Strokes life change

Hello my name is Coral , 60 year old male . I in 2019 March suffered my first of 2 strokes . After a visit to ER i was released an able to go home same day! A month later my second stroke both early morning pre work day my second happened on April 1st this time I was in hospital for about a week or 2 for daily testing followed by therapy! . Came home and we both feel lucky an blessed that my physical ability has been effected on my whole right side loss of feeling from fingers to my toes. But still have my positive outlook that it could be worst .I say life has changed my ice hockey game was something i loved to play but i am fine with putting away the gear an start enjoying more family home time with my wife an grandkids. Grampy is still a Grampy an i thrive on waking up tomorrow to face my daily fatigue and daily drops of things i forget if i have things in my right hand an need to focus on holding things an tell my self you have something in my hand . Frustration sometimes but NOTHING can be done to physically fix this so i keep jumping over these small issues and think i could be effected more an i tell myself shut up ! An do something that makes me smile.  I say stay positive and keep moving forward enjoy my friends and family an just be me CORAL ! I can walk / i love to talk with people . I trust and believe in my wife ! And my doctors ! Thank you all an be yourself ! Coral being Coral !

    I think your positive attitude is wonderful! With it you have won half the battle.   We could all take a lesson from you. You'll be surprised how each month , then each year, brings improvement and change.  Hang in there. And keep that smile on your face!  Love, Jeanne ( 2yrs 2 mos. after stroke-- still improving!)
