How to help your child cope with the after effects of a traumatic accident?


My 12 year old son was in a school bus crash just under 2 weeks ago. His counselor will start coming to visit next week, but in the meantime he is having nightmares, is restless because he can barely walk, (he had his leg broken in two places and had 2 surgeries and his "good" leg is also still banged up). Summer is starting and this is an active kid and now that it's sinking in he has teary eyes and he is so bored. He's tired of books, games, knitting, writing, drawing etc. and we are facing months of this ahead. Any ideas how to ease the stress and monotony?
