One Day At A Time

I continue on with life, one day at a time. My goal has become this: If I wake up in the morning, I do what I can do to make it through my day, go to bed at night and hope for sleep. If I wake up the next morning, I carry through with the same goal.

There is so much awesome info to forward. If you haven't already, check it out at stroke.org. You can forward emails, facebook,


I'm fairly new to the site but anxious to learn my way around. Never have done a blog before so feel free to give me pointers. ha I had a brain stem stroke last June on Fathers Day at age 40. Was in picture perfect health. Not sure how much of my 'story' I should include. Been a roller coaster ride for sure. All we can do is take one day at a time if that's part of God's plan for us. Everyone of our friends & family (that we have left haha) should be aware of the warning signs. Take c
