100 things you probably don't know about me.

Posted by in Steve's Blog, 09 March 2005 - * * * * * · 507 views

Do we REALLY know each other?

I challenge other Stroke Network bloggers to make a list on their blog of 100 things we do not know about you!

1. I had a rare type of Brain Stem stroke on the Pons. It caused quadriplegia and loss of speech. My stroke happened in France while I was on a business trip. This occurred over 20 years ago in 1994.

Where do the memories go when they leave?

Posted by scottm in scottm's Blog, 05 July 2015 - - - - - - · 23 views

I'm left to wonder where my memory went? Short term memory we all have issues with, but long term should be relatively intact. At least that was what they told me in rehab. The really creepy thing is you don't even know your memory is gone because that whole time period was wiped clean, no clues exist , just an empty canvas you don't know about either.. I...

My Last Post

Posted by LadyRose in LadyRose's Blog, 04 July 2015 - - - - - - · 22 views

I've made the decision to discontinue this blog for a couple of reasons:

I no longer have the energy for it.
My state of mind has drastically plummeted since starting this; initially, I thought/believed that I would "recover" more of my former self and abilities and that my posts would reflect a more positive reporting of and including a steady in...

Lauren has made his final transition

Posted by djs202 in djs202's Blog, 04 July 2015 - - - - - - · 35 views
end of life

Such a long/short journey. After a year and a half in the nursing home, Lauren developed a bowel obstruction and was transferred to the hospital on Monday, June 22. Though we originally planned emergency surgery to correct the obstruction, he began to fail pretty rapidly and we decided to cancel the already highly risky surgery. I became convinced there w...

I had a heart attack Christmas day, 2009, went to hospital, and two days later had a triple bypass. The operation was messy and involved a lot of bleeding, resulting in the surgeon having...

Trying to Keep Up

Posted by RonA in Venting, 25 June 2015 - - - - - - · 64 views

I have learned a lot since my wife had a stroke 20 months ago. I've learned to care for her, to modify things in our house, to find new gadgets and devices to help her be more comfortable and independent. Those are the good things I've learned. The not-so-good thing is that people who treat stroke patients are a very fragmented group whose members don't...

Feeling Good

I just finished my 3rd short story about my time in the rehabilitation center-" My Stroke and The Journey Back The Third Leg of The Journey". It is a Kindle ebook on Amazon. If you are a caregiver or someone you know is having difficulties with their disability, I hope sharing my experience can help.

Living Alone The Joys of Work and living life.

For a month or so I have been living by myself. I am alone at home with just myself and my animals and I love it. Well there is the exception that my home has some ceiling leaks but that's another long story. I don't have anyone living with me anymore because I can now take care of myself after having two strokes. Nope I am alone now because I am no...

Birthday Trip - Las Vegas

Posted by srademacher in spacie1's Blog, 18 June 2015 - - - - - - · 40 views

We just got back from our trip to Las Vegas. We went for ours and Kelly's birthdays and had a fun time. We left on Saturday with a stop in Flagstaff to grab a couple yogurts, then Kelly drove until we stopped just outside Kingman, AZ where we had lunch at a truck stop. The truck stop experience could have ruined our whole trip, but I refused to let it do...

3. I was born 7 weeks premature,

Who am I? A blog from many years ago.

Posted by HostSue in Sue's Sentiments, 16 June 2015 - - - - - - · 49 views

As Steve is reviving "100 things you didn't know about me" I went back and found this old blog of mine called "Who am I?" which was a challenge from a member who was very active at that time called Susan Lowe. It is another way of putting together a list about yourself. Mine has a genealogical flavour (so I am a complex person...lol) and I thought I would...

The Cat's Meow

Posted by Onehandcan in Onehandcan's Blog, 15 June 2015 - - - - - - · 35 views

It's been three months since my grief stricken post about losing my cat, Rocky. I miss her dearly and thought long and hard about whether or not to adopt another cat. Caring for a pet can get complicated for a stroke survivor. Adding more challenges to an already challenged life is cause for pause, for sure. The prospect of, again, changing a litter b...

This was the first vacation that I have taken in 6 years. Since William had his stroke. I took off Monday morning and came back Wed niight. It was short and it was exciting.
