Does this mean he isn’t pushing me away?

so me and this guy were seeing eachother until he got into a major accident Since then he’s been distant and recovering. He told me doesn’t want me to wait for him and waste opportunities since he doesn’t know when he’ll get better. Well I continue to send him positive messages to support him. He hasn’t been saying much or all back. I did mention that if he doesn’t want me to say anything he can say it and I respect it. All he did was apologize and say he was very stressed. recently he told me he is very appreciative of all the wishes I send. I was just confused since he doesn’t really reply if he is pushing me away?
