afterstroke

Reflection. Living with the after effects of stroke day to day, it's hard to see the progress and results achieved from his hard work. But watching old videos is a great reminder of how far he has come and give us hope for what can be acheived in the future. Just last year, he was in full time care, unable to walk, was restricted to the lowest speed setting on his powered wheelchair and had no movement in his arm. And now he's smashing PB's and preparing for a fun run/walk to raise funds and awareness for stroke! #stroke #strokesurvivor #tbi #tbisurvivor #braininjury #youngstrokesurvivor #disability #health #fightstroke #strokerecovery #recoveryisworthit #hemiparesis #neuroplasticity #love #family #healing #recovery #hope #strength #determination #motivation #hampsteadrehab #biru #wheelchair #bluehelmet

Nothing that I’ve gone through this year can compare to how tough it has been after my beautiful aunt suffer a massive stroke . My Aunt Gloria (left), my uncle (not pictured), and my cousin @chelseachen17 (right) have always been the closest to me after my own mother. When times got tough in our family, my aunt was the one that held us together. When you just wanted to have a good laugh, my aunt was the one who would make you laugh with her silly but lovable antics. When you wanted unconditional love, my aunt was there to give you whatever you needed . My strong, beautiful, and brave aunt is currently bedridden, on a feeding tube, and on the edge of a minimally conscious state. She is in a nursing home because doctors don’t believe she can take care of herself for the rest of her life . We believe different. We believe in her, and we have faith in her recovery. My cousin has put together a GoFundMe to help raise funds for her recovery because insurance cannot cover all of the speech, physical, and occupational therapy she needs . Link is in my bio and will stay there indefinitely because to be honest, I would sacrifice anything if it meant I could have my aunt back . . #GoFundMe #StrokeRecovery #StrokeAwareness #StrokeSurvivor #RoadToRecovery

Keeping things positive, just wanted to mention why it appears I may have ‘fallen off the fitness wagon’. After a great couple of weeks, my post-stroke brain has decided to hit me with fatigue. Being off work has left me without the constant cognitive demands, therefore I’ve relaxed and suddenly my head is thinking WHAT IS GOING ON?! So I’ve been taking the time rest myself physically doing other cognitive tasks in painting, decorating as well as writing and typing. Had a funny turn last night too so hopefully onwards and upwards now! #thinkpositive #youngstrokesurvivor #strokesurvivor #cardiologysurgery #asd #brain #instahealth #health #positivevibes #positivity

You know what they say it's not a ride unless something goes wrong 1st it was the rain then it was the hail then it got really cold and I was soaking wet thanks to the semi truck that splashed me and the hydro planing lol And then of course after I dried off a little bit and hung Out with everybody and said Hi and hung out by the fire to dry off on the way home of course right after I passed Coney island hot dog I realized 15 miles into the trip back home that I have no foot clutch the screw fell off dam hard tails choppers always have to recheck everything.. So I said fuk it And road without a foot clutch for another 15 to 20 miles till I finally had to stall the bike out at a traffic light and lucky there was a garage across the street that helped me out with a screw enough for me to make it home that was a fun little round trip ride today up to the @marinaramountainrun The furthest one I've done since the stroke, But it was worth every little bit of it because I got to say Hi to everybody up there and that's all I wanted to do Plus I was happy that I got caught in the elements and I'm happy that everything happened to me because I wanted to know how my brain was gonna react with it since the stroke Cause I'm really trying to prepare myself mentally for a long trip to Florida to see family....@cyclesourcemagazine @thehorsebc @chopcult #1958panshovel #strokesurvivor #strokeSurvivors

Yesterday I had a patient enter my examination room with an unsteady wide-based gait. She had new cerebellar stroke. Do you know what to do on exam to differentiate a truncal vs appendicular #cerebellar stoke? Watch this #medskl video with Dr. Wendy Stewart from @dalhousie_university to learn.

