from his room;
WASHINGTON (UPI) -=White
House press secretary James Brady
has ventured from his hospital room in
a wheelchair for the first time since he
was shot more than seven weeks ago,
doctors said yesterday.
Dr. Dennis O'Leary said Brady's
near-fatal brain wound "looks clean"
and there is no evidence of further air
leaks or spinal fluid leaks.
"HE'S MAKING excellent progress,"
O'Leary said. He said Brady is "in good
spirits," that he has lost a little weight
but has a "very good" appetite and that
his vision "seems to be fine."
The 40-year-old presidential
spokesman has undergone three
operations since he ;was wounded Mar-
.ch 30 during an attempt to assassinate'
President Reagan outside a
O'Leary, dean of clinical affairs, said
Brady left his room in the George
Washington University Medical Center
Tuesday night for a wheelchair ride and
began a physical therapy program
yesterday outside his hospital room for
the first time.
FOLLOWING INITIAL surgery to
remove the bullet, doctors successfully
operated a second time to plug leaks
that were allowing air and spinal fluid
to seep into the brain and a third time to
insert a sieve into his abdomen to
prevent blood clots in his leg from
reaching his heart.
Doctors are not sure how much of
Brady's feeling and movement
capability will return, but O'Leary said
the "greatest likelihood is we're going
to end up with some physical motor im-
pairment of the left side."
Movement of his left arm, O'Leary
said, "is for the most part confined to
the shoulder area and on the basis of the.
type of injury we would expect the left
arm to be the area of potential greatest
O'Leary said there also was some
possibility that Brady would not regain
all his "finel' motor control" over his
toes and feet but doctors hoped he
would be able to walk with a cane.
Exotic Big Mac
I F YOU'RE TIRED of eating the same old 'beef' hamburgers, there
is an entire spectrum of alternatives open to you. Why not break the
monotony of constant McDonald's lunches and cookouts at home with a nice,
juicy Hippoburger, Lionburger, or Camelburger? Czimer Foods, Inc. of
Lockport, Ill. specializes in such exotic meats, selling as much as five tons of
exotic animal meat weekly to the nation's discriminating diners. How about
a nice ostrich roast or steak at $14.95 a pound? Sure, the price is $2 more than
a year ago, but what hasn't gone up? Camel cookouts are becoming popular,
with a roast and camelburger goin for $5.95 a pound and a steak for $7.95.
The price has not changed in a yer. The business is headed by Art Czimer
and his two brothers, Rudy, 08, and Rich, 66. Their Hungarian father opened
a butcher shop in Chicago in 1914 and exotic meats became a specialty after
World War II. Ostrich is their slowest seller. There's less to an ostrich than
about anything else," says Czimer. "The thighs are all you can use from
them. Their body is just a cage. But now and then somebody wants ostrich
and we have 'em. "Camel sells pretty well, but a camel's hump being one of
the world's greatest delicacies is hogwash. There's no meat in it - just a big
lump of hard fat.
