When Milton White arrived at Encompass Health after suffering a stroke, he had one goal in mind: Getting back to the love of his life, Grace. The couple planned to dance together to her favorite song, "Wonderful Tonight" by Eric Clapton on their 35th wedding anniversary this summer.

With the help of his therapists and nurses, Milton was able to regain his ability to perform activities of daily living, get around better and sharpen his memory. Inspired by his progress and the caregivers who helped him, White shared a poem with the hospital before discharge. We hope you enjoy your dance, Milton. Learn more here: https://ehc.news/3wLwTG6
Outdoorsman and YouTuber Tony Engelke recently suffered a stroke and came to Encompass Health, for inpatient rehabilitation. Before his stroke, Tony spent his free time in the wilderness documenting his many adventures from the trails on his YouTube channel. "In a split second, everything changed," Tony said. Tony had a stroke and lost mobility on the right side of his body and struggled to speak. With the determination to get back to hiking and continue his videos, Tony used his YouTube channel to raise stroke awareness and document his daily life during rehabilitation.

We are proud to report that Tony rang the bell at Encompass Health signaling his discharge to return home. While Tony isn't quite ready to return to rugged overnight hiking adventures, he plans to embark on shorter adventures near his home and encourages others to do the same. "Everybody should do a random adventure," he said. "We could all use that moment of gratitude to appreciate what we're capable of. It's important to do the little things that sometimes we take for granted." Happy trails, Tony!
