ext time you're planning on having a stroke, ask me first and I'll advise against it Laugh | :laugh:
It's good to see you've recovered and picked up your life again! Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:
Best,

If I had the option to plan it, I would have gone to the hospital.
My little brother was driving around, had chest pains, so drove to the closest hospital. He had a heart attack while in the emergency room. They moved him up to a room, performed 4 stints and he was out 2 days later and back to normal.
I on the other hand, felt nothing besides tired with the stroke. I didn't even realize what had happened until they told me at the hospital after laying on the floor for two days. I was alone, so it took 2 days for someone to find me. I spent 2 weeks in the local hospital, then 3 months in the medical center in Hoiuston, then 3 months in intensive in-patient therapy. I went home, fell and broke a rib. ZBack to a hospital for 6 weeks, then back home for good. Early this year (Like January 1. I got too weak to stand up, so my children called emergency services who took me to the emergency room. I had an intestinal infection and was in sepsis.
After 2 weeks of heavy antibiotics, I was strong enough to stand up, so they sent me back to a therapy facility for 4 weeks, then back home.
Hopefully that's all the hospital that I want to see.
The doctor told me
1) It's a miracle that I survived a massive stroke.
2) If I had gotten to a hospital in 4 hours instead of 2 days, they could have reversed the stroke damage and I would have been back to my ornery self.
3)Psychological and Psychiatric evaluations reveald that many brain was just fine.
Interestingly after the stroke, I could only speak Spanish, but after 2 days, my English, German and Portuguese came back just fine, the experts have no idea why that happened.
