My son has a close and fun relationship with his grandfather, who we see often. Recently Grampy had a severe stroke. Now when we visit, my son doesn't want to stay in the same room with him. When I questioned him about it, he said he wanted his old Grampy back. I've tried to explain the situation to my son, but it hasn't improved his reactions. I can see that both of them are hurt by the lack of a relationship. What can I do to improve this situation?
