Exactly 7 years ago, I spent #StrokeAwarenessDay undergoing emergency #thrombectomy for #basilar artery occlusion. #BAO

Today, I'm still in awe and celebrating how #modern #medicine saved me from locked-in syndrome and enabled me to live a normal life, against all odds.

1/ 🧵
2/ So far, I have avoided sharing this information as part of my professional life, fearing it would somehow disqualify me as a credible clinician-scientist. Finally, I realize that the experience only strengthened my resolve to give future patients the second chance I was given.
3/ What happened in brief:

I was a healthy, 25yo medical student, all excited to have finished the first 10K run of my life not even 5 hours before my family reacted #FAST and called 911.

Almost relapsed on 🥃 when passed over by the Columbus, OH @DeptVetAffairs along with other protected #Veterans. A Civilian Social Work Director bypassed all Veteran Interns serving there for 12 months for another Civilian hire. Medical Marijuana saved my life @lastprisonerprj
This was after surviving 2 deployments in Iraq, an RPG blast, being shot at through a door I was breaching and using Veteran benefits to put myself through school receiving my MSW. The VA still let a qualified and disabled veteran social worker fall through the cracks.
I decided to join National Youth Advocate Program and provided thousands of hours of assessment, therapy, resources and aftercare services impacted by sexual, physical, emotional and verbal trauma. This triggered my PTSD bad, but I fought through it to be there with my clients.

It has been an honour to walk alongside my friend & colleague of 21 years @BinitaKane & her daughter Jasmin on their courageous & inspiring journey. #LongCovid in adults children is real & serious. There are treatments available- sadly only for a fortunate few #TeamClots 1/n
(Everything I say is with the express permission of @BinitaKane). Jasmin is not the only child with #LongCovid who has been shown to have microclots & hyperactivated platelets. They are a consistent finding in kids & adults who have travelled for treatment to Germany & SA 2/n
Globally 100m are affected by this vile illness. In the U.K. alone this figure is estimated to be 1.8m, with 2/3rds reporting an adverse impact on their daily activities. 1% of primary & 2.7% of secondary school children fulfilled the criteria for #LongCovidKids 3/n

Spent more time in the garden today. Insect populations are booming! A bit of sunshine really helps to lift the spirits.

Had a run of 3 good days, but just tried doing *some* of the things my lungs had allowed me to do over the weekend & over-did it by fixing the ball-cock in the toilet cistern! Lowered my guard; lungs are tight again (first time in 10 days) & I'm lightheaded. #PulmonaryEmbolism

1/🧵 Beauty in simplicity
 
For too long in life, I thought success was about climbing in the 🌎’s eyes…higher, better, farther. My physician wife & I are “new parents” to my 58 y/o brother w #DownSyndrome & he’s giving me all kinds of new understanding of what matters.

#COVID
2/ When I come home, Greg is usually hiding from me, like you see here. He thinks so beautifully, “How can I make someone else #happy in the small things in life?”

Here he is hiding in plane sight next to our dog Butter. Look at that grin!

#Recovery
3/ Hide and Seek: He taught me that if he can’t see me, I can’t see him!

At first that seems nutty, but in truth, for me to enter “into #relationship” w you, we do need to SEE EACH OTHER, right?

So who’s teaching who here?!

Thrilled to finally share the pre-print of our study in which we propose a mechanism underlying progression to severe #COVID19 medrxiv.org/content/10.110… Here is our tweetorial! A🧵 (1/9)
Hugely important landmark studies by @VirusesImmunity, @EJohnWherry, @SetteLab, @ScottBudinger and others have proposed that immune system dysregulation is implicated in disease progression and severity. (2/9)
To look for a mechanism of immune dysregulation, we performed multiparameter immune monitoring in a tightly controlled cohort of 128 COVID–19 patients, and used the ratio of SpO2:FiO2 as a dynamic and physiologic measure of disease severity. (3/9) Image

We all ♥️ #Paris where were it took place 1st presentation of incoming French Presidency to @EESC_PRESS! #PFUE2022 @CBeaune underlined this rare & precious opportunity, highlighting France's ambition to mark progress on #EU legislation, #climate #digitalisation #socialpolicy 1/1
The red thread of #PFUE2022 would be "Recovery, Power, Belonging" (“Relance, puissance, appartenance”). France would not impose an agenda, but would serve as an accelerator for the way forward on ideas and dossiers. #EU #Europe 1/2
#Recovery”- in economic terms, after the Covid pandemic; "#Power" - in terms of #security, external relations, #defence, #migratory policy, climate; and "#Belonging" - feeling of being part of the common #European political project. 1/3

“Having a baby is one of the most amazing, miraculous, and life-altering moments of life. Yet with all the focus on the baby, it can be easy to forget that your body has just undergone a very physical+emotional experience and that it takes a while to recover+feel “normal” again” Image
“Most new moms are unaware about the toll of pregnancy on the body and the process of postpartum recovery leaves a lot of moms surprised by how intensive and lengthy the healing process can be.”