I only carried you for a short while before learning your heart was no longer beating, it was tougher than anything I’ve been through (and I’ve been through some bad shit!) I love you my little “pip” just as much as your 6 brothers, so today 4 years on, as a symbol of my love for you I’ve had this beautiful tree of life with a teeny tiny apple tree growing on it in your memory.

We always hear people tell the testimony of beating cancer and “kicking cancer’s arse...” I was wondering earlier why don’t we ever try to beat or kick diseases that we can prevent.. heart disease, diabetes, strokes, high blood pressure can all be prevented by losing weight...I will beat and defeat the generational curses and diseases that obesity causes!!!! Im doing it for my babies so i can live a long and healthy life for them! What’s your reason? Who do you want to live a long life for?! #onedayatatime #itsajourney #stayconsistent #commitment #dieobesity #kickitsarse #beatit #tummytuckjourney #diabetes #heartattack #heartdisease #strokesurvivor #healthiswealth #health #healthylifestyle

Another fresh Friday morning workout. Don’t be afraid to dream BIG. Just ran 7.0 km on the track with 2 km warm up, 10x 100m then 2x 1000m (7:08, 5:47 min) with some 3x 200m strides. After my stroke my physical therapist has me focused on balance strength with leg weights. Balance and speech are biggest goals. #aphasia #running #fortcollins #garmin #strokesurvivor #runningterritory #running #sauna #training #tracknfield #instarun #morningrun

Happy Friday! Some smiles today brought to you by some silly animal sounds. 😍 Damian is starting to be a little more alert. He is doing well overall. Last night he was pretty uncomfortable and didn’t sleep well. We attempted again to wean him off of oxygen, and it didn’t work out. When he’s not on oxygen, his respiratory rate gets really high and he works hard to breathe. So we just put it back on, to allow him to recover at his own pace. Blood counts dipped down again very early this morning. So there are talks again about possibly another blood transfusion, but we will know more when the PICU team rounds on him. His brain drain output is pretty minimal now, and the color is looking pretty good. Not sure when it will be clamped but his neurosurgeon will be by later to give us an update. Still NO SEIZURES! 💜 #day4

2.50 miles around the hood this morning. So many thoughts running through my head: goddammit why is my left leg so stubborn, it’s hot why am I wearing long sleeves, I think I’ll sign up for a 10k, it’s freaking hot!!!, are you crazy?10k?? ohhh pretty flowers!

Visiting my Mom (it was a good visit) after picking her up lumpia from Starbread Bakery, who knew they sold them there? Then regrouped watching the whales feed off the pier. Life is what we make it to be. She has been like this for some 30 years now... Despite the challenges there is always light!!! Enjoy your Friday Friends!!!

Want to know what @invisibledisabilities look like? This. #StrokeSurvivor from December 28, 2014. No answers why. I was healthy, owed businesses, traveled, worked out 5 times a week. Bam. But we must remember life happens for us, not to us. Can I run around 24/7 like I used to? No. Does it get hard sometimes when my body doesn't want to cooperate. Well, just imagine being trapped and you have your answer. Do you quickly learn who your #truefriends are versus those that were friends with you because you signed their paycheck? I think you know the answer. . . I went from never even needing a primary care doctor because in my eyes "I don't have time to get sick," to a team if specialists at several hospitals, university hospitals, and the famous Mayo Clinic. I went from never needing to take medications to a dozen bottles taking dozens of pills each day; just to try to 'force' my body to cooperate and work with me. And yes I have a beautiful blue walker too that I try to hide as much as possible. NOW...do I have GOOD days? Even GREAT days? YES. Do I let these debilitating issues of my body shutting down define me? NO. . . I thank the Lord above every day whether it is good, great, bad, horrific, or indifferent. Because I am here. I CAN and STILL live and fight to be with my children, family, and friends. Anyone can die any day. We are all living a purposeful life if we want to and we have that choice. I hope you can tell what my choice is. Make yours and LIVE. XO .

