"Adventure" continues, I still don't know how to wipe myself... Therapist is sick, called now and made a rain-check.

BTW, it does not leave me with a positive first impression that she called about 40 lminutes later than she should have been here.

It just goes to show that even the most basic of tasks, personal hygiene, has to be relearnt after a stroke. People tend to think about the obvious things, such as walking and talking, but there are a whole range of tasks and skills that need to be relearnt, of which those are but two.

However, the brain is remarkably adaptive and given time most of the things (if not all, to some extent) that you were able to do prior to your stroke you will be able to do afterwards. It just takes time to, if you like, reprogram the wiring in the brain to accommodate the enforced changes.

Well said, Dwarf. For me, it has been interesting to notice that I have had (unknown to me) an ability priority list. I mean, I could care less if my physiotherapist called and canceled our next meeting so I skipped an hour of learning to walk, but I'm always keenly awaiting the speech lessons and vocal therapy, can't wait to be able to communicate normally. It seems speech has a priority over other things I miss.

I had not known this, not realized I find an certain ability to do something more important than another ability.

After quite a few month's, tody i got my phone and notebook to communicate via bluetooth.
Finally able to move the pics of my phone to the lappy. WooHoo.
My son gave me this phone without cabling. Can only get one via special order.

Also,

Kari, i understand what you are going through.
My best mate became quadreplegic nearly 30 years ago. Though he has limited movement in his arms, his hands are of no use. Not a good thing.

Sure hope you are on the way back to the old Kari.

I have to make a confession: I'm pervert. I like ladies as my greatly beloved single malt: the closer my own age, the better. Smoothly matured, taste of real life, pure enjoyment to all my sences.

Kari, I concur in your assessment.

Kari,
I have called several home care agencies and told them what my wife needs and the quality of care I am looking for. To date I have found no one I trust, dependable and reliable.
For the last 2 years I have been my wife's therapist, hygienist and caregiver. There are some things I've had to do to my sure she doesn't back up and suffer bowel obstruction, infection or bloating. When someone is bedridden(horizontally) there is no gravity taking the food downward and out the bowel trail. It's not pretty but someone has to do it.
So I know what you are going through and hope you find and get quality help.
Take care my friend and remember little steps will lead to bigger ones.
