Jean’s Story

Site created on October 17, 2020

Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement as well as  all of the cards, flowers, plants, and most importantly prayers.   

On October 5th, Jean suffered a stroke at home and was taken to Sarasota Memorial Hospital.  After a number of days in ICU and their neurology unit she was moved to their acute rehab unit where she has been since October 14th.  The stroke affected the left side of her body, including her arm and leg.  She is in an intensive rehab program where they are working with her to gain back all of her movement.  

Please feel free to leave well wishes for Jean on the site, thank you for visiting.   Terry, Jean, Christine, Jamin, and Adeline

Journal entry by Christine Wilson

All of the hard work my Mom is doing is paying off!  Today my parents were encouraged to hear my mom is making such good progress that they would like her to stay at the rehab facility until next Wednesday.  They think that another 6 days of intensive therapy will really benefit her in the long run.  After a long discussion they both agreed that it was the best thing to do even though it is delaying her return home.  They have been able to spend more time together this week as my Dad is now trained in how to support my Mom in her daily activities.
