3/11/13 - One Year Post Stroke
Today was a big day for us. Today was one year exactly from Alison's stroke. It was late Sunday evening, March 11, 2012, when it happened. It's been a bittersweet day. It's hard thinking about all we've lost, so we tried thinking about what we have. We're both most grateful to still have each other. After all that's happened, she's still my wife and I'm still her husband. She's still the girl I fell in love with nine years ago. We're still best friends. And there's still not much better than spending a lazy evening in front of the TV together. Things are certainly different, but we're going to keep plugging away - together. Another thing we're grateful for is all of you - our friends and family. I can't imagine living the past year without the support you've provided. Thank you all for everything. Going forward, we're going to keep doing what we're doing. We'll continue to seek as much therapy and work as hard as we can to make progress. Just yesterday we noticed new movement in her right ankle. : ) But as I've said before, this is a marathon, not a sprint. We continue to have a long road ahead of us. All of this said, I'm no longer going to post daily updates to Facebook and our blog. Our days have become somewhat routine, so they're not quite as informative as they once were. But I will be updating regularly - just not every day necessarily. With that, I'll close. Thanks again for all of your continued support. And here's to another year of working hard and making progress.
