Stroke update

I can put on my own pants, now. Well, almost.

Right-handed stuff is difficult. At least, my fingers and my thumb are working -- somewhat. A couple of weeks ago I could not even move my right arm.

The biggest challenge I am facing now is learning to drive a car with a right foot that is recalcitrant and slow. It feels like someone else's body. But, one thing at a time, I suppose.

I still sound and feel retarded when I try to speak.

Perhaps recovery just takes time. I should be happy that I did not die.

I guess I am. I guess I am.
