10 Gdlesburg ReQister-Moil, Golesburg, HI, Soturdoy, Oct. 12, 1963 THE DOCTOR SAYS Stroke Rehabilitation Takes Time, Patience By WAYNE Q. BRANDS!AD1. M.D. Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Many strokes are being prevented today through the recognition of little strokes and through X-ray pictures of the blood vessel pattern in the brain. But what of those persons in whom a major stroke does occur? This is no longer a hopeless situation thanks to new surgical techniques and rehabilitation. The first thing the doctor must do is to pinpoint the area involved. The symptoms produced vary from sudden paralysis to deafness or blindness and they give a pretty accurate clue to the location of the damage but they do not tell whether the cause was a hemorrhage or an obstruction due to a clot or the narrowing of a hardened artery. The use of a variety of X-ray techniques, but especially of a harmless opaque dye solves this problem. Since different causes require different treatments this step is essential. The brain tissue can withstand having the oxygen sup* ply from the blood shut off for only a few minutes before permanent damage to its delicate cells occurs. By lowering the body temperature from 98.6 degrees down to 82 degrees the surgeon is able to work on the brain longer than he could if the normal body temperature were main tained, and still avoid brain damage. The surgeon may remove a clot, repair an occluded vessel in the neck or provide it with a bypass or he may stop a hemorrhage. These operations save many lives that would otherwise be lost. When the stroke is due to an occluded vessel in the neck, complete recovery often takes place while the victim is still on the operating table. For those whose recovery is slower, rehabilitation is often possible. In order to accomplish the best results, this should be started as soon as the emergency aspects of the treatment are completed. In rehabilitation a nurse specially trained in this field is a key person. She sees to it that the victim's position is shifted at frequent intervals. This helps to prevent pressure ulcers or bedsores. She also moves paralyzed limbs so that the joints do not stiffen. As soon as the victim is able to make any voluntary movements of his fingers or toes, a series of graduated exercises is given. No victim is permitted to loaf or feel sorry for himself because as soon as this occurs he is doomed to a life of complete dependency.

"Now learn to play the piano," he commanded. The small boy faithfully practiced fingering exercises on his make-believe piano, then went on to become a skilled performer on a real piano in a settlement house near his home in South Philadelphia. At 16, Buddy had to quit school. His mother and father were ill, his older brother was in the service. Buddy got a $60 a week job as accompanist for a strip-tease dancer. "It was very exciting work at that age," he recalled, "but the job only lasted a week." Greco drifted from job to job. He toured the world for two years as singer-pianist-arranger for Benny Goodman's band. He wrote more than two score songs of his own. Then he organized his own cocktail lounge trio, singing sentimental songs while accompanying himself on the piano. Over a 17-year period Buddy figures he sang in some 500 cocktail lounges. "I knew I had talent, but I wasn't getting anywhere," he recalled. "I become cocky and bitter, and I hated the world." In 1958, his frustrated hunger for recognition led to an emotional collapse. Greco lost his voice for six months. One night he was playing in a club in Chicago and Dajii Crayne, a film actress, came in with her father. "I took one look at her and knew that was it," he said. "She is a rare human being. She gave me back my self-confidence. She calmed me down. She made a new world for me." Soon after they were married, Dani also gave him seven words of wifely advice which helped change Buddy's whole career. Dani advised him, "sing like yourself." Until then, Buddy had been doing his singing seated at the piano. Dani suggested, "Stand up and sing." He's been standing up and singing like himself ever since, and in three years he has become one of the top performers on the nation's supper club circuit. Before Dani came into his life Buddy was lucky to earn $15,000 a year. Last year he made better than $250,000, and this year he is sure to top that.
