Patient of the Day: Leo
Leo transferred to RMVN from our emergency department last Thursday because he was unable to walk. This may seem like a common problem with neurology patients, but Leo is a little different than our average disk extrusion. Dr. Lane diagnosed Leo with an infarction on the right side of his brain. An infarction is similar to a stroke in people. Recovery takes time, but Leo has recovered amazingly! Thursday he couldn’t even sit up straight and today he walked outside on his own and tried to play with another patient.
