Danny Wuerffel Recovering, Undergoing Rehab For Guillain-Barre Syndrome

Former Florida quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Danny Wuerffel continues his recovery from Guillain-Barre Syndrome and has started rehab. Wuerffel released a statement on his website on Tuesday to assure his fans that things are going well:

As I move into the second month of my battle with Guillain Barre, I’m finally starting to feel more like a person and less like a patient. And I’m getting stronger.

Wuerffel is undergoing rehab for the effects of muscle loss associated with the condition. As we have seen previously, Wuerffel continues to be upbeat during this trying time and has kept a sense of humor:

(for all you folks who think now is the time to finally beat me at something, you better hurry up cause I’m coming back strong, baby! :)

Wuerffel also provides some sage advice about waiting. He can't rush his recovery, but waiting for it will build strength in him to endure it.
