Had a stroke 3 months ago from AFib. I am walking, talking,and reading. I am able to type and write pretty good too. I go to to pt,speech and work with my medical team at the VA Boston. I do tire easy and feel I'm drooling more on both side of my mouth. My right ride is cold and tingles in hand and foot likes it is asleep and sometimes hand is numb and can't pick up objects. I am much slower then I used to be and tire easily, have to rest after simple tasks. I'm glad to be alive and hope I will not get another stroke......
