Thanks, Lyndee. I'm sure you realize that the other folks in the photo are friends, not family.Jim, from your last photo, if anyone had told me that you had suffered a stroke recently, I would not have believed it. You (and the family) look fantastic, and I'm so pleased that you're recovering well.
Thanks, Karen. My type of stroke has one of the highest recovery rates, so I was quite lucky there.You really have recovered remarkably well! I'm sure the doctors in Italy knew they were working with a very special man! (....and a very special wife and family!)
Thanks, Wade. The photo, as usual for this sort of snap, was made by the waitress with my wife's iPhone.Great photo, thanks for sharing, and so awesome to see you in an image!
Thanks, Connie, and you're absolutely right about the family contribution. They were essential!Your recovery has been just amazing, Jim! A lot of skilled, excellent medical care in the acute stage at the beginning plus your own good health prior to the event and your determined, persistent hard work at PT throughout recovery has all played roles in the fact that today you're out there hiking more than three miles! Give yourself a pat on the back, maybe two!
Oh, and I nearly forgot to add that you are also fortunate to have such a wonderfully supportive family, too. They have been there every step of the way for you!
