A fight for the future

by Ernie Severino, November 3, 2011

In 2006 i suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm which led to a stroke . the stroke left me unable to walk or use my right arm or hand . I mostly sit around all day in my wheelchair as i look on the computer trying to find answers and help. In July I had blood work done and now my A1C was 8.4 so I needed to start with pills . cut out all sugar in my coffee and walking a bit with cane. I have lost 22lbs and got the A1C down to 5.6 still working on it. 5 years ago I thought i would never see any grandchildren and now i have 3 need to keep up my fight
