I'm going to check out the link you posted, read and print the article. Thanks.
I might add that from what I've seen in friends of mine who have had a major medical setback, i.e. stroke - they recover! They have a more positive attitude. They are more willing to work hard at the PT. Their whole outlook is admirable. I've seen this very recently in my friend's husband who had a stroke at age 75 in September. No one thought he'd be able to walk on his own. He has some difficulties with his life side yet, i.e. she cuts his meat for him for instance. BUT he is very mobile. We all went out to dinner over the weekend to celebrate his b-day. As my friend, his wife said, 'it's a miracle.' Yet it is, but it's also the power of positive thinking and a man who kept himself active. He walked. Rode his bike. Took care of the lawn. He was ready and willing to do anything.
Another friend's husband had a stroke 3 weeks after the 75 yr old. This man is 58. Again, always ate healthy. Rarely ate red meat. Big walkers (he and wife) - Volksmarchers. He's doing well also.
I can't help but think their lifestyles played a major role in their recoveries and in the quickness of their recoveries. Talk about inspiration!
