Mr. Lingo

After a long week at work, it was finally Friday evening. Mr. Lingo works as an oil field operations supervisor, and he was ready for a nice, relaxing weekend. But as Friday evening progressed, Mr. Lingo realized something wasn't right. Be began to stumble and fall when he tried to walk. Mr. Lingo called his son to come to his house and help. When his son arrived, he noticed his father couldn't move the left side of his body. Recognizing the seriousness of the matter, he rushed his father to Ochiltree County Hospital in Perryton, TX.

In the emergency room, doctors ran tests on Mr. Lingo. The tests confirmed that he suffered a stroke. After five days, Mr. Lingo's doctors recommended he transfer to an inpatient rehabilitation hospital. At a rehab hospital, Mr. Lingo would receive the therapy he needed to regain his independence. A trusted friend recommended Vibra Rehabilitation Hospital of Amarillo. Mr. Lingo agreed and transferred to Vibra.

Mr. Lingo and the interdisciplinary team got to work on his first day at Vibra. His goal was to be independent again, living life as he did before the stroke. Four weeks of hard work later, he has nearly achieved that goal. Mr. Lingo credits Monica C. for pushing him every day. Even if he was tired and wanted to call it a day, Monica encouraged him to put in the hard work. Mr. Lingo looks forward to returning home and to work, as well as fishing and spending time with his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