Some days I just don't have it in me to be the big ray of sunshine I'd like to be. I used to try to put on a "happy face," quote a few Scriptures & Christian platitudes & pretend all was well. Now, I just get lost in Jesus in spirit & in truth. Doesn't always immediately make it better, but at least it's real & honest. Psalm 96:9 NKJV, "Oh, worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness!..." John 4:24 NKJV "God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and truth." #breastcancerwarrior #strokesurvivor #ifeelcrappy #recoveryistough #stayinginthefight #stillrecovering #breastsurgery #chemo #radiation #itsnotover

Just finished walking at the lake! I was able to do 1.8 miles, which as you see had me sweating! 😂 Considering it took me 20 mins to convince my body it was able to get out of bed this morning & another 10 to actually press pass the pain in my bones to do so, I feel like Wonderwoman right now!

Ephesians 2:10 NIV, "For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." I've watched God use breast cancer, a stroke, divorce, job loss, financial struggle, childhood molestation....all kinds of things fashioned to destroy & kill, to do good works prepared in advance! In that regard it does make me feel like a "superhero" that He trusted me enough to put His extra on my ordinary & do something EXTRAORDINARY through experiences. #breastcancerwarrior #stayinginthefight #strokesurvivor #ineedacape #stillrecovering #extraordinarygod

After visiting w/ the nurse practitioner at my oncologist's office yesterday, hearing how agressive my cancer was, the medical standpoint as far as when they consider you an actual "survivor" of the disease, I was so thankful I made up in my mind at the begining of my breast cancer journey that I am healed & will NEVER have breast cancer again! #breastcancerwarrior #strokesurvivor #imhealed #truthtrumpsreality #stillrecovering

1 yr ago today I was headed out the door about this time to have a biopsy on my left breast. I was in good spirits, joking around... The pic on the left was 1/9/17, the one on the right is today. I can see the affects of the breast cancer journey in my face now. The pic from last yr makes me excited! Cancer didn't kill me. It didn't take my smile. It didn't take my laughter. It aged me a bit, but I'll take that! Whatever 2018 has in store for me I am well prepared. In me, God has truly created a perfect storm! #breastcancerwarrior #strokesurvivor #imaperfectstorm #stillrecovering #itshowsonmyface

Most ppl get on here looking their very best. As you can see I am a novice, this my very fashionable haven't-even-had-my-coffee-yet look 😂. Ppl on FB are used to seeing me looking crazy from my videos during chemo. Anyway, the point of the quick clip is the most valuable gifts can't be wrapped or placed in a box. So don't stress yourself out today. Try to GIVE & RECEIVE the gifts that last a lifetime. You'd be surprised how valuable a smile, a hug, or an "I love you" is to someone who is sick, hurting, or just hasn't heard it in awhile. Cancer taught me that! And the package it comes from...black, white, Hispanic, Asian,...Muslim, Jewish, Christian... DOES NOT MATTER! #breastcancerwarrior #seepastthepackaging #strokesurvivor #stillrecovering

It's rare that I have a day w/o pain in this body. Today is no different, but I am all smiles inside. Breast Cancer has been soo hard, but it afforded me the opportunity to fall in love with Jesus all over again. I woke up this AM & was like, 'We did it Jesus! Surgery, chemo, radiation... we did it!' And He's still right here with me for the rest of the ride... #breastcancerwarrior #strokesurvivor #imamiracle #hesstillwithme #nopainfreedays

Today's meal date is a belated birthday brunch w/ 3 of my favorite people, my sisters & my baby sister's boyfriend. We're going somewhere in DC that's supposed to be really nice. I actually have a bit of an appetite today! Cancer really taught me that you eat to live not live to eat. Who I am eating with even if the food is crappy or I'm not hungry is ALWAYS the highlight of any meal for me now. Left by myself I can eat a bowl of cereal, oatmeal, or even a piece of toast or fruit for breakfast, lunch, & dinner & I'm good. I hope everyone has a wonder-filled Sunday! #breastcancerwarrior #strokesurvivor #thisiswhat47lookslike #readytoeat #stillrecovering

