The therapist tells us patient cannot reason or understand due to middle cerebral artery being blocked, causing a right brain stroke. Within one week, could read cards, draw a circle, square etc. on dry erase board when asked. Could communicate by board to check battery in car at home, by drawing which car and then battery to the side. Has also drawn motorhome, with windows, basement doors and the tow dolly behind. He has only began to speak few words. Moves left leg some, nothing with left arm as yet. It has been one week and 4 days. Was in ICU for 6 days. My question: Would the fact he is "really" ambidextrous attribute to his remarkable mental ability? If so, how to convince therapist where they will not allow a easy ride in rehab. He is very smart and sneaky. Thank for the ambidextrous advise, could not locate that issue being discussed anywhere.
