He’s undergoing physical therapy at an undisclosed rehab facility. “He’s talking well” the doctor reports.

“He’s aware of everything going on,” and the doctor says Bret’s blood vessels are completely normal and “in general he takes very good care of himself.”

And, “He has no higher risk of having a repeat hemorrhage.”

Doctors will re-examine him in two week intervals. And doctors expect that it will take seven to ten more days before the blood clot will be completely dissolved. “And he will begin to be on the mend and continue activities,” Zabramski said.
