Hello,I am so sorry Numayr was injured. It is possible he has a concussion or a neurological problem. It is a good sign that his breathing has improved.The only thing you can do at home is make him comfortable and give his little body time to recover. Place him on a soft surface like a pillow in a darkened room. Do not feed him anything until he comes around.You can apply warm compresses to his back and legs. Make a warm pack by adding raw rice to a sock. Tie off the top and warm in the microwave or use a heating pad. He should get better with rest and quiet.Please write back and let me know how he is doing.Please be so kind as to rate my answer with positive feedback; that is the only way I receive credit for my assistance. Thank you very much!Providing a positive rating will not end our conversation, should you need me for any follow-up. Simply click 'Reply' for clarification or additional information, if needed, at no additional charge.Best wishes and prayers for him,Terri
