Handling a 1 year old after stroke

User - posted on 09/08/2009 ( 2 moms have responded )




I had a stroke 3 years ago at age 30 because of a pfo...a hole in the heart that never closed...before the stroke my husband and I had 3 children thinking our 12 year old would complete our family! well, after the stroke I tried to go back to work,but realized having my own business once again was too demanding...I was denied social security because I didn't put enough in...I was denied ssi because my husband made too much..My depression grew after denial after denial...so of course I prayed to the Lord..for a blessing please and lol we had our 4th child 3rd daughter August 15th 2008! This is very difficult for one who has one hand knows putting in a ponytail in oneself hair is impossible! Velcro sneakers are an in fad for me.. putting on a bra is through the legs and wiggle it up..so now dressing the very active 1 year old is one heck of a loving challenge everyday! I thank the Lord for velcros for her also! lol
