My Happy Stroke - Not

One of my doctors at MGH said right after the stroke, "in nine months, it will be a bad dream."

So it's been about nine months.

Even without the insomnia, the iron problems, the seizure, and other littler problems, I think the doctor was overly optimistic. I still have a good prognosis (I hope), but the time scale was way off.

It's like climbing a mountain, with a lot of false peaks. The more I feel like my old self, the more I realize how far I have to go.


  1. As I commemt to friends, I used to be able(possibly) to climb to the top of Everest but fell all the way down to the bottom of the Marianis Trench. I am currently treading water(figuratively) and will work my way up that mountain again. One step at a time. Go Grace.

  2. Thanks, Dean, for the encouragement.

    As for the bowling, in New England we have Candlepin bowling. I bet it's great for stroke survivors!
