Strokes have fallen to 5th leading cause of death in the US, down from 4th. A good sign. However, strokes are increasing among young people. Disturbing.

Several people have written in asking advice on dating when you are disabled. I was very disabled at first after my stroke and dating was terribly hard. My advice is to date a lot, kind of like a job search. Online dating is your friend. All you need is one amazing person who thinks you are amazing too.

Other advice?

My husband and I had our first night out since the baby. We dressed up for the occasion and ate curious food.

We tried not to talk about our son all the time. Didn’t work totally.