Are you an expectant mom? This thread will be helpful in your preparation.
Week 1 and 2

“The first week postpartum is the most intensive in terms of adjustment and recovery. You have just given birth, are taking care of a newborn, and may have experienced vaginal or perineum tearing (and stitches) or other delivery complications.

Welcome back, George.

Now, about that "race-to-the-bottom" slashing of #data #protections...
...which, despite fine words about "maintaining high standards", is plainly the intent of @DCMS's proposed #DataProtection 'reforms':

assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/upl…

...which include the intent to (re)define "#ScientificResearch" 🤔🤔🤔
Of course, we understand #TIGRR's "enthusiasm for #digital", its eye on the value of "highly #profitable consumer data", and frustration with the pesky #protections and #safeguards of #UKGDPR...

Le saviez vous ? #LeSaviezVousCOVID

1️⃣Oui des nouveaux anticorps monoclonaux sont disponibles dans le tt du Covid
NON il ne faut pas les prescrire à tort et à travers
Les résultats de l’essai RECOVERY doivent être d’abord publiés et ne devons suivre les recommandations #Thread
2️⃣Oui les patients immunodeprimes et non répondeurs à la vaccination doivent pouvoir accéder à des traitements soit en préventif ( prophylaxie contact) ou en curatif si l’infection est déclarée
3️⃣MAIS ne tombons pas dans l’excès inverse en donnant accès à ces traitements larga manu alors que l’étude n’est pas encore publiée et que le préprint ne montre pas une efficacité suffisante pour tous les patients 😳🙄

🔥Si vous n'avez pas pu me voir aux @JNInfectio pour la prise en charge actuelle de la COVID-19, voilà un petit thread 👇

Prise en charge en 5 axes : oxygène, kiné, anticoagulation préventive, anti-inflammatoires, antiviraux
Sans oublier les autres besoins, notamment en post réa
L'oxygénothérapie est à adapter en permanence aux besoins, des simples lunettes à O2 puis le masque à moyenne concentration, haute concentration, l'optiflow, la ventilation non invasive, l'intubation, l'ECMO.

Rôle majeur des soignants pour augmenter / diminuer selon les besoin
La kinésithérapie est un axe essentiel de la prise en charge, que ce soit la spirométrie incitative, le décubitus vigile (respirer sur le ventre quelques heures ts les jours) et l'activité physique
Je me souviens de patients qui faisaient du vélo sous optiflow, cela aide à tenir

1/🧵🎥 Hard-Won #Wisdom from the wife of a #LongCovid patient >140 days into hospitalization.

You need to hear her 2 messages:
1. “What I can tell you is I’ve never given up #hope. To make it to tomorrow, we have to make it through today first.”

HUMILITY ❤️‍🩹 IS HER MEDICINE
2/ When things are acute, like in this video of her husband when he was 1st in the ICU, we tend to think our task list is all technological. I’m guilty of this. And I’ve caused ⬆️ suffering because of my tunnel vision.

3/🎥 Point #2 from my pts wife:
“He’s not gonna get better next week or next month. #COVID takes a LONG time. Our lives are forever changed. Expect setbacks & be your loved one’s advocate!”

NOW she & he are convinced of the importance of #Vaccination & masking. Learn from them!

1/🧵🎥 “Doc, TIME is BROKEN.” ⏰ #BRAINFOG in #COVID19 is something like this stuttering second-hand on a hospital room clock with a low battery. Imagine if your brain stuttered like this! This video was taken by an ICU survivor who told me how the clock contributed to #Delirium.
2/ Now our @CIBScenter ICU survivor @SGFesquire sees how the clock not only contributed to his delirium but symbolized his brokenness & need of healing (pic w perm). Brain Fog presents as delirium when 1st sick & as cognitive impairment (memory + mental slowness) in #LongCOVID.
3/fin
Ongoing Brain Dysfunction = major suffering. Let’s be patient with #LongHaulers. They look normal & are silenced like #MECFS pts. Patients, seek help. We will help you “unbreak time.” We do this through cognitive rehabilitation tools. #recovery

Here’s a lovely piece by @stuheritage, who is constantly and tirelessly trying to innovate a way to Patch-Adams me out of my low ebb.
The weekend my husband took the kids camping, I lined up 5 binegable feel-good movies on Netflix, then cleared off the sofa, and spent the entire weekend wondering why I couldn’t bring myself to sit down. Depression-anxiety-ADHD-bereavement-breakdown. Do not recommend.
Bingeable*. Also, I would like to clarify, GLAMPING.
