes in mind while I'm at the physiotherapy gym getting phyisiotherapized.

Dave, for what it's worth, I have a friend that suffered a severe head injury as well. It involved trying to load a helicopter onto a flatbed truck, but that's another story. He was near death due to the accident, lost one eye and motor skills and speech were affected. It's been a few years now but slowly he is recovering. He went back to work and is able to drive himself to his jobs. He still has a slower speech but his sense of humor is still there and he's functioning and contributing now. Seems to continue to improve ever so slightly each time I see him.
Bottom line, hang in there, it will get better.

Thanx for sharing your buddies experience Mr David. I'm glad to hear he's getting on with things.
I'll do my best to stay away from helicopters, just in case. And, I'll "hang in there" as you suggest.
As far as the getting better with time bit, Yesterday I managed to run on an elliptical exercise device unit, at the physiotherapy gym, for 3 miles, or 4.828032 kilometres as we say up her in Canada land. I'm aiming for ten kilometres as soon as I can do it. ......... Then maybe a 1/2 to a full marathon, I could fulfill a secret fantasy by doing so. It's not banjo playing, but it might help with it.
