I truly appreciate your answer, however, until you do the neuro-psych exam, you never really know. Not all brain damage is obvious. I know someone who has had three MRI's that confirmed brain damage, yet this same child (in Grade 7), got two A's on his last report card, and is the fastest at math in his class.

Incidentally, according to Blake's father, there was tissue damage.
