I had my stroke on Sep 22, 2019. I fell twice in shower. The first time, I was able to get up the 2nd I wasn't. I pounded on shower, my daughter (Registered Nurse) heard dogs barking. she came into my bathroom and helped me up and to get dressed. I fell twice more and she informed me I was having a stroke, she noticed my face and slurring of words. We were to local hospital withing 30 minutes of start of my Ischemic Stroke, and the ER gave me TPA and had me flown by plane to the top hospital in state to treat me. When I left the local hospital, I was paralyzed on let side. I had a Mechanical Embolectomy performed by the Neuro Team and was home on the the 25th of September with minor left side deficits. My surgeons kept calling me a Very Very Lucky Man in the hospital.
