Peter and Marge Ostroushko are facing major challenges and need our help. As 2017 drew to a close, Peter suffered a heart attack that necessitated quadruple bypass surgery. Recovery seemed to be going well until three weeks later, when Peter had a devastating stroke while in his doctor’s office. The stroke trauma team worked quickly, but Peter is still facing a long road to recovery. 

Peter has significant weakness on his left side, which affects his arm and leg, limiting his mobility. Insurance paid for 100 days in a good rehab center with occupational, physical, and speech therapy daily. He had hoped to go home, but that was not in the cards. He’s now in assisted living, with its nursing and aid support, which he needs and which insurance doesn’t pay for.

So, from here on out, those costs fall to Peter and Marge. He’ll continue to seek out additional rehabilitation services for PT and OT. He is doing some walking, about 75 steps per session, with the help of a walker and a physical therapist. Slow but steady. Though his body has taken some hard blows, Peter's determination, wit, and humor remain in good form.

While Peter and Marge focus their energies on the demands of recovery, many friends and fans of this gifted music-maker are pulling for them wholeheartedly and want to help. A GoFundMe site set up on their behalf is one way we can all help. The medical and rehabilitation costs not covered by insurance are steadily accruing.

Thank you to everyone for your thoughts, prayers, and words of encouragement, and for any financial assistance you are able to provide through this GoFundMe site. Peter and Marge are tremendously grateful for your support and friendship.
