Hello everyone

Here is my one month update after Coil and PED and stroke....

I stayed at home for one week after the procedure and then returned to work full time.

I still have trouble with panic attacks sometimes and my writing skills have

suffered as well. I take speech therapy and it seems to help a little with my memory.

My mother is a health 92 year old lady living in Germany. For years I have visited

her over the Thanksgiving holidays and decided that this year was no exception.

So, I put my big girl panties on and braved all the crowds and got on that 11 hour plane to Germany

I am so happy I did, only had a small panic attack, but, talked myself out of it.

Life is good thanks to my supportive husband, friends, coworkers and

children. I will not let this defeat me, no way no how..........

What great news, Christa! It takes guts to do what you did, but having done it, you must really have a feeling of victory!
