Hi Everyone – Thanks for your posts & your suggestions for ways to assist and entertain Chris. It’s great to know so many people have his interest at heart.
Chris was in good shape today & I took him outside for a stroll in a wheelchair. This was his first time outside since the stroke. We went a reasonable distance and Chris particularly enjoyed the (ahem) rather rapid downhill part – I asked him once what vehicle summed up his personality and his reply was ‘Messerschmidt’, which is pretty fair.
Then I had lunch with him and shared his horror at the hospital food. A microwaved vege lasagne was the solution.
Indictators for Chris seem to be quite positive at the moment & we still notice a daily improvement – which, just over two weeks from the stroke, is a very good sign. But it is really a time for hard work and seeing what happens over time.
