  1. I had a stroke on Halloween, I was doing 30 push ups in the morning and when I got home from work I would do 20 more,before the stroke. Then after the stroke I could not do 8. I have been working at it and I am back up to doing 30 push ups in the morning and 20 at night. Walking every morning and night as well. Still trying more and more every day.
