Even though out of the hospital, Cole goes through months of physical therapy to regain even a little use of his limbs. Cole and his mother have a heart-warming reconciliation. She apologizes for not defending Cole against his father, and she says that she has stopped drinking. Cole comments that this is the first time that she has ever really opened up to him, and the two hug. As Cole is becoming a dynamic character, it would seem that his mother has been making changes as well. I think she realizes the extent of her husband's abuse and her complacency.
