Monday morning in New Mexico

This is an update on my recovery from the January 16th car accident after having DBS surgery last June. I encountered a return of my symptoms a few days after the accident. In February, I had the flu for over 10 days. Once I was over the flu I started exercising again at Munson Senior Center. I saw my Parkinson's specialist in early March. Dr. Jill gave me a "DBS makeover. She reprogrammed the electricity from the Impulse Generator. She also gave me a referral for PhysicL Therapy and Speech Therapy to help on swallowing.

I can report I have notice some improvement the last 2 weeks. Still a llong way from before accident but the exercise and therapy are helping in my recovery.
