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.

Joni Mitchell makes first public appearance since brain aneurysm

This seems to be factually wrong, or it could be wrong on purpose - stroke having such a negative connotation. An aneurysm is a balooned artery in the brain, normally does not cause any problems unless it bursts, then it is called a hemorrhage, the type of stroke that occurs 15% of the time. Our stroke association presidents should be contacting this reporter to correct this. But then I may be totally wrong on this although the sudden collapse would seem to indicate a stroke rather than the aneurysm pressing on important areas.

Joni Mitchell has made her first public appearance since suffering a brain aneurysm last year.

The Canadian singer-songwriter has been recovering since she was hospitalized after collapsing at her home in March, 2015, and has not made any other public appearances since.

But in an encouraging sign, the Big Yellow Taxi musician, 72, attended jazz fusion pioneer Chick Correa's concert at the Catalina Bar and Grill in Los Angeles, California on Saturday.

A photograph of Joni sitting and smiling alongside friends at the gig was posted on her official website on Sunday, which was captioned, "We are thrilled to see Joni out and about again! Last night she attended a Chick Corea concert at the Catalina Bar and Grill in Los Angeles."

The aneurysm left the folk star in need of extensive rehabilitation and it took months for her to be able to talk and walk again.

Details about Joni's health have been few and far between since her collapse, but in October last year folk singer Judy Collins, a longtime friend, revealed she was making progress.

"I have just heard from a close mutual friend that Joni is walking, talking, painting some, doing much rehab every day, and making good progress," Judy posted on Facebook."I have another friend who went through something similar - it does take a long time."
