“Ten Things That Suck About Having a Stroke”

March 1, 2008 Guest, Steve Patterson 7 Comments

An update by Steve’s friends:

When shown Margie’s previous post Steve’s first reaction was, “I am going to write a post called: Ten Things That Suck About Having a Stroke.” When asked what he loved about it he responded without missing a beat, “NOTHING!” THAT IS SO STEVE! With that, we — as Steve’s closest friends — are convinced more than ever that he is on the road to full recovery.

For the first few weeks we (and the doctors), while optimistic, knew not what level of recovery he might achieve. Since starting rehabilitation a few days ago, the progress he has made physically is nearly matching his sharp mental acuity.

Again, he wants to thank everyone for all the cards, flowers, and well wishes — even from those with whom he has disagreed in the past. The outpouring of offers of support are overwhelming. Your generosity may be called upon in the future, but rest assured he is well taken care of at the moment.

At this point he is expected to be in rehab (we keep asking whether he’s met Britney yet) for another couple of weeks. So, while he is not quite up to resuming his role here as “Urban Arbiter,” he may be posting here sooner than any of us expected. Until then, more guest editorials are lined up to keep the discussion of positive change in St. Louis going. Ya’ll come back now, ya hear?

    Thanks to the friends for updates and guest editorials on this site. Steve has been through a lot, but is making great progress and will once again rule the keyboard of opinion and show his love for Saint Louis and the urban environment. Go Steve!

    Steve! So glad to hear of this huge progress! You might have figured out by now that my real purpose in the guest spot below is to provoke you into taking the reins again! Stop me before I blog again … xxxooo Margie
