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.

La Basilica church in Quito Ecuador

This church has wonderful animals for its' rain gargoyles; dolphins, armadillos, anteaters, Komodo dragons, pumas, monkeys, penguins, tortoises, and condors.
This blogger has pictures of the ladders you need to climb and descend to get to the views. Getting up wasn't much of a problem, coming down was one step at a time and hanging on for dear life with my good hand, steps were only 2.5 inches wide and the back edge of the lower step lined up with the front edge of the step above it, that gives you an idea of the steepness. I was able to climb foot over foot on the way up by grabbing the chicken wire between the steps.

My pictures from the top.
 Way in the distance at the top of the hill is the statue of Virgen de Quito (Madonna of Quito), largest aluminum sculpture in the world.
 This is the tower we climbed, if you look real closely you can see people climbing the left support. When we saw those people we knew we had to climb it ourselves, only cost $2.
