About This Book:
In the author's words: "I had always been healthy, and had never been hospitalized since 1980 when I came to the United States. But I suffered a stroke in early July 2016. It is due to cerebral infarction related to atrial fibrillation. Then i was left hemiplegic."
"After spending a long day in the emergency room and inpatient observation for 48 hours, the situation calmed down in stablization, I was transferred to a convalescent hospital for two and half months. Then I was allowed to go home for further self-rehab. The stroke has been over six months when this bilingual edition is published."
"Surprisingly, the illness has recovered uneventfully and fairly quickly. Now I can move freely indoors, assisted by walker, taking care of basic needs, like human waste handling. Particularly rewarding is ability of using computer is recovered. Mental recovery has largely been restored to the premorbid status. From October 15 on, I began writing articles for American Chinese journals like before. More than 20 articles have been submitted, with the majority published."
"I am collecting 16 selected articles into this bilingual edition entitled Notes on Overcoming Stroke. They all have English Abstract with different degree of details. Important articles like 'Coconut Oil is Felt to Expedite Rehab After Stroke' would be, among all the articles included in this booklet, the most noteworthy one ever reported in literature before. Please read the English Abstract at the end of the article with details. Or you can read all text in Chinese in this booklet through Google translation to get 70% of what it tells."
