FROZEN TOBANS The NCAA Frozen Four national hockey championship is scheduled for April 9- 11 in Boston. Here’s a look at the Manitoba content: F OUR months ago, the Howe children wrote a eulogy for their dad. Today, they are writing him birthday cards, and taking him fishing. There’s also a second visit to a stem- cell clinic in Mexico on the schedule. Gordie Howe, a legend in hockey and to the Detroit Red Wings in particular, turns 87 today. Plans are to treat him to barbecue and cake — he loves sweets — and outdoors activity. In the evening, if he is up to it, he will watch on TV as the Detroit Red Wings host the Ottawa Senators. “ We’re treating every day we get with him as a bonus,” son Mark Howe told the Free Press Monday, “ just because his condition around Dec. 1 was so dire that we didn’t imagine he’d be around. You cherish every day with him, and when he has good days, you cherish that more.” Gordie Howe now spends his days puttering about the home of his daughter, Cathy Purnell, in Lubbock, Texas. “ He enjoys mucking around and being helpful,” son Murray Howe said. “ When he’s holding a broom, he’s happy as a clam. He loves to shovel and rake.” Maybe for the elder Howe, those activities stir memories of when he had his hands wrapped around a hockey stick. While dementia has robbed him of short- term memory — “ we’ll tell him it’s his birthday,” Murray Howe said, “ and five minutes later, he’ll forget” — Gordie Howe knows who he is, and who he was. “ He loves old videos of when he played with Mark and Marty, of Team Canada ’ 74, of when he scored is 545th goal to beat Rocket Richard,” Murray Howe said. “ He loves to watch that stuff. “ When he’s at physical therapy, they know he is Gordie Howe, and they love working with him and he loves playing that role of superhero.” Gordie Howe’s three- decade career spanning the NHL and World Hockey Association earned him a place among hockey’s elite. It also contributed to the state in which he has lived for the past handful of years: Dementia. Over the past year, Gordie Howe’s health deteriorated to a point it was hard to watch for Mark Howe, who like his dad is in the Hockey Hall of Fame. Gordie Howe spent most of last summer in intense pain, suffering especially from debilitating back aches. Then, on Oct. 26, after a series of mini- strokes, he had a severe stroke that left him mute and immobilized. On Dec. 1, he was rushed to hospital, where symptoms initially thought to indicate another stroke were diagnosed as being caused by dehydration. Funeral plans were made. A eulogy prepared. All that was shelved after a visit to a Tijuana- based medical clinic operated by Novastem Dec. 8 to 9. That was when Gordie Howe received a two- step injection of two types of stem cells supplied by San Diego- based Stemedica. The treatment has been such a success Murray Howe, the youngest of Gordie and Colleen Howe’s three sons and head of radiology at ProMedica Toledo Hospital, says another visit is planned in June. “ It immediately reversed the damage from the stroke,” Murray Howe said of the December injections. “ He has been examined by experts in the field of stroke, and they say it’s hard to know he had a stroke.” Asked if the treatment has affected the dementia, Murray Howe said, “ I think it does have a positive effect on a broad range of dementia, and is helpful for traumatic brain injury, which my dad has.” Gordie Howe’s dementia is unusual — it’s not Alzheimer’s, but rather, Murray Howe said, “ it’s probably vascular dementia. Look, he played 32 years without a helmet, was knocked out Lord knows how many times. The fact his dementia is so unusual in terms of how it presents, I suspect it’s a component of traumatic brain injury.” Flashback: Mid- game accident left Gordie Howe close to death in 1950 The Howe family is aware of the criticism levelled because they went to Mexico to undergo treatment unavailable in the United States. But their principle wasn’t government regulations. Their principle was their dad. “ He had nothing left to lose,” Mark Howe said. Now, Gordie Howe has regained the 30 pounds he’d lost. He’s back up to 200 pounds, his old playing weight. And he’s still an overachiever. “ He does physical therapy a few times a week,” Mark Howe said, “ and they had him in the 90th percentile of 86- year- olds. He can walk around pretty darn good. I was down there a week ago and we spent 45 minutes getting fishing gear and a license and then we went to a drug store and shopped for 45 minutes. Went back home, had a bite to eat, and then went catfishing. “ They are simple things in life, but it’s fun to spend time with Dad, and when he has his good days, you take advantage of it. When he doesn’t, you let him take his naps and let him do the best he can. When he is doing well, you can carry on a conversation. Other times, when he hasn’t slept well, his speech is slurred, and then he struggles. You just treasure the moments you do have with him.” As Gordie Howe turns 87, his family is most grateful his quality of life has improved so dramatically from where it was as he turned 86. Their dad was, and is, a proud man. Nine months ago, Mark Howe remembers how it affected his dad to not be able to hold a broom, because to the elder Howe, it meant he couldn’t be useful. Five months ago, the once powerful right winger was partially paralyzed by a stroke. Four months ago, he was almost dead. Now, every day is a celebration. — Detroit Free Press By Helene St. James Every day a celebration for Howe and family LIAM RICHARDS / THE CANADIAN PRESS FILES Mister Hockey, Gordie Howe D_ 08_ Mar- 31- 15_ FP_ 01. indd D8 3/ 30/ 15 10: 45: 26 PM ;
