GBS (Guillain-Barre Syndrome) Update


  IMG_2805In the past four months I have spent my time either in a Hospital or a Rehabilitation Center. In an earlier post I detailed the results of Guillain-Barre Syndrome (see link at end of Post).   Most of the four months I struggled with weakness in all four of my limbs and my entire body.. The diagnosis for GBS (Guillain-Barre Syndrome) is positive if you give a great deal of energy into hard work and consistent focus towards strengthening your body. This could take a year.

IMG_2886Thus far I feel fortunate as my arms and legs have improved in strength. I started walking with a walker in late March. Recently the walking has improved to the point I was discharged to my home!

I will be continuing in out patient therapy through the summer. I am expected to work at home with workouts on a whole list of activities. I am improving but the weakness is still in my legs and arms.  I also have a ways to go in having adequate strength in my entire body.


What this all means for me and the Cabin Garden? I will likely not be able to be actively involved in care taking our garden. in this summer of 2015.   We are still not sure what we will decide to do regarding working the garden.  ???

In an earlier post I described some alternative options. Your thoughts and ideas are welcome.  (website details Guillain-Barre Syndrome)
