So, I wanted to share with you a very personal but important ordeal my family and I are dealing with. This March 29th, I had a severe stroke. I’m in an acute rehab center near Phoenix. Currently, I have lost left arm movement, some speech and a walking deficiency. The stroke was caused by a blood clot stemming from an unknown hole in my heart that I was probably born with.
While the doctors predict a great recovery, I wanted you all to know and understand that I will fight hard to return to myself and keep writing. This is just a speedbump not a dead-end to my path!
Because I am learning so much about health factors that impact everyone and many lessons about myself, I plan on writing about my experience on the blog. Keep an eye on the site if you’re interested.
Thank you as always for all support you’ve given me over the years, and I truly appreciate your loyalty and patience during this difficult time.
Best regards, Derek!
