Wow humbled,blessed,and amazed

Posted by Jayallen in Jayallen's Blog amazing days, 21 October 2016 - * * * * * · 325 views

Yesterday the volunteer organization at the hospital decided to pay for my bus pass for the next 3 months wow it's not a lot of money but when you have no money it's huge.
Today when I stop for my morning coffee I threw my couple dollars and exact change on the counter and the barista said wait wait wait I thought maybe the prices gone up and he said nope...

Gearing Up!

Posted by lwisman in Lin's Musings, 28 October 2016 - - - - - - · 5 views

It is fall and we are headed into winter. So it is time to get stuff done before the weather gets nasty. Nothing like making a doctor’s appointment and then be faced by snow!

This week I saw a neurosurgeon. I had not seen one seen one since 1998. In 1998 I was told me I no longer needed a neurosurgeon. He (who did my surgery) has probably retired, and I...

40th anniversity celebration

Posted by Jayallen in Jayallen's Blog amazing days, 28 October 2016 - - - - - - · 27 views

Wow what an amazing event.
It was so good to so many former co-workers, so many hugs.
A special acknowledgement, from the Executive Director.
One of a few that saw me in the hospital.
"So Glad you could make it and we all miss you."

I had to fight back the tears, once again so blessed and humbled.

How Many Years People Been Having Strokes????

Posted by fking in fking's Blog, 27 October 2016 - - - - - - · 20 views

I could probably look it up someplace but this way I will probably get more answers!!!!!!!!!

I am my parents 18th and last child and no one in the family ever suffered a stroke as they all had to work hard in the fields farming different crops each year to help our father make a living so all of us could eat and buy a few clothes to wear.... It was a bit...

One Year Reunion

Posted by stockflyer in Stockflyer's Blog of Success, 26 October 2016 - - - - - - · 110 views


The hospital where I went when I had my stroke and spent a couple weeks on the rehab floor had their annual rehab "party". I thought it may be a little lame but it was really nice. I didn't see any who was there when I was as a patient but I got to see a lot of the nurses, aids, doctors. I think they like to see how far everyone had come. It must...

Spring is a challenging time of the year

Posted by HostSue in Sue's Sentiments, 24 October 2016 - - - - - - · 62 views

For those that don't know I have stepped down from hosting Caregiver Chat. I was a chat host for eleven years but four years out from Ray's passing I thought it time to step down. I do miss it and think fondly of all the many people who over the years I have chatted to. A few of them are on my Facebook page so I do see what they are doing, but on Faceb...

ripping joy of life when I m stepping out of my comfort zone

Posted by achandra in achandra's Blog, 23 October 2016 - - - - - - · 50 views

Twelve years ago in 2004 when I suffered stroke at age of 34 after delivering premature baby & loosing her day later & then suffering stroke day later which paralyzed on my left side fully. I thought I would never find joy in living again. It felt like with such a big loss how any one can recover from that. Though being young & having great fa...

This week was my uncle's funeral. He passed Saturday after a year long fight with Cancer and had his service and burial on Tuesday. It was a very good service and focused on my Uncle Darrell's life instead of death. The casket was closed and a beautiful afghan rested on top with some his happiest pictures blown up and placed right into the fabric of the a...

Why Do I Feel Like I'm In This Alone??

Posted by srademacher in spacie1's Blog, 11 October 2016 - - - - - - · 110 views

When we moved to Arizona four years ago, I thought we were going to have a nice small house in a quiet suburb with a pool in the back yard, where I could get out and swim while Gary napped. Because of tightened banking regulations after the Wall Street disaster, I couldn't sign for the loan using Gary's Power of Attorney, so the whole deal fell through. A...

YAY.. I AM NOT SLOW.. well kinda but not as bad

Posted by ksmith in Ksmith's Blog, 27 September 2016 - - - - - - · 461 views

Well today I got the results from my neuropsychology and I was very pleased. I’ve learned that my recovery has been very good and strong in a lot of aspects I do have some difficulties in my frontal lobes in my executive function. It’s strange because when you hear what kind of stroke I had you would assume that it will only focus on one side of my brain...

Exploring the Possibilities

Posted by Pearls in When your soul dies, 24 September 2016 - * * * * * · 363 views

Leave no stone unturned. There was a time when I was younger and without a physical disability. I always tried new things. Somewhere along the way I started to accept the status quo but if you don't try new things, you stay in the same old place. As long as you are alive you can move forward. You will not always succeed but failure is just another steppin...

Good news / bad news / confused...

Posted by scottm in scottm's Blog, 20 September 2016 - - - - - - · 462 views

I had the evaluation done today to determine my final status for the stem cell clinical trial. Bad news is I was excluded because I am too strong. They said they needed weaker subjects so they could show significant improvement. On the other hand that is good news and shows that my PT is working. When we got home I had an email from the trial doctor recom...

Lost crown on a back molar

Posted by williamharris in williamharris' Blog, 18 September 2016 - - - - - - · 404 views

This happened3 weeks ago. Our dentist was on vacation therefore the office could only put the crown back on with temporary glue. The temp job lasted three days. So we had it put on temporarily twice. Finally the dentist comes back and William refuses to go. I had to cancel the appointment. I reschedule for next week. The office wants me to buy temp g...

The Alfa is gone....

Posted by GeorgeLesley in Gizmo, Gadget Guy, 15 September 2016 - - - - - - · 56 views

Yesterday I sold my 1991 Alfa Romeo Spider convertible I once posted pics of here. It just did not fit our new much travel lifestyle. Sitting here in the garage only used a few times a year made no sense, so I sold it. I really did not feel sorrow watching it go down the driveway for the last time. Our plans now include so much travel in our motor home th...

The New Normal

Posted by Punch1021 in Punch1021's Blog, 09 September 2016 - - - - - - · 352 views

It's been some time since I have posted. I kept telling myself to do so because it's therapeutic to write what's going on. I can't bring myself to write in my diary so why not blog here. The past few months have been a blur and now I am settling back into my new normal. Whatever that may be. Nothing feels the same any more. Everything seems so differen...

Holiday time and status update

Posted by heathber in heather's Blog - Heather was here, 23 August 2016 - - - - - - · 100 views

Hi all, just a quick status update before I go off on a months holiday. I'm not expecting to have internet for most of it, and where I do it'll be on the smart phone, so not easy to do, I don't expect to be checking in here.

I'm heading off on a 3 week cruise from Sydney to Perth - over the top. Then a week in Perth before I fly home. Jade will be st...

Second time around

Posted by Strokewife in Strokewife's Blog, 05 August 2016 - - - - - - · 214 views

The silence of the night surrounds me. While it should be peaceful everything with in it is screaming out in more of a painful cry. Even still I am somber. Tears do not seem to form or fall from my face. I sit and watch my husband take each breath. The room is dark with the exception of the neon glowing lights of the heart monitor. I watch him as his...

I Can Read!

Posted by CarolR in Carol's Blog, 12 July 2016 - - - - - - · 188 views

I Can Read!

Reading has always been a huge part of my life. I read for relaxation, entertainment, knowledge or escape. Books have taken me to faraway places or distant times or just explored ideas I would not have otherwise considered. I was the kid under the covers with a book and a flashlight. School reading lists weren’t used just to choose a book f...

4th of July

Posted by ruthwilliam in ruthwilliam's Blog, 04 July 2016 - - - - - - · 138 views

Today is the 4th of July. I was going to take William to the pool. But, I am having second thoughts about that. It is very early in the morning 5AM. Yes, I am still waking up early. William has been acting up at the pool. I don't think that I want to put up with that today. I have explained to him that I do water therapy for him for his benefit and...
