On July 24, 2015 – three weeks ago today I had a stroke. I have been in acute rehab at the University of Michigan hospital until August 12th. It effected the right side of my body, and I am learning to walk and use my right arm again. They are hopeful I will make a full recovery, but I have a very long road ahead of me. I am learning to type with my left hand at the moment, and will be involved with more occupational and physical therapy as an outpatient. Not sure when I will be able to create art again, but gaining use of my right hand is more important to me than walking.
Thank you for the support and I plan to beat this! :-)
