It's been 3 years - seriously???

Really??? Today, 3 years ago I had my stroke. It's stunning to think of how much has changed in 3 years. It's exhilarating to think of how much my life has improved since then.

I still have a few reminders {killer leg cramps since my right leg is STILL stronger than my left and even though I fight to hide it my left leg still drags a little - especially when I'm tired. Also - an almost completely dead left foot...wiggling toes or standing on tip toe is, well, really hard}...BUT here's what I can do: live a long & healthy life {thanks to Mr. Pacemaker}. Walk {hello - HUGE improvement}. "Be normal" {or at least not have to deal with heart problems, partial paralysis & exhaustion every day}. Which is AWESOME!

So I'm celebrating life today!!! My cup overflows & it's a glorious day to be alive! Go hug somebody & have a great day!

Happy Day to you!!! I knew you'd had some serious health issues in the past, but I didn't realize how recent it was. And to think I first met you at CKU-Atlanta in 2006 and never realized how ill you had been! Way to go girl!!! You're an inspiration to me in more ways than one!!
