    Hello again and thank you for the welcome! To answer the qustions asked: I have been doing PT so that they can make sure tht my gait and sense of balance are OK. I initially had a slight drag with my left leg when walking, but that started to improve in the hospital and is bascially gone now. I am doing ST just so they can assess how my thinking and memory are - so far, no issues there. And I am doing OT because I have some effect on my left hand, mostly with my grip (I drop things). That is coming along great as well. I can tie my shoe laces now! The hand is deinitely the greatest effect from the stroke, but it is something that I deal with and people don't even notice. I have been told many times that I do not look like someone who recently had a stroke. I am thankful that I am doing so well! They decided against surgery on the blockage when I was in the hospital. One reason is that the scans show that another artery is compensating for the blocked one. I see a cardiologist soon to talk about options. I don't know how I feel about balancing the risk of surgery vs no surgery.....anyone have any thoughts/experiences? MJS1966 - I am also viewing my stroke as a second chance / gift and motivation to chart a new ansd healthier path in life!
  2. Hello from Columus Ohio ! I am new here. I had a stroke on my 52nd birthday - December 23, 2018. I am home recovering after spending a week in the hospital. I have also been doing outpatient rehab/physical therapy. I consider myself very fortunate because I don't have any seriously debilitating effects from the stroke. I do have a 100% blockage in my right carotid artery, though. Kris
