Dom's Progress

Home » News » Dom's Progress

We have received a brief update on Dom's progress, following his dreadful stroke in early May.

Friends who have visited Dom at the Amersham Neuro-rehabilitation Unit, report that they have seen a big difference in him, with clear improvements. He is talking a great deal more now and, with an improving swallow reflex, he is now eating a lot of yogurt (but would much prefer Steak & Chips!!)

His physiotherapy continues, and the muscle strength on his weaker side is improving significantly. He is working very dilgently on his own exercises, with leg lifts and grip strength activities. He has taken on board the Physio's key message: "no pain, no gain" and is very determined to regain as much of his former capabilities as he possibly can.

Cards and Messages
As mentioned previous, Gemma (a Haddenham resident who works in Amersham hospital) has kindly offered to deliver cards or written messages to Dom. Please let us know if you would like us to put you in contact with her.

If you know Dom well, and wish to send him an audio-message, this can be achieved quite easily. Many modern mobile phones will allow you to record and save an audio-file. If you forward this to the editor of this website, he will ensure that Dom gets to hear your greeting. Alternatively, attach your mp3 file to an email and send it to this website and we will be happy to assist.
