Deans' stroke musings
Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all thetrillions and trillions of neuronsthateach daybecause there areeffective 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.

Trees down everywhere
With a wind advisory yesterday of up to 60 MPH when I went for my walk in the woods almost all my efforts over the last months to get trails cleared for easy walking were for naught. Was out there until 8pm in darkness with the headlamp. It wasn't bright and clear enough so I didn't notice lots of small branches on the trail until I walked on them. But I did get in 14,000 steps. The previous day I had a deer on the trail 20 yards in front of me. I kept walking, she just moved to the side and I passed within 6 feet of her. Trying to change the focus on smartphone cameras is impossible one-handed unless I am sitting down, that is why I can't get a better picture of the deer. My stroke was before I had a smartphone so no ADL training on that.
