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.
