A little about me.....

I gotta tell ya, I don't believe in luck. I might say to some folks that They're lucky, but for the most part, I just say that to be saying something.

Ok, so a lot of people tell me that I'm lucky, but I prefer to say that I'm blessed. I was lock-in for several weeks after my stroke, just being able to move my eyes at first. Then slowly I got movement in my neck back after about 4 weeks and in my second hospital. I started getting some movement in my right hand while I was there, but didn't move my arm until I was at hospital number 3, a rehab hospital, I was there till Father's Day.

 

I slowly got movement back in my whole right arm and progressed steadily until I had full movement in my arm and partial movement in my right leg. My left leg moves slowly and the movement in my left arm is spastic. I do have foot-drop in my left foot, I am in no pain at all, I see and think just as I always have. :happydance:

 

My name is Perry Stevens, I stroked on 12/25/2000 in the morning around 8:00. :angry2:

 

I now have a service dog, a Standard Poodle named Bo, He is about 85 lbs. or so. My wife is Myra, we've been married since 1979. My 2 kids are my son Drew--28 and my daughter Bekah--25.

 

Now you're caught up on me, hope to see ya around. :rolleyes:

Perry, I have to agree with you about using the term "Lucky" when speaking about strokes and survival. I certainly feel blessed and I can guess, Lucky is used by people whom for what ever reasons may not have a ton of faith in the Lord our God!

 

When I say Lucky, it's for the same reason as you say it to others. Even if and when I win the lottery, some may say I'm Lucky, but to me I would have been blessed by God! But that's just me, I can not deny him ever!
