Today I am a 3 year STROKE SURVIVOR!
Thank you to my WONDERFUL husband Jeff, my two sons Chase & Alex, and all my family and friends for lending me their strength, both mentally & physically, when mine was lacking!
I know some people, after surviving a tragic event, like a heart attack or a stroke, go on to want to do all these daredevil-type things thinking, “Heck I survived ____! I can survive anything!” I’m not one of those.
My sister sent me the link to this video showing extreme mountain biking knowing that I was learning to ride my recumbent trike and enjoying it.
She jokingly asked if I was “ready to go?” My response after watching: “HELL NO!”
I woke up this morning and realized that today is my 2 year stroke anniversary. My husband and I were talking about how different this year has been compared to last year. I am truly amazed at how much I have accomplished.
While I try not to dwell on my stroke, I think such an important anniversary deserves to be celebrated.
