Every Day is a Gift

When I took a seat in my mother’s living room, I knew my life would never be the same.

The last thing I remember is putting my coffee down, taking a seat, and the sensation of tears streaming down my face and the feeling of paralysis. I had a stroke at 6:30 AM on May 13th, 2018. I was taken to a hospital in Winnsboro, Louisiana. There they took a CT-scan of my brain, but were otherwise unequipped to handle my condition. At 10:00 AM, I was airlifted from the hospital in Winnsboro to a hospital in Shreveport, Louisiana (LSUS).

My memory of that day from there is vague and fuzzy. It wasn’t until the following day that I was fully conscious and aware of what had happened. My voice was gone. I was diagnosed with advanced aphasia and motor apraxia. My greatest journey was beginning to take root.

Thank you for all of your prayers and well wishes. I wouldn’t have made it without my family. Every day you all have stood by me while I fight to learn, piece by piece, word by word. I know I can do this.

Since I got out of the hospital, I have practiced every day in my own time and in my own way, using the same philosophy that I have taught all of my life to people all over the world. I know it works because I have seen the results in my teachings. Thank God for the speech therapists that are pushing me every day to make progress.

I have been posting daily videos on my YouTube channel documenting my journey with Aphasia. All of the videos I've posted up until this point are all in a playlist called, My Aphasia Journey.

I will be working at Level Ten every day, every time without fail, no exceptions.

God Bless,
