Matt’s wife Amber has been at his side throughout and gives this update on Matt:
“The blood clot that caused the first and second stroke is still lodged in the main cerebral artery on the right side of his brain, which continually puts him at high risk of another stroke. His brain has started to develop collateral blood vessels to get blood and oxygen to the parts of his brain that are being affected by the blocked artery; however we do not know at this time if that will continue to occur and/or be sufficient. He is still immobile on his left side, with the exception of some slight movement in his left leg, which is a result of him working hard at physical therapy. He still does not have any peripheral vision in his left eye. He is attending outpatient physical therapy and occupational therapy at Jones; and has many follow up appointments with the neurology team in Rochester, his primary care physician, and an orthopedic doctor in Hornell. His recovery time has been estimated to be one year; however it is unknown at this time if he will ever fully recover.“
