Deborah's Story


Deborah Waldrop’s stroke came out of the blue. "I was in good shape, playing tennis or walking five miles a day." She was admitted to a Baylor Scott & White Medical Center with a brain bleed that resulted in her left side being paralyzed. "I couldn’t even sit up." Her first sign of progress was when she could wiggle her toes. That’s when her husband started searching for rehab facilities and found a clear winner: Baylor Scott & White Institute for Rehabilitation. "We were impressed by their comprehensive therapy approaches and individualized attention." Deborah made excellent progress at Baylor Scott & White Institute for Rehabilitation – Frisco, completing rehabilitation in about six weeks. "They gave me a big send-off, complete with tears of joy." Today, Deborah is functioning well. "I’m working on my agility, so I can get back on the tennis court."
