Clayton Huyser has struggled for almost two months in a Denver hospital to recover from a rare brain disease that left him nearly dead Jan. 29. After a series of brain surgeries and removal of part of his skull, the 20-year-old Hayden native is ready to make the trip to a rehabilitation center.

Huyser, who celebrated his last birthday in the hospital room, has regained full range of motion on his right side and has started to make movements on his left as he recovers from the stroke, said his mother, Kristy Stinnett.

Huyser was admitted to the Craig Hospital’s rehabilitation program in Englewood. Stinnett said that she expects Clayton to remain in the program for six to eight weeks, but she has no idea how long Clayton’s recovery may take.

“We really don’t have any answers yet to how far he will be coming along,” she said from Denver.

The brain disorder, called arteriovenous malformation, or AVM, is an irregularly formed set of veins in the brain. In some cases, the disfiguration can cause strokes.
