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.

Walks in the woods

I've been trying to catch up clearing the walking trails through the 124 acre natural area near me. Traveling this past summer for work really set me back. The waist high weeds and grasses obliterated some of the trails.  The grass scythe mostly worked except that I lost the trail several times and wandered through the woods trying to pick the trail up again. The GPS on the phone was pretty useless, you don't walk fast enough to update very often. But the phone compass and dead reckoning worked pretty well. The only time it didn't work was the hour I spent after dusk trying to find my way out switching from the flashlight to the GPS to make sure I was heading south. Luckily the phone battery had enough juice to finally get me to a trail I recognized.  All this is to help me get 10,000 steps per day and in winter use it for cross-country skiing. My electric chainsaw is not working and I haven't screwed up the courage yet to use my gas one, so small pruning saws are used to clear limbs from the trail.
