Strokes suck!

Hi.  I'm Laurrie.  In 2013 I had both an ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke on August 1st.  Here that is why my doc gave me pills to take for HB a year earlier.....I didn't  know HB can cause a stroke!  Heck, I didn't really know what a stroke is.  It left me effected on my right side.

I am the step mother of three, mother of one and grandmother of nine.  Very active in work and church as well as very crafty and simply love to cook/bake.  As I said, I had my stroke in 2013 and my youngest son in 2-a-days for football ready to start his senior year.  My son told me, "You will walk me across that football field with Dad!"  There was my motovation.

I learned how to walk again (not great, but I can walk) and sure enough I walked across that football field with them!  Since than; I strove to be independent.  Though I quit work; I cook a full course meal everyday, do laundry, fold it, drive and clean house. 

Grant it, I have my days of "whoo me", though the way I look at it, there are people who are worse off than myself.
