On December 15, 2010 I suffered a stroke which primarily affected my speech/language and my left arm and leg. I returned home on February 22, 2011 from an inpatient hospital acute rehabilitation program (after initial inpatient hospitalization and then sub-acute rehabilitation in different locations).
I have been participating in physical, occupational and speech/ therapies since the end of December. We are told that the progress I have made in these last two months indicates further recovery over the next six months to a year.
I can walk now with a cane (or a walker for longer distances) and I can use my left hand/arm to about 80% of my ability previous to stroke…..
We missed the trip we had planned to Paris, to see two Swan Lakes in Bastille and a performance of Pina Baush's 'Sacre' in Garnier due to my hospital stays.
For the next few months I will continue my intensive physical and speech therapies, with the goal of attending the reconstruction of Raymonda at La Scala in Milan…….

Raymonda in Milan is a wonderful goal. "La Scala or Bust"!
