This picture was taken just weeks before my stroke and it’s probably the last one taken of me walking without need of assistance. If you look close enough, you can see my tiny baby bump. A little under three months pregnant I was already starting to show. This picture is one of the reasons this blog is titled Half Strokes of Luck. This is the last photo taken of me walking, it is of my left side, it is of me on stairs, it is of me with a pony tail, it is of me holding my son’s (Skas) hand. I can no longer walk normally, my left side no longer works properly, stairs make me cry, I can no longer put my hair in a pony tail on my own and Skas has not held my left hand to walk anywhere since my stroke.
