I have been accused of being too sad in my blog. It has not intended to be depressing, but to be a realistic representation of what it can be like for one to recover from a brain stem stroke. That said, I’d like to tell about my weekend away. We were last in Liberal in February of 2012, and I had a stroke in March. You draw your own conclusion, but I will say it’s not my favorite locale. I will say many nice people do or did live there. Anyway, my longest road trip post-stroke has been to Liberal, Kansas, when I went to my brother-in-law’s wedding. All I wanted was to be invisible, so to speak. I did it, thanks to the fact that I could only see Chris’ head, my caregiver and pharmaceuticals. Prescription, of course. Congrats to my brother-in-law and his new wife. For those who are wondering, (Warning: It gets sad here.) I did grow uncomfortable about halfway through the ride home. I needed my legs to be stretched, much like anyone else’s. I would guess it means more road trips for me, but not less sad for my blog. I’m just keepin’ it real.
