Re: Introduce myself
Hello and welcome to our family.
Well we will all agree you are one very lucky lady. You were saved and its pretty clear why. You have a magnificent job to do and it sounds like your doing great even though your meeting with some challenges. Writing down everything is a great idea. I have a big white board on the fridge and I keep track of important info jotting down everything. Your right to be concerned about your daughters meds. But just make sure you write down dose and time given for your reference. Write down feeding times diaper times etc so you will feel better about it.
Your new in stroke recovery and your going to continue to improve. Im glad your writing down questions for the doctor. Its the best way to go into an appointment.
Im glad you found us so we can help you out. I had a stroke 2 years ago at age 54 and when you talk about he confusion and tiredness its all too familiar. Rest when you can your poor brain has taken a hit and must heal. Rest is healing so when baby sleeps you sleep. The fear you mention is also common with us. You must continue to push that out and remember you were saved for a reason and let that bring you comfort and peace. Every day you are getting stronger and stronger. Some days will seem you will feel great and other days you will feel like your going backwards. This is normal and you will get more and more good days. You sound like your doing amazing.
1 year after my stroke my first grandbaby was born. Whenever he was in my arms I forgot all about my stroke. All I remembered is how great he felt in my arms, how great he smelled and how absolutly wonderful he was.
Let all the great stuff in your life push out all the fear. You will be okay. Keep in touch God Bless Mulchie
