Until then all you can really do is be supportive and keep him company and try and help in to not get bored, active mind, inactive body as you said!

Welcome to the forum.
If I was you. I would not tell your brother anything YET. What do you need to tell him? I am sure that in a months time the medical team will tell him more about his condition.
I am C4 incomplete. I walk. I don't think it would have down well with me if someone had ever said to me, I may not ever walk again.
Wait out and just wait and see what happens. To tell the truth, no one knows with spinal cord injuries how a patient will recover. As Colin mentioned, your brother's body is in shock. This shock could last between 4-6 weeks.
Good luck to you and your family over the next month or so. Use this website to find out as much as you can. Most of all, good luck to your brother.
