Here at last in Tennessee

Posted by GeorgeLesley in Gizmo, Gadget Guy, 26 April 2015 - - - - - - · 18 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...

as some people know I have taken inspiration from Steve and wanted to share my insight on the lack of information for Women's sexuality after stroke awareness as well of the lack of information for the medical community when dealing with younger persons who enter the ER who are disregarded of possible stroke signs for stress or anxiety instead.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment for Stroke Patients

Posted by RonA in RonA's Blog, 22 April 2015 - - - - - - · 39 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...

We are having flooding all up and down the coastal area where I live. There has been loss of life further up in the Hunter Region but here is is all nuisance flooding. Natural disasters bring out the best in people and in our area many people are helping their neighbours and maybe meeting them for the first time. I am lucky, so far little damage apart...

Spring Is In Full Swing

I have spent some time outside in the yard trying to get my St Augustine grass growing and green again and the tree in my front yard too is green again... So as I stand and look at that I feel pretty good that I accomplished something even in my condition and using a scooter to get around and do all I do with very little help...

Doc Said He Would Be Lion Hearted

Posted by SassyBetsy in SassyBetsy's Blog, 17 April 2015 - - - - - - · 61 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...

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 - - - - - - · 83 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 - - - - - - · 39 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...

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...
