Hi Karen. Hi to you as well. I had a similar stroke 19 months ago. You are still in the early stages of recovery, so keep at it. I can now have short daily walks, I cook and bake and do a little ironing. Today I even did a modest amount of dusting. I hate the hard uphill slog and still get post stroke fatigue, but I am grateful to have some quality of life back. Good luck on your journey!
