It’s been a good week. My Speech Therapist and I had a conversation yesterday about speech progress until this point, and it has been good. Unfortunately, my speech allotment from Medicare is almost up, so we are dropping to one visit a week until it is exhausted (two-three more visits). We’re going to use those visits as maintenance visits. I will be put into real-life stressful scenarios by my ST and we will work through them using my speech strategies.

I went for a full vision exam this week and everything went well. The doctor did do an additional test when he noticed my pupils were unequal by about one millimeter. I advised him that it was a new normal for me since the bleed, and they’re not always unequal. The condition is known as Anisocoria. In most cases, it’s no big deal. He just wanted to make sure everything was cool. I heart doctors that really care.

I’m finally over the sore throat that was nagging me since last weekend. Feeling much better now.


Do you have, or have heard of Anisocoria? Also, what have you all celebrated this week?




About My Miracle Life

I'm a writer, blogger, avid reader, book reviewer, sub-arachnoid hemorrhage and stroke survivor, moving forward in my recovery and trying to advocate for stroke and brain hemorrhage awareness and prevention. I'm also slowly working towards independence, driving, my first novel, a memoir and a series of short stories. I've been lucky to have a very small network of close friends to guide me; I've been even luckier to have found an online 'family' of sorts to help me through the rough times.
