About the Book

When I awoke from my stroke, which was a pons stroke at the base of my neck. A blood vessel to my brain had ripped and was bleeding into my brain, causing damage. I was unable to move any part of my body but my eyes just a little. I could not speak, breathe, eat, or drink. I worked and recovered some of my movement in the first three months, but it would take years and a lot of hard work to fine tune my muscles. I had lost my dream car, my plane, my home, and all of my savings to pay for medical bills in just a few months. Then I lost my husband of twenty-eight years, when I gave him a divorce because he had to move on with life.
