Stu Shiffman Update 1/3

There’s new progress in Stu Shiffman’s recovery from the stroke he had in June. Despite a setback near the end of 2012 that required treatment in the Neurological ICU at HarborviewMedicalCenter, Tom Whitmore reports at CaringBridge he’s now back at Seattle Medical and Rehabilitation:

He’s in the same room, and they even left his drawings up on the walls. It’s definitely the right place for him, and he’s been doing so well that they’re going to increase the time he spends doing therapy, and work toward more abilities. Andi’s really pleased with the staff and the care there — they are always willing to take the time to give her a full explanation of what’s going on.

The ground that Stu had lost with the difficulty with the shunt (which is why he went back to Harborview) has all been regained. All the medical people are very impressed with how much he’s gained over the last month or so.

It’s a pleasure to hear that Stu is gaining ground.
