About the Book

There is Life After a Stroke is a motivational and how to guide on what to expect after a stroke. In 1996 Gene and Michelle Lord had a life changing experience. At the age of 36 Gene had a massive stroke. They had been married since 1979 and had three teenage children. Michelle was told by doctors in the emergency room that if the bleeding in his brain did not stop that he would be dead within 24 hours. He was not a surgical candidate because of how deep in the brain the bleeder was and it had to stop on its own. It did stop bleeding, but there was a hard road of recovery ahead of them. Gene had to relearn how to do everything from sitting up to being able to feed himself, because the stroke basically caused him to physically revert back to being a baby again. He could speak, but physically he could not even sit up in the bed. He was in the hospital for two months and then in a day program of rehabilitation for another two months.

They had to overcome doctors that did not think Gene was a rehabilitation candidate, family and financial problems, loss of everything they owned, but they were able to triumph. They knew though that with the large number of strokes that occur each year that there are many families out there who need practical information on what to expect and how to handle this life changing event.

This experience inspired Michelle to write a book of their personal journey. This is a practical guide on what to expect once a loved one has had a stroke. There are chapters that deal with finances, rehabilitation, clothing, travel, hygiene, etc. There are also chapters on stroke prevention, what is a stroke, and web sites and other references on how to find supplies and more information to help you find the resources you are need of now that your loved one has experienced a stroke.

Michelle wanted to help others understand how their lives were going to change and how to get through even though it seems like the odds are against you. This is a story of triumph over an almost impossible situation. This book is not only motivational, but is also a self help guide to prepare family members, friends, and any one whose life has been affected by a loved one or friend having suffered a stroke. Even if your family has not been affected by a stroke, this guide is a wonderful book to read just to see how they were able to overcome all odds and triumph from this very difficult situation.
