Six Time Stroke Survivor Blogs Her Way to Better Health

Six Time Stroke Survivor Blogs Her Way to Better Health

Jennifer Saake recently celebrated life after suffering six strokes at only 39-years-old. She had a long road to recovery. After nearly two months in the ICU at Renown Regional Medical Center and Renown Institute for Neurosciences, Jennifer worked on regaining her mobility at Renown Rehabilitation Hospital. Three years later, Jennifer’s blog, “Stoke of Grace,” has become a form of therapy and an online support group for other stroke survivors.

Not expected to live or recover, Jennifer is now walking with a cane, has recovered much of her eye-sight, some hearing and partial use of her hands. She attributes much of her recovery to the great care she received at the Renown Rehabilitation Hospital, along with blogging, music and water therapy, and her supportive family and friends.

    I am 34 years old, a wife to Bakers and mummy to Ava and George. I was a lawyer but have been a stay at home mum for nearly nine years now, which is slightly scary. I have loved it and I would count it as a job because I have worked harder at home than I ever did anywhere else. What happened to me? I was going to say that I have recently become disabled. It’s actually five years ago, now so it isn’t that recent, but it still only feels like yesterday that I felt I had a burst AVM. A lot of other people have explained it a lot better, so I am not even going to attempt if you want to know more type ‘Arteriovenous Malformation’ into any Internet search engine. In search for a better health I came across people talking of Dr. Adebola on the internet, on how he uses herbs to treat so many chronic diseases, I was reluctant to give his herbal fomular a try. At first it was like a miracle to me and my loved ones, I later realized that it was the miracle powers in his herbs that help my brain cells to function normal, after 5 years I now have my health in order, I now do everything I couldn’t do while I was disabled, am so grateful to God and Dr Adebola, I can’t thank him enough so I pray his nature’s knowledge be multiplied to help reach out to more people in need of a stable health.
    I want people to think about the HEALING powers in nature’s herbs, If you have already had a stroke then I appreciate this might be too late but carers and loved ones should think about this in case something similar happens or had happened to them!
    Reach out to Dr. Adebola, message him via email dr.adebola12@yahoo.com, or whatsapp via: +19292018600
    Best of luck.

    Did she have all 6 of them back to back over a few days? Or was it over several months/years?

    I had my stroke July 17 2016 and I have done real good progress since then I can walk with out a Kain and I can move my arm and hand come pair to the day I got the stroke I couldn’t move nothing on right side but all I got say is stay focused and do a lot of exercises every day and it will pay off and don’t forget about your hand you got to work that out to every day squeeze some thing It don’t matter if it’s sponge or foam ball but the you exercise the stronger you’ll get just keep doing that trust me you’ll get better.

    Hi… Good job
    on your video, I’m disabled also; Brain Injury “Stroke”. I’m trying to create
    YouTube Videos to reach other people with disabilities but I’m not doing so
    well. Most disabled and elderly people that I met have trouble eating on their
    own. With that said, that is the main reason that I’m writing you. Will you
    help me spread the word about my spoon design; http://www.Cuddlespoons.com? If my design can help more people like me with disabilities GREAT! The
    disabled community in my area are already benefitting from using my spoon. I will
    reimburse you for any of your help. Thanks ~ Ken V.
