Just an update
It’s been some six plus months since my stroke and it’s definitely a struggle for me. Much more so than my episode three years ago. Still. I arise every morning, thankful for another day with the hope it will be better than yesterday but not as good tomorrow will be!
On September 11 I suffered a stroke. This took me out of commission for five + weeks – which were spent mostly in El Camino Hospital’s Rehabilitation center!
Now I am getting therapy at home, which will last about another week. Then, hopefully, it’s on to out-patient therapy – for I don’t know how long…
Since both my right and let side are effected it’s not easy to type so I need to look at something else to accomplish what I want – “The Dragon” maybe…
Strokes are a major life changing event. Every year, more than 795,000 people in the United States have a stroke and some 130,000 Americans each year will die — that’s 1 out of every 19 deaths. http://www.cdc.gov/stroke/facts.htm
The Holiday Season – not a nice time to be ‘under the weather’ so to speak.
