Everybody Has Their Own "Stuff"

Two years ago today, I had a stroke. 


I am thankful for the fact that I don't get up every morning and say, "Really? This happened to me?" and wait until I can go to bed that evening.

I am thankful for the fact that I can talk and write. (that was really hard)

I am thankful for the fact that I don't have to use a wheelchair any more and I can walk, without my AFO. (brace on my right leg)

I am thankful for my right arm getting better.

I am getting better! Everyday. There are so many who don't get better.

What happened to me was shocking, and I got a little press (The Oregonian newspaper article on me) but EVERYBODY has their own "stuff" to deal with!

I want to thank my family, neighbors (who saved my life!), friends and "friends", and whoever else that has prayed for me, supported me, helped me through this tough time.

Thank you!
