For anyone interested I thought that I would give a little public post about my current life situation... Exactly 18 months ago I fell out of my bed and found myself laying on the floor and I couldn't move, but I tried. I was eventually able to reach up and grab my phone from the nightstand, and I called a few folks, but I couldn't really talk... I just crocked "help me, help me!" The EMTs finally showed up Sunday night, but it took them a while to figure out that I was in here, and they were actually going to leave, but someone told them that I was in here. So they broke down my front door, came in, turned the corner into my bedroom, as I looked up at them and said "hello".
I was taken to Glendale Adventist Hopital, where I spent around 6 weeks there. I ended up having a serious stroke on July 16th, 2017, and have been here back at home since August 23rd, 2017.
To me, it has most definitely been the worst thing that has ever happened to me, especially physically.
I continue to go to speech and physical therapy...and I keep getting a little bit better each day. It's just a VERY slow process. I know that I don't get many texts nor calls anymore, and I totally understand that...everyone has their own lives to live. We all do.
Anyway, I have a thing called hemiparesis(you can Google it if you want) where the entire right side of my body is still pretty weakened from the damn stroke. Sucks to be me, and I really miss being normal...but even though I can't drive yet, I am back to teaching guitar lessons, which is awesome for me. Although, I really do miss playing live gigs, as it was my life for around 30 years, but someday I will be back in action. Just gotta take it day by day. Oh, plus I lost 100 lbs along the way! 😀 July '17 to today January 17th 2019 So there is my little story, today, January 17th, 2019. Keeping the dream alive...love you all. Thanks and cheers! JZ #2019
