Dave, you are a walking-talking [or perhaps stumbling-mumbling? ] testament to the strength of the human spirit. Keep on keepin' on, eh!

You had a stroke while you were riding? OMG, what a horrible thing to happen. I hope you get plenty of rest and rehab for your injuries. I don't have any spare parts, but I wish you all the best. Were you riding up along the Kern River? Such a beautiful area, been there several times flyfishing.

My cousin's husband had a stroke while riding. Crashed hard, splitting his helmet open, resulting in the medics not realizing he'd had a stroke which caused the crash. He was 70 at the time of the stroke & it took him about 5 years, but he's made a nearly full recovery. There is hope. Keep at it. If you're already working & riding, after a few months, you're doing well. Heck, it took me 4 months to get back to riding & all I got from my crash was a half dozen broken bones & a punctured lung.
