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.

Cell phone woes at Winnipeg Folk Festival

That time of year again where a bunch of my college roommates get together.
One day our spot in the stage area was in full sun, maybe 85 degrees or so. I had my phone in my lap with the extra battery pack attached to it charging the phone back up. Fell asleep for 15 minutes or so. When I woke up the phone told me two apps had overheated and shut down. Then the notice came that the battery pack was too hot to charge the phone. Moved to a somewhat shady area and both recovered in a half hour.
Friday night walking back from the main stage to the parking lot my cell phone fell out of the holster, velcro had died. I wasn't worried about getting it back because we are in Canada and at a folk festival. It wasn't at lost and found at 10:30 the next morning but at 1:30 it showed up. At least a dozen iPhones were waiting to be reclaimed.
Got a text on Friday that I was supposed to travel back to New York by Wednesday, I was flying from Minneapolis to Lansing on Tuesday, luckily on Tuesday the date was pushed back to Thursday so at least I got some rest before being thrown back into the fray.
