I never dreamed I'd be helping my son because of a stroke
that hit him. Our lives have drastically changed. Mine from
being quite active outside the house with my camera in hand,
taking photos of towns, one by one on Cape Cod, MA.,
displaying them at shows, and getting ready to attend the
summer craft fairs . . . then following the fairs around New
England in the fall.
My son changing from being in the radio business to having
to accept the fact he'll probably never be able to work in that
industry again. He is a fighter though, and loves a challenge.
He's of course, now facing the biggest challenge of his life.
We are both from up-state New York, where the winters can
be long, hard, and cold. Now, we are in North Carolina where
you could play golf in the winter months. The weather is
ideal here, and the summer months of July & August are no
more humid then some of the summers I've seen up north.
The other months are like having "2" falls . . . one before
and one right after winter!
ABOUT THE NAME OF THIS SITE . . . Stroke After Stroke! I
know there can be many translations of this. Let me explain
how I came up with the name!
The first "Stroke" or "Stroke After" is to encourage a stroke
survivor to continue stroking forward and to NEVER give up.
Stroke after new windows to the outside world. Stroke after
new beginnings. Stroke after "steps" to new challenges.
Stroke forward toward that daily goal you set! Stroke toward
eating and exercising right! And most of all, keep stroking
after that new life after stroke.
The second "After Stroke" is the "NEW LIFE" you will become
accustomed to. With 875,000 strokes per year in the United
States alone, each one is different from the next. They are
like fingerprints. There are none the same. The survivor will
end up with their own characteristics and disabilities to deal
with. However minor or extreme they are, your old life is
gone. You must start stroking after that "new life" . . . stay
positive . . . and NEVER give up!
