My stroke was 7 years ago this month. We have worked on recovery every day since I woke up, unable to move the right side of my body. This video of me at therapy shows how far I have come! Yeah, my movement is not perfect but I can lift my arm over my head, open and close my hand, and roughly engage my fine-motor skills. WOW!
My physical trainer, Ryan Rockwood, filmed me. My thanks go out to Ryan and the great people at the OHSU Center for Health and Healing for their consistent support and encouragement throughout my recovery.
