2 Praying for you, Brick.  Do what the docs say.  We'll be waiting for you.

5 Brick, you're not allowed! Please be healthier soon.

8 Thoughts and prayers sent your way, in a manner not requiring lifting heavy boxes.

9 Get off artificial breathing as soon as you can when you come around. A close friend of mine started recovering from stroke and succumbed to a ventilator-caused infection. You can do better!

10 Also! My brother in law had a stroke 20 years ago and is doing well today! You can do it too!

11 Best wishes added to everyone else's. Good luck!

12 No, no, no, no!   Ah, dammit.  Hang in there.

13 Oh hell no! Not another one! Please be okay!

14 Oh, crud. Hope you are better by now.
Sounds like you caught it fast. They can do a lot for you.

15 What they all said. Prayers for a full, and fast, recovery!

16 Get well soon!

17 Obviously everyone, if anybody hears anything, please share it minus any real details. Those are up to Brick to release.
I've been digging and have come up blank except for his Indeed page (out of date).  Let's hope he either contacts one of us or his family does.

Posted by: Wonderduck at Fri Aug 6 18:43:14 2021 (bHHXR)

18 Of course, Wonderduck.  Hope you're doing better now too.

19 Still working on walking. Minor in comparison to what Brick's got going on.

Posted by: Wonderduck at Sat Aug 7 03:37:48 2021 (bHHXR)

20 Brickmuppet!  That's...  Good news, I guess.  Sorry to see another friend in rehab hell.

Posted by: Pixy Misa at Sat Aug 7 08:47:02 2021 (PiXy!)

21 I panicked just now because the damn server went down again and we might have missed hearing from you.

Posted by: Pixy Misa at Sat Aug 7 08:50:45 2021 (PiXy!)

22 Yay, Brickmuppet! I am sure that they will do you some therapy, but there are lots of good tricks and workarounds.
Feel free to do crazy stuff, like forming letters with your ankles and toes, or your tongue. Singing is also good. Use your opposite hand or both hands. Basically, do not exhaust your body or brain, but play with the controls a bit and stimulate it a tad. It will help rewire your brain around bad stuff.
Foreign languages can help, too. Yup, get them to prescribe anime or WWII documentaries.
And yay, Wonderduck! Glad you are better.

23 Oh, and videogames. Drawing videogames, Tetris, whatever. Just short easy casual games until you get stronger, probably, but I bet they will have you do some.

Posted by: Suburbanbanshee at Sat Aug 7 12:42:33 2021 (sF8WE)

24 Obviously, if it is "just" peripheral weakness of hands, feet, etc., that is easier to get back than when people can't access/forget their skills. But there are tons of exercises and helps, either way.
You are a persistent guy. You can do it.

25 Best wishes for as full a recovery as possible!

Posted by: DougO at Sat Aug 7 13:28:58 2021 (kqK5x)

26 Good to hear from you, Brick. Hang in there!

Posted by: Avatar_exADV at Sat Aug 7 14:18:51 2021 (v29Tn)

27 Best wishes for your recovery!
