      Hi Sue,

      I DO remember HostSue! Thanks for your kind message.  The pandemic has motivated me to reach out to friends, family( old and new) The Strokenetwork was mostly,for me, a positive oasis while dealing with stroke challenges so I have returned to my roots and hopefully offer what I was given in the beginnings 

      Sorry for your loss.  You sound strong and confident having having a few years into this new chapter in your life.  Hope you are managing well during the pandemic.



  2. Please stop to say Hi! I have been away for some time have stayed in touch via Facebook,Twitter, Pinterest.

    Hi, i remember wanting to call in sick for work and casually saying that I would off sick for about a week. I was set on returning to work even 6 months after my stroke I was in rehab for 3 months just learning walk. It was only when my employee insurance rep came to visit that I realized that I would not be going back to work at all.
