My 25 yo son acquired an Anoxic Brain injury after he cardiac arrest from a Heart ailment. The Rehab MD said it will take 18 months for the brain to heal and reword pathways. The first 6 months he had very bad short term memory. He went to speech therapy 3 times a week for 4 months. It slowly got better. We worked with him everyday
After a year it was better. Now it's 18 months and he is doing better
He will always Probaly have some challenges with short term memory
But you have to find strstegies to help. Write things down daily in a calendar, use your phone with messages etc. Rehab will help develop these strategies God Bless that your dad is found do well. From what I have researched he is one of the few good outcomes. Stay positive
