I've got some time to kill, I'll continue if no one minds...

At this point,I'm documenting what I've been told happened with some 'snapshot' memories included.

I'm told I was posting on Facebook that night to calm down family who were excited about the event. I've seen the posts but this will be part of my memory that is lost to me.

Off to the OR, I'm...

Good Place To Start

Posted by Onehandcan in Onehandcan's Blog, 02 May 2015 - - - - - - · 46 views

It's been a long time since I've visited the Strokeboard. No excuses, I just haven't, but this morning I ran across the following quote and thought it was a good place to start the weekend...to start and finish any day!

“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms — to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circum...

aftermath of the rain event

Posted by HostSue in Sue's Sentiments, 01 May 2015 - - - - - - · 38 views

The rains continues to fall on my part of the coast. There was a two hour let up this afternoon so I scraped together piles of leaves and small branches to dispose of later. There is always something to keep us busy isn't there? There was the sound of chainsaws and grinders as people are slowly clearing the fallen trees from their properties. It is a s...

Weighing In

Just updating from my last blog ......We went out to Red Lobster the Sunday following our anniversary since our son, Dan, had given us a gift card and it's always been a favorite place for us to celebrate our anniversary. I had a small meal - grilled shrimp and chicken with rice pilaf, and I ate Gary's salad that came with his huge meal with lobster and...

Here at last in Tennessee

Posted by GeorgeLesley in Gizmo, Gadget Guy, 26 April 2015 - - - - - - · 51 views

Sorry for the long gap in postings, life has been busy to say the least. The saying goes that old age is not for sissies. I can now say that moving across country is not for sissies either. As previously posted we were planning to move from MN to TN. The move is now done, new to us house and all furniture shipped and accounted for.

Nearly finished with t...

Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment for Stroke Patients

Posted by RonA in RonA's Blog, 22 April 2015 - - - - - - · 57 views

I wonder if any of you have experience with or knowledge of hyperbaric oxygen treatment, or HBOT, for stroke patients. I have run across a fair amount of information about it and though usually cynical about such things I have become quite interested. It involves putting patients in pressurized chambers and having them breathe pure oxygen for 90 minutes p...

Doc Said He Would Be Lion Hearted

Posted by SassyBetsy in SassyBetsy's Blog, 17 April 2015 - - - - - - · 68 views

Are there still knights in shining armor? I went to my doc appointment today with so much fear and apprehension and yes a bitter disappointed disillusioned heart dragging along behind me. I lost one pound so hey yay the appointed started off right (snicker here) and so I go in telling the nurse the mile long list of things--the referrals that didn't go...

Six Months Later...

Posted by Punch1021 in Punch1021's Blog, 15 April 2015 - - - - - - · 81 views

April 11 made six months since I had my last stroke. I cried so much just thinking about last year. I haven't cried like that since I was in the hospital. I thought I had healed some mentally but nope. The wounds of last year are still fresh. My ex told me I am still recovering. Only decent thing they have said to me. I have been in denial about my own re...

Was thinking the other day, ya ya I'm deep ;-)

Posted by myhome in Stu's Blog, 11 April 2015 - - - - - - · 84 views

I was thinking about my stroke the other day, and how I wasn't really scared while it was happening. I know that's a strange thing to say but it's true. Sitting in my office at work having supper while my wife while the stroke onset was happening (and I wasn't scared) while I felt my body starting to shut down. I was thinking just how much this was going...

Day 1 (it's really 36 hours)

My Memphis adventure did not start well. Woke up to two inches of "slurpee" which I had to drive in to get to the train station - a trip that would normally take about an hour wound up being an hour and a half. Finally made it to the station with five minutes to spare only to find out the train was running a half hour late....

Busy Week

Posted by lwisman in Lin's Musings, 04 April 2015 - - - - - - · 44 views

It has been a busy week.

The April Newsletter (http://www.strokenet.../2015/april.htm ) was published (via email) on Wednesday. The week before it comes out is always very busy. During March two of our contributors resigned (both claiming health reasons). So I put together a page on positions open. If anyone reading this is interested here i...

hi all, I went to a book discussion group tonite. the book was catcher in the rye and this is the second meeting of the group. I usually have a bit to say about the book in question and I particularly liked this book.
so during my second or third comment what I was going to say was gone. this has of course happened before I admitted that it was gone and...

To my family and friends who've been following my progress here, I'm sorry for the long gap between my posts regarding my fatigue issues an reporting on my sleep study results. I had hoped to resolve sleeping problems before posting, but, that will most likely be yet another long while.

The good news is, the sleep study showed that I do NOT have many o...
