Stroke rehab success

A stroke robbed Dave Thomas, not yet 40, of the ability to talk, swallow or even nod. During a two-month hospitalization, doctors told his wife that he might remain bedridden. “I went out looking at nursing homes,” Suzanne Thomas says. Through intensive rehabilitation and a lot of hard work, her husband not only regained the ability to speak but walked his daughter down the aisle on her wedding day. “I walked with a cane real slow,” he says, “but I got there.”
