My husband has come a long way since the stroke in August 2017. He bought himself a chainsaw a few weeks ago as we have a lot of tree work to be done in the garden. The thought of him using a chainsaw has really been giving me the heebie-jeebies ?, however we've spent most of last w/end, and today, putting the chainsaw through its paces!! I think it's his new best friend ??. His strength and stamina are amazing, but it has taken him over three years to arrive at this point. Like most SS he's had some terrible days, and dark moments, but he's a fighter and I think being able to tackle a project like this has really boosted his confidence and self-esteem. So, although we're sitting here like a couple of old crocks, full of aches and pains, there's a massive sense of achievement, (plus lots of free wood for the log-burner!!).
I love hearing the great stories from all the SSs on this site, and you've given me so much hope and encouragement over the years, so I just wanted to be able to share some good news myself!!
Thank you for all of your support, and best wishes to all SSs, friends and families, never give up, stay strong,
love Nic xx
