Gwen’s Story

Site created on June 28, 2018

We are using this site to keep family and friends updated in one place.  Gwen is recovering from a  stroke that occurred while on vacation in North Carolina. If you would like to send a message, please do so here and we will read it to her periodically - please do not call or text her at this time. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement, and will provide updates as they are received. Thank you for visiting.

Journal entry by Gwen Gunter

Hard to believe that this journey has only been a month long - sometimes it feels like years and other times it seems like only a second ago that life changed (of course there are times we wake up and think it was all a dream...).  We have settled into days filled with appointments, meeting new doctors and therapists to make sure Gwen is getting the best care.  She is progressing, although not as quickly as she would like - you know Gwen!!  She turns in her heart monitor this week, so we hope to have more information about that potential aspect of the stroke.

This will be our last journal entry. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to post information in one place and for making all of your kind comments. I have read each one to Gwen and it absolutely brightens her day! Speaking on the phone is still very tiring, as is reading, but please feel free to send her short texts to check in and send her your well wishes. If you would like more details, please feel free to call me (Cheryl 407.766.2567).
