[QUOTE=DisneyMom5;48326790]He has issues with coordination and clarity of speech, and it takes him longer to process. Because of the processing issues, he is taking longer to get reading down.
But, he's a bright, funny kid...he isn't as impaired as people think he is by the way he walks and talks.[/QU

I can't imagine the severity of the TBI and how scared you must have been. The road to recovery is a long one; all in all, it sounds like he is doing great, considering all he has had to overcome! And I am sure Mom was a big part of that success

Okay I know someone said they thought free dining would be offered sep/oct/nov/dec but after the free dining was released this week for sep I have been seeing people saying they thought it would only be offered for sep and oct? Has anyone else seen / heard anything? Do y'all think I still have a chance for FD for nov 29- dec 7?? I know anything is possible but what are y'all's opinion? Thanks in advance!!!!

I think all of us Disney lovers have a very unique bond. There's nothing like it.
OH...SOOOOOO thankful for your recovery. Awesome.

So far everyone says to make your adrs so when fd comes out you will have everything you want ahead of time. Is it necessary to let the cms know when fd comes out the you made your ress.under no dining plan, do they have to change anything. I hope this makes sense to someone
It will not matter one bit, UNLESS you are making an ADR for which you have to pre-pay. In that case, you just call back for that ADR (number in hand) and have them adjust that to the dining plan once you book the dining.

For the record...the new version of the WDW site never asked me if I had the dining plan.

We try really hard to be! We homeschool and do therapy and just all around treat him like a normal kid. Whew. I am just thankful we still have him!

Thank you to everyone for the well wishes. Everything is great now.

And I totally sing along with the hold music. I'm always afraid I'm gonna get busted by a laughing CM.

I'm still tearing up as I type.
That's probably one of the most romantic things I have ever heard! Tear jerking, but still romantic
Edit: I was thinking it was just your MIL's room.

Thanksgiving is Nov 28. Holiday weeks are usually blacked out from discount offers. Anything's possible though. Good Luck!

But it isn't the week of its the week after. From what I've read it's the 3 rd slowest week out of the year so wonder if that makes a difference. I thought someone told me they thought maybe there was a chance of them offering it that week but I may have misunderstood them. Thanks!

Our family's first WDW trip was Feb. '04.
We stayed at the FW cabins, it was awesome and we knew we'd be back someday.
That May, a live tree limb broke off of a big tree in our yard and hit my then 2.5 yo ds, causing a traumatic brain injury.
I lived with ds in the hospital for 9 weeks as he relearned how to move, talk, walk...everything...while dh and my parents cared for the other kids.
Besides our faith, the thing that got DH and I through is we'd look at each other and say "when this is over...we'll go back to WDW."
Over and over we'd promise each other that.
We tried to book a trip in Feb. '05 but dh's job was shaky and we couldn't.
Months roll by, and something comes out that will make it possible for us to go back...yep, the first time they offered free dining!
We went Aug. '05, and stayed at Pop Century, and when I walked into that lobby, I started crying, because it was SO DISNEY.
And I knew at that moment that everything would be ok, and we'd survived, and we were AT WDW!
DS still had issues, and still does to this day, but on that trip, a year after he was released from the hospital, a year after re-learning to walk, he RAN to hug Woody at a meet and greet.

WDW is our happy place, and I'm not ashamed to say it.
And now I'm crying again.

You are all good people...you know that?


WOW what story. I wanted to send you a hug and let you know that those with TBI's are much more capable than people think. About 11 years ago my husband (didn't know him at the time) was driving home from work. Another car drove by and shot up his car (just a wrong place wrong time situation) causing a bullet to go into his head. He still has the bullet lodged in there (surround by scar tissue), but it resulted in the limited use of his right side. Well flash forward eleven years later and he is married with a son (step but if you ask him he is totally his) and has a college degree and works for the government. And he is the SMARTEST man I know. He is very sharp even though he is quiet around others he notices everything. So we don't ride most rides (but I'm ok with that) and the parks make him tired and his legs swollen. But he refuses to get an ECV or a wheelchair. Gotta love him and his determination.
