taking back my birthday



Yesterday was my 3 year mark since my stroke and my 53rd birthday. Last year I just wanted to be left alone. However, this year I decided to take my birthday back. Actually, it is more of an anniversary of my rebirth. I have learned so much, and seem to be able to be more focused on what is going on around me.

I didn't have a party of any kind. Just my good friend Anne, and Teddy of course. I would rather have one close friend with me than a roomful of people who really only care for themselves.

I did get some good news today. Thanks to the help from all of you next week I will be seing my Dr and hopefully get an order for a new KAFO. Thanks again to all who gave me suggestions.

hey Doug:


wow what a coincidence to have stroke and Birthday on the same day, it does reinforce my belief that stroke is our second chance at life so we better celebrate and enjoy each moment in it.


Happy Birthday & Anniversary.
