For those who don't know, I have been in hospital since mid-September suffering with a bleed on my brain, in effect a stroke. I hope to be home by Jan 6th. I continue to improve and may be back to near normal later in 2014.
Never take "normality" for granted. I finally made it home, hopefully for good, on Friday Jan 3rd, although swallow, walking, speech and writing all still have a long way to go. I have to keep doing my exercises.
