Three-time Winter Olympian Steven Lee has commenced rehabilitation at Wangaratta as he continues his stroke recovery.
Lee was airlifted to Royal Melbourne Hospital last week after the major health scare at his Falls Creek home and was relocated to Wangaratta on Tuesday.
His daughter, Layla, revealed Lee had in fact suffered two major strokes and has a challenging road ahead.
"There's still no movement on his left side at all," she said.
"He has had two major strokes, so it's going to be a journey back to our new normal.

"He's still in good spirits though.
"All smiles and thumbs up when he's awake.
"We have no word on how long he'll be there for yet and what comes next, but it's still early days."
Layla is hopeful of meeting the case worker managing Lee's recovery program in the coming days.
The family has continued to provide updates on his condition via social media and have been blown away by the amount of support.
Talks have commenced with the Olympic Winter Institute to stage a fundraising campaign to assist with the recovery.
Lee represented Australia at the 1984, 1988 and 1992 Winter OIympics during his competitive career spanning 25 years.
He was the second of three Australian skiers to win gold on the Alpine World Cup circuit.
