Deans' stroke musings

Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all the trillions and trillions of neurons that DIE each day because there are NO effective hyperacute therapies besides tPA(only 12% effective). I have 493 posts on hyperacute therapy, enough for researchers to spend decades proving them out. These are my personal ideas and blog on stroke rehabilitation and stroke research. Do not attempt any of these without checking with your medical provider. Unless you join me in agitating, when you need these therapies they won't be there.

What this blog is for:

Shortly after getting out of the hospital and getting NO information on the process or protocols of stroke rehabilitation and recovery I started searching on the internet and found that no other survivor received useful information. This is an attempt to cover all stroke rehabilitation information that should be readily available to survivors so they can talk with informed knowledge to their medical staff. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.

Ribeye steak

Had dinner at a steak and seafood place with the singles from one of my meetup groups. One of the friends suggested asking the chef to cut the steak into strips. Great idea, worked quite well. I brought my Ulu knife but didn't have to use it. This was the first steak I've had post stroke. We spent 3 hours in rapt conversations, the insults directed my way were mild tonight.  I even managed to look rather dapper with a zipper tie.

  1. Now that's a milestone!! Good for you! I look like a "cave man" cutting my steak. its not pretty, and my husband likes to play me fun at my grasp of the knife....but I'm damn happy I can cut it myself....I had a lot of "practice" cutting food, my son was 2 when I had my stroke. Cutting food into tiny pieces was a big part of my rehab.
