I know…I have not posted anything here on my blog since mid-June because of some serious health issues I’ve had since the end of June. Many of you who are connected with me on Facebook already know that I had several heart attacks and 2 strokes which left me with no use of my right arm and little use of my left leg. The strokes also affected my vision. After nearly 4 months of Occupational and Physical Therapy, I’ve regained nearly 90% of my right arm functions and my left leg is close to normal…still a little unsteady at times though. My vision is compromised but I can see fairly well close-up so I can see to paint (thank God) but distance viewing is a real challenge. I’ve begun painting again and am still having some trouble controlling the brush but that will return with time. I also have some trouble processing information about how I want to proceed on it. But all in all, things are good. I’m blessed to have gained back as much as I have and am thankful that my painting career is not over as I had originally feared. Hopefully now, I’ll get back to more regular posts so stay tuned for painting updates! Take care everyone and thanks for your patience.
