When is a stroke lucky? ... When it is a TIA and you had no clue you were even a candidate for a stroke. Ron considers himself blessed to have had his 'stroke'. Now he knows to take his meds. We also know what signs to look for and exactly what to do if we see a one. A TIA is a warning signal of an impending major stroke within a year if precautions are not taken.

This time I drove him to the hospital. He had passed all the little tests I had given him. But he just wasn't right. We caught it in time. He got worse after arriving at the hospital. If there is a next time, I will know to call 911 immediately so that they can administer anti stroke procedures much more quickly.

Ron was not happy to be in the hospital, especially during the bad days, but he did perk up when people came to see him and he was pleased to have Fox News.
