It was one year ago yesterday that my husband Steve had a major stroke. One year ago today that they told us that he had a 3% chance to live. I just have to say that Steve is a miracle. I have never seen so many pray and come to our side. It was in a meeting with the Neurosurgeon, after the priest and preacher came to pray for Steve, that we had results of an MRI that gave us new hope. The doctors realized that Steve had less brain damage than they thought. The meeting we were having was to decide how to let him pass, but then here came news of an MRI (that the doctor had already said we didn't need because it was too late, some how it got ordered, thank God) and our prayers were answered. Thank you to all our family and friends for all your help and prayers because Steve is doing so well. Steve has excelled so quickly for the severity of the stroke he endured. He is a fighter and won't give up! After going to Canada for 6 weeks for a speech program and seeing others far worse than Steve, I feel blessed to have a miracle of a husband, my true love.
OK I'm a dork but I love Valentines Day. I am a hopeless romantic and I realize how lucky I am to have a handsome hunk of a hubby and a wonderful family. My short blogs are all I can muster but I hope to eventually stay on task for longer more informative insights. We have been hanging out with the grandkids and they are the cutest ever.
This is a blog of our daily lives and Steve's recovery following his stroke in February 2008. Steve has really come a long way. He is working on his speech and his slight paralysis on the right leg and arm. Everyday he says something new and lets us know that he is a fighter.
