Age and Recovery

He is in his late 40s. I believe if he had stayed in the hospital, he would be off the ventilator and making progress. At the hospital, they had a plan and were working hard every day towards his recovery. The doctor at the rehab center just lets him lie in bed and says his job is to “keep him alive”. They are not trying to wean him off the ventilator or begin any type of rehab. We are fighting to get him moved back to the hospital and are hoping the MRI results will help. We are fighting tooth and nail every day to get him help but nothing seems to work. Does anyone know of patient advocacy groups or GBS specialists who could help? We are in the Washington D.C. area.
