Upcoming Author Talk at Phelps Hospital, the place where I began the journey


On Wednesday, I'm going to give an author talk at Phelps Hospital (in Sleepy Hollow, NY) to the neuro doctors, nurses, and support staff, as well as occupational and physical therapists, about my journey to recovery. From Yale-New Haven Hospital, it was Phelps that I was brought in on a stretcher for acute inpatient care. For two weeks, their entire team gave me the confidence and compassion to get stronger.

You can read all about it in "My Stroke in the Fast Lane: A Journey to Recovery", specifically in the chapters titled "Transition to Another Hospital," "Learning with my Left Hand," "The Answer is in the File Cabinet (in Your Brain)," and "Lavender Shampoo and Living to Dance."

Still have certain coordination and speech deficits that the stroke has left me with, but I am here!!!!
