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.
