On the morning of June 3rd, I rolled into the ER with a CVA primarily impacting my basal ganglia. I was truly fortunate to not experience the cognitive and language issues many have had. I ended up with left-side hemiparesis. After a few days in acute neuro, I spent the rest of June in in-patient rehab, went home on July 1, and then had in home OT and PT for about 6 weeks. Now I go back to the hospital for outpatient care a couple times a week for outpatient therapy.
I'm excited to join this community and talk to others who have gone through similar things, and hopefully pass on some of the lessons I've learned!
