Does the confusion get better with time or might this be the permanent damage?

Hi! My husband, 42, had a hemorrhagic stroke. He was on a ventilator, feeding tube, etc. He had a permanent shunt inserted into his brain which I guess would stay in there forever??

He is doing well now; still in a care facility. It seems as if he can do everything on his own physically. Cognitively we will probably only be able to determine later on?

I am anxious about when he comes home; I have a daughter of 9 and a baby of 17 months... I am worried that it might traumatize them even further.

How long does post-traumatic amnesia last?

My friend was in a motorcycle accident 2 weeks ago and was in a coma for 2 days. He has diffuse axonal brain injury and is dealing with post-traumatic amnesia. He has moments where he knows what's going on and moments where he's very confused. He remembers things before the accident but has no short term memory right now. Just looking for some insight into how long this stage has lasted for others. Thank you.
