I've been absent for far too long. As some of you may know, I went through a long period last year of trying to heal up some skin sores. Flashing forward to fall, I was well and feeling sassy again. Fasting glucose in the 100-110 range, A1C running 6.2, no issues. Then on November 15 I had a very small stroke, causing right-sided weakness and slurred speech. I spent three days in the hospital and then three weeks in rehab, getting Physical, Occupational and Speech therapy every day. Now I'm getting outpatient PT and OT twice a week. I'm pretty much back to my pre-stroke status, and feel really lucky because it could have been so much worse. Fortunately I was doing all the things I was supposed to do, my cholesterol and other blood lipids were in the normal range, and so was my blood pressure.
Just a reminder to take care of yourselves, the unexpected can still happen but may be less catastrophic than if you don't.
