On this last day of #strokeawarenessmonth, I have to highlight my sweet mom. The first photo is from my wedding in November 2016, a day I never thought I'd share with her. The second is from 8 days after her stroke in January 2016. I'll never forget the feeling I had looking at her in the ICU, wondering what each hour would bring us. It's been a year and a half and today, my momma is off to get surgery to repair some of the damage done to her optical nerves. We are hopeful this will remedy her balance, vision, and quality of life in so many ways. I love you, mom. I'm so grateful for your doctors and for my tireless dad.
