I am ... A Survivor

I am a stroke survivor due to having brain surgery-- the swelling of my brain caused it. I woke up 6am on April 24, 2009 100% paralyzed on my right side. I managed to get everything that I lost back- very, very hard work. After all, me and my husband had just sent our wedding invitations! And I wasn't about to cancel our wedding! after 4 long hard months of Physical, occupational and speech therapies- I managed to walk done the isle.
