Changing gears

Dear friends

New and exciting changes are happening in our lives. Keep posted to know about them!

Jan continues to face challenges these days. As time goes on, it becomes clear what functions are restored and what functions may or may not come back. She has made progress but she still faces major challenges.

She has developed quite a lot of mobility, she is taking Yoga, she volunteers twice a week at the church office, she is taking a weekly workshop, and assisting in an Alpha course once a week. I addition, she is taking a computer course to use an assistive device (a talking computer!), and is beginning to take a speech therapy class. So her schedule is quite busy.

On the rehab side, she struggles with the anti-seizure medication which affects her speech and mobility and makes her drowsy. She experiences also problems with fatigue and a number of other cognitive and communication challenges (see list in last posting)

She reads her email (janitawalton@gmail.com) and answers all the notes; drop her a note! She loves hearing from her friends, and now with this assistive device, she can do a bit more because it "talks" to the pc as well.

Keep in touch!
