The rubric asks for at least 2 (specific) connections in the conclusion, which seems you may only have 1 or it is unclear.
I also noticed under mechanics at the bottom of the rubric it asks to clearly layout intro, reflection, and conclusion. I see you broke down the body into more specific headlines, which looks good, but I will leave this to your discretion whether you think it satisfies her criteria. I think your way seems professional but you are the higher experienced writer and just thought I would ask you to think about it.
I have not googled anything about AFO yet but I am interested. I am curious where you found that information, and if maybe it should have a source with it as it seems it may be extra to either book. Also the rubric wants a format of presenting the additional AFO. · Be sure to be very specific in your description of the activity or resource, including the format in which you think the additional material should be presented. (25 pts)
I think we are very close to being done. If I could only ask one thing of you that would be to keep the rubric on hand and use it as a checklist. Checking off all the criteria should result with full credit. Sorry again for not getting back to you sooner, I had a busy week but after completing an exam this morning I will be more readily available to reply to emails faster.

Falling in love with the process: Cultivating resilience in health challenges–A stroke survivor's story of recovery and advocacy
My favorite passage in the book would be in the prologue when Bill meets Patricia. Their meeting sparked the collaborative relationship between them that later inspired the narration of the book. The passage is crucial because it portrays how persistence, determination, strength, optimism, and courage could be instrumental in helping a stroke patient in his recovery process. Patricia notes in one of the conversations that Bill did not accomplish his recovery process on his own. These sentiments depict the essence of family support during the rehabilitation process of a stroke survivor hence connecting with the experiences in the Health Communication class that also acknowledge that caregivers, family members, and friends offer patients hope, inspiration, and a reason to believe in the recovery (Yamasaki, Geist-Martin & Sharf, 2016). The essay will commence by giving a summary of the book and evaluate the first and fifth chapters of the book. Apart from the primary source, "Falling in love with the process: Cultivating resilience in health challenges–A stroke survivor's story of recovery and advocacy" and the class material, an additional resource will be used to emphasize the ideas presented in chapter 5. Discussion questions will be formulated from Chapter 2 before concluding the review with connections from the class material, "Storied Health & Illness."
Summary of the Book
The book, "Falling in love with the process: Cultivating resilience in health challenges–A stroke survivor's story of recovery and advocacy," narrates the real events pertaining Bill's recovery story and advocacy as a stroke survivor. It commences with his early life and the chronology of events from the time he contracted stroke onwards and issues that contributed to his recovery. While the book addresses some of the challenges experienced by victims of stroke, it emphasizes the essence of family support in the recovery process.
Chapter one is selected as the first section of this book review. In this chapter, the authors explore how stigma, depression, and other internalized ableism play an instrumental role in shaping the challenges that Bill experienced in his early emotional response to stroke. They point out how communication with others and having a HealthCare provider is essential in making individuals have the drive and courage to work on their rehabilitation. An extremely useful idea that I found in this chapter is that having certain attributes is crucial in recovering stroke patients. It is written that "For Bill, showing up implies committing to giving it your best" (Parsloe & Geist-Martin, 2019, p.14). Here, resilience and commitment are highlighted as some of the vital attributes that contribute to a quicker recovery. The idea is instrumental when dealing with a stroke patient because various challenges accompany the recovery process. Majorly, these challenges are cognitive, emotional, and physical. Finding an idea that was not helpful in the book was challenging. However, it is only normal for Bill to credit his father and mother for his work ethics, considering that parents play a significant role in the socialization process of their children. Nevertheless, the chapter is crucial in pointing out the early symptoms of stroke that are mostly assumed by many. Indeed, Levine (2013) emphasizes that the first step to recovering from a stroke is by acknowledging and discovering stroke symptoms. It ensures immediate treatment and hastens the recovery process.
Chapter five takes into account Bill's capacity to configure his rehabilitation process and how his group of friends offered him support throughout his recovery process. The chapter reveals how his colleagues and friends were instrumental in preparing him on his road to a successful career. Notably, the same attributes that drove him towards his recovery were also vital in shaping his career. Apart from the development of a network of friends, an additional activity that could be incorporated in this chapter would be the Ankle-Foot-orthosis, since it is highly recommended for enabling patients with their movements. Foot drop is the challenge that individuals experience when lifting the front part of their foot because of damage or fatigue, affecting nerves and muscles that help in movement. To assist in dealing with such issues, AFO should be set in a way that ensures that the front part of the foot is curbed from dipping down or disrupting walking movements hence making it an essential aid in recovery.
Chapter 2 discussion questions
· Do you think the relationship between John William Torres and Bill played any role in his recovery process?
· What impact did growing up during the great depression have on Bill's childhood?
· What does it feel like to experience a stroke in front of your parents?
· Does personality impact an individual's ability to recover from stroke?
Bill uses his narrative to connect with fellow survivors who feel disheartened or are on the verge of giving up. Whenever he walks in a hospital setting and comes in contact with a stroke survivor, he is a living witness of successful stroke recovery. Bill's narrative is connected with the class textbook "Storied Health and Illness" since they provide a methodological and theoretical description of health communication issues in various contexts. They both opine that human health treatment as a whole can be comprehended as a series of interconnected activities. Most importantly, they depict how social, cultural, and political beliefs shape individuals' consequences and stories of their health. The perceptions that people have on their values and beliefs shape how they approach their medical care and how they are treated.
