my poor ugly swollen toe

dr today

2Well I'm the proud owner of two non existent big toenails! The left fell off in his hand ( Ouch ) and the right he filed and cut down to match. At least I don't have to pay for a pedicure for the next year lol.

not for the squeamish

2My gorgeous toe today

seeing red

1The surfing went great and it was so much fun! I fell partially off the board twice. So I didn't drown or burn but a shark bit off my toenail! Okay really Mom was not paying attention and ran me into a table. I really hope my toenail grows back ( it is the big toe). It doesn't hurt terrible but it is really ugly! O and they did really catch a little shark about 50 feet from me surfing. I was surfing and didn't see ( Thank God ) but Mom got it on film! I'll post the videos

2The pool was so much fun today! Since I go surfing Saturday I asked them to dunk me some to practice holding my breath but then that turned into them putting me on a make shift surf board and dragging me around the pool and making waves for me

If you can't understand my dynavox in the video,    Hello my name is Jessica Davenport and I would like to tell you my story. In 2004 at the age of 19 I had a massive brain stem stroke from birth control. Well, I guess I should explain my stroke more. I started smoking cigarettes at 15 and started taking birth control at 16. At the time,smoking was not a huge no no while taking birth control so I stupidity continued. So smoking combined with birth control combined with me having a rare blood clotting disorder caused me to form a clot somewhere in my body and go to my heart. If it would have stayed there I would have died,but I have a patent frament ovali (hole in my heart) and that caused the clot to go to my brain stem and cause a stroke. So the hole in my heart was an unknown stroke of luck. No pun intended. Even though I can't walk or talk yet giving up is not in my vocabulary and my numerous quad girl videos proove that. Please continue watching my progress a…

what if

If i didn't have my stroke, well actually my blood disorder i probably would have been a young unwed mother. ( you can't really get pregnant with my blood disorder until you get on blood thinner )

Indeed

Do you like sushi? Today mom and I went to the Riverfront here and they have a sushi bar. I have not had sushi since before my stroke. It was so good and really easy for me to eat. Stuck together and bite sized.
