The stroke is worse than we thought. Mike is looking at a 3 month inpatient rehab program, with outpatient rehab to follow. He has major deficits on his left side, especially his left hand. He is using a wheelchair to get around, which is one of the reasons he is totally hospital bound right now. He can't yet safely transfer into a car or do any sort of stairs. There is no where in the hospital where it is safe to have a visit with the little girls.
It was a disappointing day, to say the least.
Because we are in a major stroke centre, Mike is involved in a number of research
Studies on stroke patients. Here's a few pics of him in the robotics study:
