This is a sad/happy post. We were sad to learn earlier this week that Tom Beattie had suffered a severe stroke last Saturday. He was rushed to NVRH and then flown to Burlington where he was in ICU, unable to speak or move his right side. The happy news is that he has steadily improved, regaining movement and is now able to speak and recognize people. Today he will be moved to Mt. Ascutney Hospital in Windsor for rehabilitation. Pretty amazing considering the severity of his condition over the weekend.
We are glad Tom has made such a strong comeback and wish him a very speedy and full recovery. He's in good hands and has lots of friends and family rooting for him.
Tom will be at Mt. Ascutney Rehab for at least six weeks,
and I'm sure he would appreciate hearing from friends, so send messages
and cards to him at: Mt. Ascutney Hospital Rehabilitation Unit, 289 County Rd., Windsor VT 05089.
