I had a stroke on April 26,2022. At first my right side wouldn’t move, but now I can almost walk. I have aphasia, that means I talk nonsense. I am a bit better with writing, though not much. Thank God I can still read. That's all I can do now. I thought I'd check in .What's happened here while I've been gone?

I am glad you are improving. Strokes can be discouraging. Not many things have changed. We grow older, we lose some, we gain some, but we hang together.

My father had a minor stroke in 2021 and we've been helping him with mobility. He can still talk and walk but his overall health has changed since. You look lovely and I'm glad you're making progress. Take care.

I agree with RamaSandra. You look good for all you have been through. Mylot is mylot, never seems to change too much.

Mylot is place of peace. Too many changes aren't healthy.

I am so sorry, I wondered what happened to you. You have lost a lot of weight but you look good now.

Hospital food would do that! I don't recommend that way.

@bagarad I know that hospital food did the same to my Mom.

I have to say you look good. Virtual hugs to you and glad you have progressed so much. I will put you in my prayers. Nothing much in my life just writing online as usual and taking care of my two cats Ringo and Morticia. Many blessings to you,

I pray you'll be able to soon. At least you can write what you want to say but that isn't always easy as I have found out here on Mylot.

great job on not letting it keep you down. Keep working on improving. A friend from church would not take the physical therapy to help him get going again and is now bedridden. It is so sad. he's a dear friend.

I'm glad you're improving! I'm sorry about the aphasia, that's got to be frustrating.

Believe me, it is. That makes my comments much shorter now than they used be.

@bagarad I imagine so. It's still nice to be able to communicate with you, even if it's not how you want it to be.

Do you think your bout of covid had anything to do with your stroke? And will you be able to get back to your writing career? Wishing you all the best.

Very sorry to hear about your stroke, and it explains your absense quite a bit. But it seems like you are pulling through like a true trooper. Glad to hear things are getting better for you and you are making progress. Great to see you here.
