On August 21, 2017 Jack was moved from Parkland Medical Center to an acute rehab facility at Catholic Medical Center (CMC). While at CMC he began intensive PT, OT and Speech Therapy (ST) treatments. The recovery for Guillain-Barre Syndrome is a process and can take years for him to regain full strength and make a full come back. Jack has worked extremely hard while at CMC and in the first couple weeks went from being unable to walk or move his legs on his own to standing and sitting upright without falling over. Jack has continued to work hard and has made enormous improvements. He now able to walk with a walker or cane and has climbed a flight of stairs!
Since August my dad has been unable to work. Even with insurance the medical bills are tremendous. Any funds collected will go directly to his medical bills.
As of right now, the pending discharge date for my dad is October 20, 2017. If released on this date, it will make a total of 70 days in the hospital!
My mother, sister, brother and I are all extremely proud of him and all he has accomplished. He is still continuing to improve every day! Thank you all for the continued thoughts and prayers throughout this entire journey.
