Kimberly Williams Hasam’s Story

It all started with my husband. He is my inspiration. He had SLE and it affected his heart right after he received an LVAD. I guess the stress was too much and I had a stroke. SLE is Lupus and LVAD is a mechanical device attached to his heart that runs off electricity and batteries to keep his heart pumping. He is on the heart transplant list.

I had my stroke May 8 of this year and 2-3 days after that was terrifying I was trying so hard to move and say stuff. I even remember calling people all sorts of names! I cried pretty much non stop for weeks. I remember that much…..

I had right side troubles and I’m left handed so a little easier.Just getting my brain to work with me is the problem. I cried a lot.I feel like I’m falling apart all sorts of things’ wrong with me now one thing after another….. But we have 2 grown children who have moved back home to take care of us both I’m blessed. I know that couldn’t have been easy.

     I had locked-in syndrome and forgot how to do most everything still can’t walk or talk well but everyday it gets better. My occupational therapist said not to paint because it would be to much mess for my caregiver but my husband saw I was miserable and said “Screw that!”, and he set me up.
My first painting. After my stroke on May 8th of this year. I'm so tickled pink I can hardly stand it so I wanted to share with my little family. .. hugs to all!
