My Triumph Over Stroke

TELEVISION CAMPAIGN!! Yesterday, Crouse Health launched a new campaign to reinforce the need to get to the hospital ASAP at the first sign of a stroke. We are getting the word out on preventing, recognizing and recovering from Stroke. Way to go team!!

——————————————————————————————-

On May 22, 2018 I awoke in the midst of a stroke. I didn’t know it at the time. Denial made me think that the paralysis I felt on my left side was either a pinched nerve or I had slept on my side and caused my left arm, hand, and leg to be “asleep.” The symptoms did not fade.

I tried to use my left arm and hand. It was a no go. I tried to pick things up. They dropped to the floor. I tried to play my guitar. Nothing.

We called Dr. Cohen’s office. They put me through immediately. I can still hear his voice. “Call 911. Have them take you to Crouse. Trust me.”

So began my journey and the start of my new normal. A life after stroke.

In the coming weeks I will share more of my journey back, My Triumph Over Stroke, but for now, read this info and take it to heart.
