A journey of love and loss
Who Are We
I'll Walk With You
Steps for Stroke Fundraiser
One handed life. It has been hard adapting to life with one hand. Learning how to do daily activities is challenging, especially with your non dominant hand. So when something like this happens, it's frustrating. Broken head phones is nothing to get upset about, but it's another cost we must bear.
The new normal. We're focused on rehab, recovery and smashing goals. But we're also pushing through new challenges: tremors that shake the bed every morning, sleepless nights, bad dreams, and pounding headaches. This is our new normal; on alert, combating life's challenges together and preparing ourselves for whatever comes next.
Blueberries. We're stuck indoors due to the smoke so decided to try out some new kitchen aids. Nathan needs a splint to keep his wrist in alignment as he attempts to feed himself blueberries with a special grip fork and adaptive EazyHold utensil cuff.
Don't give up. Remember to pause and look back on how far you've come. All the heartache, pain and trauma you're going through is leading up to something great. Nathan's recovery is painstakingly slow, but it is happening. Since this video was taken two years ago, Nathan's mobility has improved and he has tackled fun walks and mountain climbs. Anything is possible.
Switch. Trialling the Nintendo Switch: playing as a team, Nathan moves around using his one hand and I take on the monsters.
