_IGP3510Little did I know when my husband took this photo of my two children and I a few days before Christmas that the new year would bring something none of us were expecting: a stroke.  I had dissected my vertebral artery about three weeks before but didn’t realize the ongoing neck pain and headaches were due to this.  The outgoing year had brought a new baby, a new medical practice, our tenth anniversary and my 31st birthday.  The incoming year…well, that’s what this blog is all about.

I used to keep a blog about our efforts to raise our children well and live a sustainable life.  Naturally, I still want to do both; at the same time, my focus has changed drastically and I needed a new blog to reflect that.  Welcome back to anyone who followed me here.

Update: I’m back to writing about my family in addition to my strokes so I’ve moved again. Come visit me at Our Own Flavor

      Welcome Jackie. Head over the Rocky Mountain Stroke Survivor as well. There are a number of bloggers, many compiled in the Stroke Tattler, who write on the subject. So sorry about your strokes and welcome to the bloggy community

Yes, I'm a doctor; no, this blog IS NOT intended to be medical advice of any sort. I am writing about my own experiences and opinions and pulling together things I find out as I go along to process what's happening to me and in the hopes it helps someone else.
