The neural connections to my arm are not yet made, so it remains none functional from the shoulder down.

It may or not be permenant

My physio says she can feel my muscles move my arm , they are just to weak to move it . Wether it gets stronger we will wait and see.

Considering death was on the agenda, if I escape with just my arm being non-functional ,I will happily live with it.

That's very good news Dan, have faith in your body and mind. I really think given the news your arm will improve.

OK no two strokes are similar but my left arm (& I'm a lefty) was was flying around at first with no control at all.

I'd say that now it is 95% functional, with no sense of feeling in the tips of my index and second fingers.

I walked from my downstairs bedroom to the kitchen, going past the middle room with no assistance , just a quad stick. I am fuckin happy.

Good news! I cannot claim to have recovered from a stroke, but I can thank life saving medication for an incurable autoimmune disease. Each step forwards even for something so mundane as being able to have a shower or clip your own toenails seems like a great triumph.

See DQ, you can do it. Faith in your body and mind.. Excellent news!

Indeed Simon, we take life far too much for granted.
