  1. My stroke was due to a careless surgeon who let blood bleed into my brain while doing surgery for double vision.

    • I hope he paid for his carelessness Jackie. Your stroke was unnecessary.

      My uncle was also paralyzed from the waist down due to a surgeon.

      Western medicine has a lot of negatives.

      I am sorry that happened to you Jackie. Thankfully you have a loving husband who stands by you. My uncles wife left him.

      But your doing a great thing with your volunteer work and the things you share on your website.

      Thanks Jackie for commenting and telling me your personal experience.

      Sincerely,
      Randy
