My Road Map
I was talking with Di from the Stroke Foundation and we bought up how there is no "Road Map" for recovery. I got to thinking about the map that was going on in my mind at the time of my stroke and I have made of map of where my life was at.
The road map I knew and was what I always came back too. What had I learn't in life previously that was going to help get me through this.
Boggy Creek Road Moyhu -where I grew up asides from a two year stint in Papua New Guinea, primary school
Wangaratta - Secondary School, work, marriage, first home,
Beechworth and Wodonga - Trainee Nursing
Melbourne - where I was transferred to pregnant and very sick with Eclampsia.
Back to Wangaratta - Bury Chelsea
Phillip Island - Went to spend a weekend there after Chelsea's burial. I had my stroke while walking down main street of Cowes.
Melbourne - sent to Royal Melbourne and given Urokinase through an angiogram to disolve the clot in my brain stem.
Essendon - Where I attended rehab.
Wangaratta - Back home.
Within that map was my life as I knew it.
