Sorry to hear about BH's stroke. Just sending best wishes to her for a full recovery.
I had a mild stroke a few years ago that caused me to lose some function in my right hand. It was weird to say the least. I would have been devastated
by it if I had not done so much meditation and exercises designed to move energy around the body.
Even with that, it was tougher than I thought it would be to recover. It was a case of theory not quite meeting practice, which kind of brought home
the message to me that real life is a very tough grind sometimes and it is easy to become over confident about alternative pathways to solving
Anyway, I started to employ some of the methods I had learned from a book by Mantak Chia. Sending "chi" into the affected body part did have some
effect, but what really turned the tide was guitar playing.
My hand is completely normal now and guitar skill continues to improve.
This might sound odd but BH might try some "singing therapy" to regain her vocal articulation. Just simply rehabbing the stroke affected part is
helped immensely by more intense concentration involved in playing, or in this case, singing, music.
Strokes, even mild ones, can be very disheartening to the victim. I think one must buckle up and fight back and be prepared for a prolonged exertion.
Never say die.
