Thank You!!!


... my dear friends for all your encouraging, inspiring messages!! i really feel i'm among friends here :o)
who knows what the future will hold, but i'm ready for it...
the OT (Occupational Therapist) who came to do my physio exercises this afternoon was new to me, but she recognized me from my hospital stay - Nick and the kids used to push me around the hospital in an evening to stop me going stir-crazy in my little room. she was amazed at how far i've progressed in four and a half months, which was encouraging!!!
i'd hard when each day pretty much feels like the one before, but her ooohs and ahhhs at all i could do for myself really encouraged me! i just have to focus on what i have learnt since the stroke - talking, walking, washing, dressing, reading, operating the computer, writing with my left hand, making my lunch - and not on all the multi-tasking i used to do each waking moment before it...
so with your lovely support in blogland, and the daily exercises, i feel i can make it. it's so much easier to travel a hard and difficult road when you're in such good company - thank you!!!!!!!!!

Well done Claire. Small positive steps soon become gigantic leaps and before you know it, you'll be where you want to be.
PS: I too have been indulging in some serious TV watching - the BBC Pride & Prejudice series from 1997 - remember Mr. Darcy in those wet breeches!!!

You are doing brilliantly - and you should be so proud of your achievements.

It seems like quite a journey you are on - but remember the Hare and the Tortoise story?

You will be the winner - we are all behind you.

There is something really courageous and beautiful about your spirit Claire that just shines through in the words and images on your blog. Little by little.....blessings to you.

Fantastic news! When executing a difficult and challenging pose in Yoga, my instructor would say to me "Stay with it Patti!" I always whisper this to myself whenever something seems impossible and I'm on the verge of giving up. Well done for what you have achieved already.

Four and a half months is such a short time for all the things you overcame! You are just amazing Claire! And so brave!

My Goodness Claire. You have achieved an enormous amount! You should be so proud of yourself. Go girl!

Sometimes it takes someone else to see what we don't see. Especially when that person hasn't see us for a while. I am glad you were able to have someone really tell you how wonderfully you are doing!

Claire, I feel dreadful having not visited her for a few days,evena week.....but please know i think and talkabout you often.

I am so frantic here to be honest, trying to get stuff sorted in the garden, so when you come to visit you will see it all!

Lots and lotsof love,
