Dušan has been at Regency Hospital for the past nine weeks. His condition is improving. He is breathing on his own and also speaking without the help of his tracheostomy. The first week of January, Dušan had a follow-up for his neck and spine and all are recovering wonderfully. The halo brace was taken off and Dušan will be wearing a neck brace only for the next 4-6 weeks. As far as Dušan's extremities go, there have been no changes. He can feel his arms and move them from the elbows up, while there are no changes with his legs. Dušan's doctors are looking into the next steps that need to be taken for his rehabilitation and are searching for an adequate rehabilitation center in Minneapolis to continue his recovery. - See more at: http://pomozitedusanu.org/#sthash.LqksvFLP.dpuf
Dušan was transferred to Regency Hospital Minneapolis yesterday. In this hospital he will begin early rehabilitation which will allow him to fully breathe on his own, drink fluids and eventually eat food. With the help of a special tracheostomy valve, Dušan is now able to speak on his own. Dušan's father and friends are very excited to once again hear the sound of his voice.
