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.

Blood everywhere

Last night in trying to get my 10,000 steps in I walked the usual trails. I had cleared most of large branches overhanging one section with one huge branch still left at head height to be cleared the coming weekend. I walked past just fine, on the way back I was doing the head down looking at feet thing and solidly hit my head on the branch. No cap on so I split my bald skull open. Immediately blood starts running down my forehead, no hankerchief so I start using leaves to staunch the flow. After 10 minutes and no stopping I finally just plastered a leaf on my head and pulled the cap over it to keep it in place.  Only managed 8745 steps since I needed to pick up a pizza and go to a friends house to watch season 6 of Game of Thrones. Lots of blood there in the Battle of the Bastards.
Blood on glasses but not in eyes

  1. DEAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ARE YOU OK????????????

    1. Of course, this just means I'm alive, to be able to bleed like that.

  2. Wow - you really got whacked by that tree branch. Hope it is nothing more a blood loss and some transient pain.
