Patients go to Astros game to assist with rehab
Lewis Reyna is 52 years old and an Astros baseball game is his biggest motivator and opponent.
Reyna had a stroke a week and a half ago. He's already out to the ballgame because Quinton Mease Hospital pushes patients to get comfortable in real life situations as soon as possible.
"Working on skills such as walking, walking in crowds, walking on uneven surfaces," recreational therapist, Amy Parker, Harris Health System said.
Wednesday seven people are on their first public outing since being confined to a wheelchair or walker. Some of these patients are exhausted just going into the gift shop.
"Some of these patients have been in a bed so their endurance is really, really low," Parker said.
For every person, bump and high reach is a new adjustment.
Even as an advanced patient, Reyna feels frustration from the exercise.
"You can't do it anymore, it's pretty hard but I have encouragement from family and friends, from these people that I met and it's so needed you know?" Reyna said.
He says it's needed because even as he manuevers through Minute Maid less than two weeks after his stroke, he's got his mind made up on walking through here again someday.
"Even if I could ever get 100 percent use of my body, I'll never forget people like this, organizations like this that help people," he said.
Harris Health System says this exercise is possibly through the Astros' charity tickets.
They say every year the team gives them enough tickets to bring patients to a few games.
