  2. Willis I would say this room have caused me the most tear episodes. It also has given such glee in those simple things accomplished. Its also been moment of laughter at myself too. I use to be so embarrassed but have found the humour in my predicaments being stubborn to ask for assistance. I also had the chair and have had to set it up again a couple of times since. We have also in stalled tub grab devices that are there all the time and suction mounted bar in several locations. Suction mounted are a just for momentary holding. I do not trust them. We are also discussing getting rid of the tub and just having a walking shower with a seat. Lots of grab bar installed. Just coming off a weak spell again and reading your post is uplifting. So thanks.
  3. George Lesley my filters for social interaction have left. I must be reminded quite often that I'm in public. Today I visited with a cousin who recently had several strokes. My filter left me and she shook her head and chuckled. Her nurse that day it was nice to see her smile. Not that I planned to comment like that. I know better but it just happens. I certainly hope I don't offend or hurt someone for my actions or words.
  4. When I was in the ICU never though about anything. I could function but do not recall anything. The family did capture moments in writing or photography. I look back and can't believe I was hooked up to machine like that. My one fear was going to the bathroom. I had a catheter at the first. Again wasn't aware of it and wasn't eating. When I got strong enough and started eating was worried. Turned into a battle for my dignity and normal human function so the nurse put it. They have ways and they used them on me. So so embarrassed. I thought what a way to live. I was 3 months learning how to go to the bathroom myself without any aid. I still have days where I need son or wife to help me but for the most part I can do this on my own. At the time I thought I would never be able to look after myself.

    Thanks Paul. I find all these different side effects are interesting. I still can't believe my vision has improved. I no longer need reading glasses to drive. I can get away with cheater ones now at the drug store. I wonder at confusion is that an age thing or stroke thing.

    Thanks Will2, gives great understanding. So surprised at surgery that caused so many strokes. I never really even heard of a stroke till I had this one.

    I go, but this memory of mine makes it frustrating. Thought it was my system. Logged in and out several times. Only to later realize that this chat is not hosted anymore like it shows.
  14. I haven't seen anyone come in here. I have had a few chats here but for the most part Host Sally is a no show.