Still have a bit of a cold, but excited to hang out w/ one of my dearest friends this evening. It still takes me awhile to get ready to go anywhere. I still have to put on extra makeup to cover the dark circles under my eyes, though I am actually loving the new texture of my hair, it's more fragile now & will take some getting used to, my sleep patterns are still so intermittent that I can always see the tiredness in my eyes, though no one else seems to notice, I can always see my crooked smile... But, when I went to take this picture & saw all of that looking back at me all I could say was, 'Thank You, Jesus! It has been a ride! Look at what a beautiful picture You painted!' Cancer & a stroke when used by the hands of the Master Artisan can only create something BEAUTIFUL! 😊 #breastcancerwarrior #strokesurvivor #truebeauty #chemohair #thisiswhat47lookslike

All packed & ready to spend a wonderfully peace-filled weekend w/ my Jesus & some beautiful women at the Mountain in Jumonville. I had a rough night physically, but I feel pretty good this AM. My head hurts, I feel nauseous, & my bones ache... The regular day after chemo stuff. But, it just isn't getting to me this AM. It is what it is. Happy Friday everybody! I hope today is the start of a wonder-filled weekend for you! (SN: Ladies, I am absolutely LOVING these Satin Lined Caps (Slaps)! They are an absolute Godsend until I rebraid my hair.

The Lord drew my attention to this as I walked around the lake. When I stopped to take the picture He said, "For the rest of this cancer journey I want you to see yourself this way. Those leaves are in their most fragile state. They have withered and to the naked eye appear to have died. Were it not for the web that has completely encapsulated them, they would fall to the ground and be no more. YOU, are encapsulated by My love, My strength, and My power. I AM everything you are not. I AM the Resurrection and the Life. Not only am I on every side of you, I am INSIDE of you. No matter how fragile your body appears. I will NOT let you fall!" So glad I pressed my way to the lake today! #breastcancerwarrior #strokesurvivor #lakeworship #encapsultedbyhim #heismyhope

Started my day at 5:30 AM. Leslie's house is so peaceful. I had my quiet time w/ Jesus, which had me feeling energized & ready to take on the day. We are having a family cookout, which had me all giddy inside... then encountered some usual family hiccups & I got so frustrated. Started getting dressed & got angry bc I couldn't seem to get my eyebrows created evenly. Just before I took this pic I started laughing & singing thinking about something Jesus said to me this AM. He said, "I know how tired you are. I know you are doing all that you can do to get to the other side of this. I want you to let ME do what you can't do. I want you to simply rest in Me & let Me carry you the rest of the way. There is NOTHING for you to do but rest." I think I can do that. Well, I'm going to try my best! #breastcancerwarrior #strokesurvivor #restinginhim

Spent the night w/ my sister, Leslie, which is always a good time. Looking forward to spending the day with her, my gorgeous cousin, Janice, her babies, & my baby sister today. I have a little more pep in my step today, which I am so very grateful for. Happy Friday everybody! #breastcancerwarrior #strokesurvivor #Godsgirl #lovemyfamily #familyday

I was so disappointed that band night was cancelled I am convinced God put this rainbow in the sky just for me! My beautiful cousin Janice Gibson & her gorgeous children are here & we are at dinner. Feeling really blessed just to spend time with some of the people I love most. #breastcancerwarrior #strokesurvivor #heisapromisekeeper #rainbow

On may way out the door to the lake...It has been an extremely tough week. Chemo is getting harder & harder to bounce back from in between treatments. I spent the last five days in bed all day w/ the exception of going to Aqua Zumba Monday & yesterday. And Tues I forced myself to go to the lake for my walk. Other than that I have been in bed feeling like I have the flu on steroids. I know I have to listen to my body. And I know I have to rest, but I refuse to just lie in bed all day & give in to how I feel. I just can't do it. I will never make it through the rest of this journey that way. So, off I go... #breastcancerwarrior #strokesurvivor #lakeworship #mywholebodyaches #gottakeepthisbodymoving #chemoishard
