Hi there. My name is***** to hear that Simon is unwell. I will do my best to help with your question. First I have a few questions to help me better understand your situation. Is Simon willing to stand up on his own or does he require a lot of support. Does he appear to be able to see you or does he appear blind? Does he appear aware of his surroundings?
