POST STROKE RECOVERY, My dad Manuel, is looking so much better since his major stroke in Dec.2015. It's been a few long months, for someone who's so very active, not to mention totally independent, and self-motivated. He's still got a lot to do, in getting his health back on track, BUT HE'S ALIVE and with us. This is the kind of man, who is hard to keep down, he's been a doer all his life, when he had his stroke, IT STOPPED HIM DEAD IN HIS TRACKS. Some of you ARE COMPLETELY AGAINST MODERN MEDICINE. but let me say this, IN CASES OF TRAUMA EMERGENCIES.... IT SAVES LIVES. Because of NEW #STROKE medications and procedures, my dad's life was saved, and his recovery has been nothing short of a miracle. From the time his wife called 911and rescue got him to the ER, and I got there, the window of time needed to administer the stroke medication, was all we had, just under 30 minutes and his chance was closing, the ER doctors at Hilo Medical Center - Emergency Room WERE OUTSTANDING.... they made it happen. From being completely paralyzed on his right side of his body, not able to speak or understand, to within 15 minutes of medication administration to moving his rt side, blinking, trying to talk and his mouth and eyes slightly returning to normal. IT WAS REALLY ONE OF THE MOST SCARIEST MOMENTS OF MY LIFE. I'm forever grateful to everyone who's helped us from the ER staff, to ICU staff and the Hilo Veteran's Center staff, WHO'VE BEEN BEYOND CARING AND JUST AMAZING. I love my dad, more than words... there's so much more for him to live for, not just living but thriving, and seeing him here is priceless... it just makes me believe that what I do on a daily basis can change people lives... DON'T WAIT TILL IT'S TOO LATE... #STROKES #HEARATTACKS #DIABETES are all medical conditions that can be prevented or at least controlled by the life choices we make... LISTEN TO YOUR BODY, LISTEN TO YOUR HEART, LISTEN TO YOUR INNER VOICE THAT'S TELLING YOU IT'S TIME TO CHANGE.
