In April 2012, I suffered a stroke. I am beginning to feel better now and will continue to get your orders out. It's now been 5 years later and my health has vastly improved, but it's still going to be a long road to total recovery. I've lost weight and have managed the diabetes so well that my doctor has taken me off insulin and my blood pressure is down due to meds! We toured the East coast with Cory and his cute family in July 2015. I cannot believe I just did that. And this month (May 2016) we all met up at Yosemite for Mother's Day...then Dave, Amber and I flew to SLC to help her negotiate buying a new car......I'm amazed at what I'm able to do now.......The road to recovery is winding and bumpy, but at least I'm on it !!!!! Dave has taken good care of me. We go out on Saturdays, which is always a good thing. Thank you for your notes and cards of love. It all helps! I felt so much better that we joined the kids and grands to Yosemite (May 2014),,,that is really improvement ! Yeah for me and I'm so thankful to my Heavenly Father for this.........
