A few weeks ago, we went to Utah, & I saw my husband’s family. Usually when I visit, they comment on how much I have changed, but it had only been about 3 months since I saw my husband’s parents, so I didn’t think they’d see anything different—I sure didn’t feel like anything had changed! However, my Father-in-law said he saw MAJOR improvements in my speech, which shocked me… I thought there was none!
Thursday night we had several people at our home: some who don’t know me really well, mixed w/others who do know me well. It was cool, cuz I could talk to anyone! I don’t think I was understood 100% of the time, but there were times when I knew I was understood, since they responded to me! It’s exciting to reach a “new level” with my speech!
WOW!!! THAT IS SO COOL, JENNY! MY (AND URS!!!) DREAMS COMING TRUE – LITERALLY! I REMEMBER WHEN I WAS WORKING WITH U, I’D HAVE DREAMS ABOUT U EITHER WALKING, TALKING OR BOTH!!! CAN’T WAIT UNTIL THE NEXT TIME I SEE U AND WE CAN CHAT IT UP WITHOUT UR HANDS!! UR THE BOMB, GIRLFRIEND!! : )
I am thrilled with your accomplishments, but not surprised. Who works as hard as you do to recover from a debilitating stroke? You are definitely hero material. You worked hard for this progress, enjoy the victory!
